True. He has a perfect size wheels, Why would you poke an m3? beefy tire is the Ideal way to go. He just need to go down about 1/2 or 3/4 to improve handling. There is a different between aggressive looking and real aggressive for driving. That's why I cant understand the point of this thread...

Although I do agree with you, the car posted doesn't have meaty tires. With that said, he needs to either poke them harder or put it down IMO. It would be a different story if he was running a 265 with those specs but it looks like he's on a 235.

I meant to say he had perfect tires. It is not too stretched, so he can lower it 1/2" and still look good. Yeah He prob running 235 or 245. If I had an M, I would def rock some 275 or maybe 285 with a 1/2 inch drop on a 10 inch wheel. No stretch at all. 808Elise is closest example to the look I would aim for. That's aggressive.

He is on 255/35 all around just like i am and we are actually lowering a bit more ASAP. just havnt had time to do so lately. He originally had 265s on the rear. ended u going 255 instead thinking that if we ever wanted to swap wheels for a bit it'd be easier for me to do a 255 then a 265... great guy. lol....

ill post more when its lowered i think he will be spacing out a little more too but we havnt really talked about it.

Yea, that's just a little bit too much for me, but TEHO

You could eat off those wheels with that camber... That camber reminds me of a riced honda IMO

+1

The style of wheel just doesn't flow with an E46, for me.....but, as long as the owner likes it, that's all that matters.

Thanks. I am glad to hear this coming from the manufacture of my rims. Got to say I am sold on 18s from here on out. Thanks for making great wheels. Let me know if you need any pics for your site.
