I honestly don't know how to adjust it without plates but I KNOW it can be done as it has been done to my car and a number of others. I will call someone and find out. As far as measureing, there are devices/tools that measure camber.

I saw those for sale on M3forum but I want a wider rim. Either 9.5 or 10 inch wide. I don't want to run a 275 or 285 tire on a 9 inch wide rim.

And on those Hawk pads, you might want to check the operating temp because I know that the HPS and HP Plus are autox/track pads and wont get to operating temp in the winter or when they get wet. Thus they wont stop very well when cold.

Edit: For instance, I had my PFC track pads in after an event and it was raining. I almost rearended someone becaues the pads weren't up to operating temp and barely stopped my ass in time.

Get PFC Z rated pads they are awesome!

Don't get axis ult...I even have some Performance friction Z rated that are almost new for ya...

I think those one wheels would fit b/c I put some 18x8 32mm offset on Jenny's car and they fit fine...

I will buy them from you if you have front and rear. I think I may buy those volks if this kid ends up buying my wheels tomorrow, or at least confirming a purchase.

I wanna run a 255 square setup.

Buy Kevin's Z-rated pads, they are great pads and he's selling them for a great price. The Z-rated pads will be better than the stop tech pads, and will be good enough for any spirited driving that you will be doing.

I only have front but they are almost new...I am only selling them b/c I bought a bbk and now that a relalize how great they really are I bought some z rated for my bbk even though I have a new set of axis ults.....

Call me sometime this weekend is you want to check that off set I have some wheels that will come with in a couple mm of that offset

I think she is going to be really close...maybe require some extra camber or fender rolling for 18x9 et 40 with 255s..

also here is offset calc:

Alright, would there be anything bad about having 255 in the front?

The only adjustment you have is on the top of the strut...are you lowered now? You need to have around -1 camber each side and -1/16 total toe and you will have no excessive wear or cupping.

make sure your fcab bushing and ball joints are in good shape also...

No you will be fine...for a couple years I ran 265/35/19 on a 9" for a couple years on my m3. There is some tram lining but not bad..

When I had 285s on my cobra those tram lined....but they braked freaking awesome having that much rubber

btw if your car is tram lining now...you probably need your rtabs and maybe fcab bushing replaced.
