My Ride: M3
anyone running 19x8.5 et20 on the frontof their e46 M3??

tried googling and stuff but not much comes up.

just seeing if anyone is rocking 19x8.5 et20 on the front of their E46 m3?
if so, what tires? suspension mods?

currently got zcp suspension all around, was thinking of throwing H&R sport springs on as well but not sure how it'll work out with
front rims being a bit on the aggressive side.

19x8.5 ET20 is 15mm more aggressive than what we recommend with our wheels. I've definitely seen it done though!
