I'm assuming the mt1-r was perfect in the rear, did you ever try to mount them on the front? I'm curious about potential caliper clearance when going down to 17"s. I would think the 44 offset would work well comparing to the 18's, except for the potential caliper issue...

Marwan was a good sport, and nice enough to test fit the fronts (and rears) for me, because I had the same concerns. Everything fits very well. There is as much brake clearance as I think you can get with a 17" wheel. Both front and rears look to be perfect fits for the 135i. Can't wait to mount them up!

Thanks for the wheels Marwan, it was a pleasure meeting you and your tii!

Take care,

Tim

Yeah we did mount the mt1's on the front plenty of room for the caliper but you would need to run a spacer because the rim touches the strut slightly.
