My Ride: '05 330i ZHP
LTW Motorsport Empower Mesh

Hi boys and girls,

I had a lot of troule finding pics when I was shopping so here goes.

These are 18X8.5 ET40 Empower Mesh Wheels with 255/35/18 Yokohama Advan Sport on my 2005 ZHP with stock suspension.

The ride is nice, handling on the road is quite predictable. Perfectly neutral in my favorite onramp. Slight vagueness in steering on ondulated roads, especially in the wet. First track day is scheduled for June 7th. I will report back then.

The rears rub slightly over large bumps with rear passengers. Ideal setup in my mind would be a 235/40 or 245/35 which would not rub and would narrow the fronts down to get better steering feel.

I hope this helps shoppers ...
