Talking Hate It Or Love It... Fixed my Rubbing Situation. 4x4. Not Hellaflush Approved. YET.

I don't expect to be applauded for this by some. I do expect the following comments...

"You're too high. 4x4 status" - I'm in the process of lowering it by next week
"Aren't those so and so's wheels" - Yes.
"Wrong offsets." - Yes.
"I liked your old VMR's better" - They were nice and very hard to let go, but I always wanted a lipped wheel. I still love VMR though.
"Stretched tires are dangerous" - Yes.
"Do you rub?" - No.
"More pics." - Later.

Not too low, looks good the way it is. Only thing that would make it better is correct offsets and good fitting tires.

Always a step above the rest aren't you? Looks good, very different, I do admit I liked the old wheels more. But you are setting the standard when it comes to badass 135i's. Congrats on the new wheels.

How is the fitment with the big brakes behind them? What are the wheel specs? I like the self-administered Q & A, lol.

No rub even with 4 people in the car. I'm just so used to rubbing that I feel like im in a 4x4 when it doesn't rub

Dont know how in the hell you arent rubbing THAT close to the fender, that low and with wheels that close to the outside edge. Unless you drive on nothing but the smoothest roads. That or you're on bags..
