Style 95 on e46: what did you do to make them fit?
Bought some style 95s from a 7 series and fitted new tyres of
215/35 on 9x19 fronts and 235/35 on 10x19 rears (et 24)

I'm going to fit some jom coils soon for a bit of drop, but they already slightly catch on the rear! So my question is what have others had done to make these fit without rubbing and any pics?

Here's how my coupe looks at present on standard msport suspension:

when you drop the car, because of the independent suspension it will camber in at the top the lower it goes.

Did you do a search, this has been done a few times before. most recently by EVAP, look up his build thread, He has a sedan, which your coupe is wider. But hes running like -6 degrees of camber, fukin nuts.

Might wanna try a thinner tire or camber arms and add an extra degree or 2 of negative camber.
You said it was a 235s on the back, but that 235 looks pretty wide, might wanna try a different brand. my 235s are more stretched than that.
Different tire brands fit slightly differently.

You should roll your fenders too if you havent already, better yet, shave them. that will give you an extra 4mm or so of clearance.

oh, and prepare for the negative comments from most people on this forum.

Cheers snikwad. The tyres are falken fk452 and I wouldn't want to stretch anymore than they are, but like you said, I'll get the fenders rolled anyway

Snik 02-26-2012 10:37 AM

np mate, falkens stretch great, dunno why that one looks so fat. maybe because mine are yokahomas. :dunno:
when you roll, do it a lil aggressive at the very top, with good heat, maybe you can get a lil clearance for the rim if you drop it all the way down.

Not a fan at all!

Love style 95s, just needs a good drop

Snik 02-26-2012 11:34 AM

see how its done son.

That blue Hungarian one looks good, though not sure I'd go that low, depends if it rubs. Here's one from the UK

domcreates 02-26-2012 12:15 PM

I love how these set ups look when they are lowered. Roll and pull your fenders to make them fit with a drop :)

Snik 02-26-2012 12:18 PM

im sure that one from Hungary rubs. looks like its damn near sitting on the tires. :)
The one you posted looks great too, but more practical as far as rub and ride height.

Rocketr 02-26-2012 06:01 PM

I'll prob go for the gold drop look as I want it to be practical, but will see how low I can go anyway. Coils on first then I'll get the arches/fenders rolled

Snik 02-26-2012 06:04 PM

nned to find me a set as beater wheels so i can refinish my others. :(

Evap 03-04-2012 01:52 AM

A little bit of camber and they'll fit fine. Coupes have way more room than sedans. Op, lemme know if you decide to sell them haha. I damaged one of my rears pretty badly today.

Cheers evap, having coils fitted Friday and completely set up for these wheels, looking forward to it!
As for selling, not likely lol and I'm in the uk so prob easier for you to buy them there :)

A 225 tire in the back will really help you. Then just roll your fenders and you'll be fine. Further fender work like pulling the lips , might be too expensive and not worth the hassle as you'd have to repaint the fender lips ....

Evap 03-04-2012 12:38 PM

225 is a crazy stretch. It's really not necessary.

Nah 235 will do me, I don't want a stupid stretch!
