I'll probably end up copying those specs on different wheels. What suspension are you on? Rokkor?

What are the stock rates that came with the F2's? I had them on my previous car but didn't know how they were for a BMW? Front all the way down and rears like 3/4 way down? Any other mods done like camber plates etc.

stock spring rates are 8k front and 10k rear. i put the 5.5" rear springs on the front and bought Hyperco 4" 11k springs for the rear. the back is almost the whole way up on the adjuster. in the pics i had a little under 3/4" frame to ground clearance, i was 1/4" from being all the way down

now i'm 1/2" off ground up front all the way down. F2's come with camber plates up front and i bought some camber arms for the rear. they're just some ebay ones i bought off a friend that ended up not needing them for his e36 m3

Stock springs on the F2's are...
Front : 7" length 3" I.D 8k spring rate
Rear : 5.5" length 3" I.D 10k spring rate

hope that helps. any other questions feel free to pm me

What's up guys, I'm currently slamming my e46 an I'm running 18 vmrs, I have coil overs, was curious on what size tire would be best to run on 18x8.5 & 9.5s.. I wanna be slammed and not rub haha. Would 215/35 be ok all round?

Don't do square tires on a staggered setup. Make the stretch match as best you can. 215/35 on a 9.5 is perfect imo.
