What are your tire sizes?
haha yes yes i know exactly what your saying. I was going to go with something else at first but then I realized that i had to go with something classy looking against the red and i love it. It looks agressive but clean at the same time.

Tires are:
215/35/19 F
225/35/19 R

You haven't rolled at all yet? If not it'll ride perfect once you do.

Your car is a great example of the why the e46 is perfect. You literally just have to lower it and throw some wheels on it. Then boom, you're done.

Did you get your lm reps from ESM as well? Also yeah its crazy because the online pictures dont do these wheels justice until you see them in person. Thanks for the compliments

Thanks, yeah that side shot is how the car is sitting right now. I still have to adjust the collars slightly once i roll the rears though. I'm gonna take some more pictures today and I will be installing slotted and cross drilled rotors today!

Yeah since i had the stock zhp 18's and lowered the car i realized that 18's were just a tad too small. I wanna see pics of yours! Since im doing the brakes today ill try and take pics of the whole car and the angel eyes. I just hate taking pics because my neighbors look at me wierd haha.

Yea im gonna be 'that' guy who says you should put the stock zhp wheels back on. They look much better. Also 19s arent good for handling or acceleration.

Turner used 19's on their ZHP project car. Seemed to handle and accelerate just fine with the few mods they did to the motor and suspension. Hell, real BBS LM's don't weight that much less than fakes (25-26lbs for 19's depending on the width).

http://www.turnermotorsport.com/t-pr...-330i-zhp.aspx

And, OEM ZHP's aren't that light. 28 lbs or so a piece

http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=519004

I think the 19's look fantastic, and probably don't hurt the performance enough for mortals like us to recognize or feel.

Thats fine, some people like the stock look and others dont. I like how the 19's look and its handles just fine.
