18x10 et25 on an E90 M3 with 275/35R18 Nitto NT01s. Now they are on my E46 M3...no rubbing with some extra camber and aggressive fender rolling in the front.

This is my second set of arc-8's. This time I went with 9.5" all around vs the 9" I used to have. The only pictures I have now are of the rears, the fronts will be mounted soon. Btw this is my street set up.

Specs:
Apex Arc-8 18x9.5 Satin Black
255/35/18 Continental Extreme Contact DW
AST 4100 coilovers (great clearance for wide rims) Vorshlag Camber Plates (-2.0 front, -1.5 rear)
Shaved sh!t out of the rear fenders

Really want to get the fitment to my liking so decided to buy the rears first... 18x9.5 +22 on 225/40/18. Just installed BC racing coils no alignment yet and rolled/slight pulled quarters. So far so good for me... Please excuse the center cap.

If you dont mind me asking could you PM me who shaved your rear fenders? I'm running 18x10 arc8 with 285/35 tires and they rub with the 5mm spacer so i had to remove it for the time being. Looking to get my fenders done but I want perfection as my car is mint.

Also I plan on taking the car out today for a few shots so I'll reply back with my arc8s on the car.

• Nitto NT05 265/35 Front / 285/35 Rear
• 2.2 Negative camber front (slight rub on full turns) / 1.8 Negative camber rear (no rub but need fenders rolled/cut to accomdate the 5mm spacer needed to match the front)
• If I had to do it all over again I would of gone with a 10.5 rear
