Thanks man. I got them from A-Spec Wheels in the SF Bay Area. I think they sell them in their ebay store as well. I purchased 4 rears from them.

18x9 +35 all 4 rims
225/40/18 all around.

I put a 10mm spacer in the back.

Absolutely gorgeous, beautiful images. We, as photographers, can surely appreciate lovely photography solely for what it's worth. Love the set up and love the stance, almost exactly the look that I'll be going for once I overhaul my suspension set up. Also planning on going M-Tech II as well, so this is truly an inspiration for my car. Right click > save.

May be a stupid question, but a question nevertheless: Are your fenders rolled in the rears? If not, how often do to you rub (if at all)?

thank you. In all honesty, I am most likely done modding the 330. I will be moving on to something else hopefully by the end of the year, so I will start a new modding addiction

Thanks. It's the Hamann replica you see on Ebay. Just a word of advice, you need to modify it quite a bit to get it fit tight to the bumper. Their mold leaves lots of extra material.

Thanks man. I appreciate it. I was just testin out a new lens for the shots and turned out pretty well.

None of the fenders or quarter panels are rolled. The rear will only rub if there are 4 people in the car and I take a some pretty hard turns. Other than that, it doesnt rub.

Anytime man! Thanks for the help, too.

Judging by the bokeh, I'm going to think you used either a 85/1.2 or a 85/1.4 (... or something along the lines of that) on full frame? The bokeh even looks 135L-esque. Whatever you used, it definitely helped you create some stunning images. I personally love my 85/1.4.
