Did you get the tires yet?
How lowered are you?

I went with 235/40/18 for the fronts and 265/35/18 for the back and I wanted to do 275 out back.

We recommend just soap and water. Some cleaning products contain acids in them and that can corrode the finish on the wheels.

Post up pics when you can!

i think a 265 tire would work just fine but a 275 would be pushing it IMO . i know M3 can fit them but i mean i dont know for sure . the 255 is perfect for me though here are some pics . you can compare before and after with my sig pic with the old wheels .

I see you are lowered, 265 is the max lowered.
I am going to do 275 or 285 this summer, need moar tire/sidewall.

Looks good! 265 is definitely as wide as you'd want to go without doing some fender work.

Haha two feet is a bit excessive. If you are careful about parking though you shouldn't have an issue. I would recommend utilizing your mirrors when parking next to a curb though.

Picking a color for powder coating is already hard enough, then there's the added wait time! You can always have them powder coated later down the road though.
