My Ride: E46 325i
Gents I have read this thread from start to finish in about a week!! lol each night I keep going... New to the scene only been in a E46 for a week! It's a 325i face lifted sedan... I plan on doing mods to suspension and guards as I love the stanced / poked look. But I am also on a budget so will need to go in steps. First step is buying wheels. I have my heart set on a set of VMR's from about 20 pages back or so... 19 x 9.5 http://www.velocitymotoring.com/wheels_v713.html which offset should I go to get that aggressive look but not be stupid to drive? Yes I plan on running a small stretched wheel and yes I will slam it... all in due time. For now as its my daily without coilovers and camber plates ect will a 33 offset be about right? I would prefer not to run spacers as I have the option to buy new rims and choise what I want!? I have read the whole thread and seen plenty of cars with this exact sizing but unknown if I cna get away with it, without any other mods? Any info would be great! I've loved every minute spent in this thread!

Cheers Dave

I could be wrong but I don't think you'll be able to slam it on 19's and still have poke.

You have to tuck 19's in order to slam it. So you should go for 19x8.5's I think.

If you want poke then you're better off with a smaller size wheel like a 17 or 18.

But I could be wrong

Don't try to poke 18s out back if you want to be actually slammed. Lol. Trust me on this one. I was tucking rear rim on 18s and still wasn't low enough.

hmm well I ordered 19s so it looks like I will be getting some coilovers too.. I hear a lot about camber plates.. Can someone explain to a noob how you to get aggresive camber? like what exactly is changed? I understand coilovers and how they work. Does anyone have any pics of their wheels off, just of their suspension setup with Camber mods? Just keen to see it - then I will know how it works!

Please go and google or youtube this information, thanks. It's readily available all over the internet, not just here.

Those aren't square wheels, they are staggered.

Just teasing for now. Funny because they are all the way down but the fronts are still so f ing high! I need to take the helper springs out. Ordering some camber arms and camber plates to go a little lower.
