My Ride: 04 Tiag M3 E46
UPDATES:

Sold my ARC8's and decided to run a square set OEM 18s.
It will be my spare set along with the 2nd set of Meisters that I ordered.
It would be a good set to have for long drives, when the car is in service, etc.

SPECS: (for some people that would ask)
18X9 ALL AROUND
265/35/18 Hankook EVO12's
Camber: -2.1 all around
FRONT: has 5mm spacers
REAR: has 12mm spacers
NOTE: NO RUBBING AT ALL! (rear fenders are rolled/ nothing done to front fenders)


THE DAY WHEN I SOLD MY ACR8's to Charlie! (MY CAR ON THE RIGHT & CHARLIE'S ON THE LEFT)



WHEN I INSTALLED THE FIRST REGULAR SET OF OEM 18's TEMPORARILY
(while waiting to get the 2nd set of OEM 18s so that I could run all 4 rears)



TOOK OUT THE FRONT OEM 18's THE SAME DAY AND FOUND A 2ND SET TO PICK UP





THE NEXT DAY, PICKED UP THE 2ND SET OF OEM 18'S AND DELIVERED THE OTHER 4 FRONT WHEELS TO CHARLIE ( since he has a ZHP that he can use all 4 fronts as his winter set up)





2 OF THE 4 OEM 18'S WITH THE NEW HANKOOK TIRES 265/35 MOUNTED
(still need to mount the other 2 tires tomorrow)





SOME PHOTOS TAKEN TODAY (with the 265/35 tires up front and still stock pilot sports 255/40 rears) JUST TO GET AN IDEA OF WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE.










Everything will be completed by tomorrow. I am having the shop mount the tires on the other 2 wheels and I will update this thread with better photos of the complete set up!

UPDATES:

Dropped by the shop yesterday at SYNERGY AUTO LAB to finally complete the mounting of the tires.
I also left the car today at ACE PERFORMANCE for Inspection 2 and upgraded cam bolt kit for the vanos, vanos filter, oil pressure valve etc... It's maintenance time!
Hopefully this Saturday, I'll have the car back. I will find time to do a proper photo shoot with the new set up.


OLD WORN OUT TIRES



NEW TIRES GETTING READY TO BE MOUNTED

ALL DONE!

You know when your wiener has just had enough. Starts rustling, flying all over the place. Yelling and doing the windmill by itself.

Thats what this thread is to me.

Something about the square 18"s set up. It just looks so right. Congrats!

Looking forward to it Brian! Good thing you're replacing the VANOS bolts. Nice. How is the exhaust cam sprocket tabs? Hopefully they are all okay and you don't need to change them out. iirc, that sprocket costs $900
