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.

np mate, falkens stretch great, dunno why that one looks so fat. maybe because mine are yokahomas.
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.

You can also consider 225 40 19's. The stretch will compansate the taller sidewal.

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

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

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.

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

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.

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 ....

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