Guys,

If I decided to go with HM2 staggered set up, is there any DIY on shaving fenders or rolling fenders or what not anywhere on this forum?

You guys rock!

DO NOT DIY!!!! when it comes to rolling or shaving fenders. have a pro do it for you. There is a fender rolling tool. its cheaper to pay a tech to do it for you then buy the tool to do it ur self. Plus they have the experience to do it right. Shaving also. you need to use a rotary tool to do this and apply the neccessary touchups and paint sealant to prevent rust.

I think DIY on fender trimming would be a good weekend project, no? ... j/k guys... I'm just curious on the DIY. I'll go to a reputable bodyshop for fender trimming or rolling

Yep! I'm thinking to go with HM2 stagger set up. However, if the rear fenders are quite though deal with, I might have to go with PG2 - 19x8.5 all around (which will cost me more $$$ ).
What I'm trying to say is, I read a lot of people with 19x10 in coupe and having problem with the rear tires rubbing their rear fenders eventhough, the fenders have been shaved....

yes, with the HM2s, they have a et of 38. where as PG2s have a 44 or 42. This means the HM2s will stick out farther than the PG2s. thats why even if u shave the fenders u may still experience rubbing. of course, you can still roll what is left of the fender and hopefully that'll do the trick. the 19x10 HM2 should fit w/o rubbing if u go with a lesser aggressive spring set. like HR sport.

I love Lips, on girls and wheels - HM2!

HM2, to me, looks awesome. Those lips!!!! Also, HM2 look more cleaner and less expensive. I'm getting 19" HM2's for my M3. I prefer the more toned down - but subtle aggressive look.

I see....

lilherc79, my plan is to have Bilstein PSS as my suspension upgrade. And, if I took both rear perchers (sp?) on the PSS to give a little more lowering, would 19x10 still rubbing the fender? (assuming I shaved and roll whatever left on rear fenders)

okely dokely... I'll either PM or email him asap...

Thanks dude!

Btw, is there any downside from having staggered set up. I mean, other than I will not be able to rotate tires?

it'll definitely slow ur car down. Also, wiht the difference in diameter, you will also lose DSC and ABS because the computers are thrown off track.

I'm assuming at the dealer. Within the next couple of weeks, I have to go to the dealer for a regular maintenance. I'll ask this question to the tech and let you know what the answer will be

Both HM2s and PG3s have 19x8.5 +38s in the front and 19x10 +44 in the rear. The PG2 is the one that is different (19x8.5+35). There is no stagger for 3 series available in the PG2 unless your car is an E46 M3.

Hope that helps.

Mike
