255/40 on that sized rim is beefy? I run that on my 18"ers and its stretched a little.

stepped out of my car on my driveway and saw a super clean e38 and e39 parked across the street for a party.

Just a little update. I got the car back on the ground tonight with the new wheels. I still have to install the new clutch next weekend so it will go back in the air on Friday but I wanted to get it on the ground now so the new springs could do any settleing that they will need to do. I also snapped some pics of all the new lexan windows, I'm very happy with how they turned out. Last but not least are the new to me Moton Club Sports attached to the new Mason Engineering rear strut bar.
