Incredible on both cars! Hey I have a set of these same wheels for my 323i and wanted to just get the final spacer/Tire setup. I am guessing I would steed need 2 10mm spacers, 2 20mm spacers and then what about tire size? Going to be running Eibach pro-kit springs. Thanks in advance! Also will have it ready in a few weeks and will make sure to post pics. Went dark charcoal on the wheels against a silver car.

Thanks! no pix thread of my car yet. the current setup is just temporary. just using these to achieve the stance/fitment to my liking.. nothing fancy.

Got some custom wheels on order. will post them up when I get them
