It was the BMW OEM original that leaked. Though the car is 6 years old, it only has 42k miles on it and has been pampered. I never touched the mirror either... it was set right from the moment I...

Everyone keeps telling me that 18" VB3 CSLs are on back order until July. I like the look of this wheel, but I'm surprised that they are out of stock for so long. Is this correct???

The forum was little help re tire size as the combinations were all over the place, however I did find that 235/40/18 is a difficult to source tire size. I am going to go with 225/40-18 to avoid...

Nick,

235/40/18 for the front would be 1/2" taller than the rear tire. It seems counterintuitive that this would be the right size. I am not challenging, but genuinely curious why 235/40/18...

Sorry for the typo. :facepalm:

Why do you suggest 235/40/18 for the front? Won't this increase the diameter over stock? Isn't 235/35/18 closer to the stock diameter.

Thanks again,
Jim

Tires?

Nick,

I am now looking for tires with this configuration but want to maintain the stock diameter of 24.878" (205/55/16). Would this be a good fit w/out having to add plates?

What is the correct offset, going with Charles' suggestion of 8.5/235 front and 9.5/255 rear?

It occurred to me last night that a staggered setup may cause problems with tire rotations since these would be rotated side to side and (I think) most performance tires are uni-directional.

Thanks for your help!

One last thing, did you have to alter your suspension (change camber, lower, etc.) to get the best out of this?

Thanks again,

Is there a practical reason for the offset, or is it done for a more aggressive look?

I read somewhere that offset will add understeer, yet I'm hoping to improve handling.

Thanks,
