Thanks! They are 19x8.5 et20 squared with Nankang NS-IIs 215/35. These actually had a curb rashes all over, but I had them refinished and they came out really clean, like new from factory. I wouldn't recommend et20 for the front if you're not gonna run camber. They are already flush and I'm not running spacers. I want to run 5mm in the rear, but I need camber arms first to camber them a bit more so they don't rub.

Not worth it in my opinion! Well, unless you plan on dropping it another 3 inches lol, for just another inch, i would just find a way to maneuver your car into your driveway. If theres no options, leave it as is!

That's true. I definitely would like to drop it more, but if I drop the rear as well I'd need bags because they don't make cup kits for the rear (I don't think they do, I need to research though).

Obviously you have a drop in your car I'm looking at some 18x8.75 et20 squared for my 330xi without a drop on my car will I have any rubbing issues or anything?

Not sure if you'll be rubbing, but they are definitely gonna stick out for the front. I'm not running spacers on the front and they are flush after adding camber. If you don't plan on adding camber they'll definitely poke.

D2 coilovers. At first I didn't like their ride, but I was riding with them on full stiff because I thought my wheels would rub. I was able to get them to ride perfectly with 15 clicks in the front and 10 in the rear and they don't rub unless I hit a hard dip.

Gotcha. I love how the cops in my area don't bother me in my e46 or my e30. I don't even put it in the window anymore.
