Thumbs up 17's and Beefy Tires?

Anyone running a daily or track setup with 17's? I've recently come to love this no bs look. Can look very aggressive and would be awesome with some rotate-able 255's, even if camber plates are needed.

There are two cars in this thread that fit the bill but I'd love to see more examples.

Any and all feedback is appreciated!

I agree with your sentiments. I wish APEX made their aggressive fitment wheels in 17" diameter, tires are so much cheaper in 17" form.

The trouble is that you need at least ET45 ~ ET50 offset to fit 255s on the rear without a fender roll. Not many 17" rims available in these specs for BMW hubs.
