great thread, but i dont understand why people cant put wider tires on their rims. It looks stupid as crap to have the edge of your rims sticking out. That increases the chances of scratching it by soo much.

You can only go as wide a tire to the point where it rubs the fender so sometimes they need to run a narrower tire to eliminate the rubbing. But I understand what you're saying though, when you mean a really low offset wheel with very narrow section width tires. Some people call it a lifestyle.

Went out with some friends to shoot some pics today after lunch.

Busted one of my CF splitters on the dirt road trying to make a U-turn

Note: Still havent got the front bumper repainted yet.











Dirt Road - 1
CF splitters - 0



For those that didn't see the specs from a few pages back. Wheels are 19x9.5 +33 all around with 8mm spacers up front on 235/35/19's

Got 235 35 19 all around. Old pics tho cuz last week i did a drift/burnout on a flat rear tire soo now i got 245 on my rear tires..i like it tho.

I wanna do spacers but not sure whats safe to run what do you think?

Also plan on buying an m3 bumper along with smoked sidecorners and sidemarkers but after seeing bobby fresh's e46 i might just get a csl bumper and call it a day haha

looks good, but you need a drop and spacers before a front bumper.
