BMW stock calls for -2 deg in the rear and 0 in the front.

I think they do this to to put some understeer in the car, as most drivers are "safer" with understear then oversteer.

Having the wrong tire pressure in the fronts can also cause wear.

You can also tell what the cause is generally by looking at where the wear is.

They will fit on a 8.5 rim

My race tires are 255/40/17 on Kosei 17X8.5 rims. You still need the 10mm space up front however to move the tire off the shock.

They are BBS REs. I bought them from EuroSport who helped with the fitment and fender rolling, but tirerack sells them. Just order the rear fitment X 4 and run a spacer.

Same 18X9 as the rear with +45 offset and then a 10mm spacer for the front. The front fit easier then the rear, as I had to roll the fenders there.

I have 550F/500 rear and have no issues at all street driving. With the shocks set to soft it makes for a firm yet not at all jaring ride.
