Lol, Its all good. No I had Nitto 555's and Federal's in the rear. I've never had achillies before but I've heard great things about them. The tread design looks good and doesnt seem like it will make much road noise. I've read they stretch very good so I'm looking forward to getting them mounted up! I'll be sure to give updates on how the run.

Wheels are here!!!





Forged Beyern Bavaria's 18x10 et20 all around.

The fronts rub the coilover by 1mm!!!!!! Gonna run to pep boys and get some small spacers. So I wasnt able to compress the front and give a good test fit so that will come. But man I love the rear fitment!! Going to have to clean all the crap out of the rear fender so I can do some rolling.













Should be able to get the front to camber in real nicely and fit like the rear.

that test fit looks

EDIT: You didn't use my thread to help you pick wheels did you? I've never seen the bavarias on an E46 yet. I don't think. Looks great!

Haha thanks!! I had already ordered them before I saw your thread and was gonna add them, but you were already on top of it

That's another thing that I'm way stoked about! I have yet to see anyone run these!

Looks to me that TSW makes Beyern wheels.... Sadly lol.

those wheels actually look pretty nice. Different from what you normally see. Too much camber for me though. Looking forward to the outcome.

Thanks i appreciate it!!! I actually only have about -2.5 degrees of camber in the back, the way my car is leaning and the way the rear bumber curves in makes it look like a lot more.

Well, for someone who "loves being useless", you are fast making your way to the top few % of useful posters here.
Your work is inspiring!

I feel like a chick in heat who can't wait for you to get the rubber on.... (the wheels) Lol

I've checked this thread like 6 times since you posted the photos of those wheels in anticipation for shots with tires mounted. Can't wait.

Love everything about this thread until post number 105.... To each their own of course. The wheels are sick, but fitment isn't my style. Regardless, lots of great info in this thread. Rock on!
