Ugh this looks so good. If you get the 255's to fit without issue, 265's are a must on the next set of tires.

WOW! Awesome set up man. That's sick how you got 9.5", my arc-8's are only 9" (I have a 10mm spacer on all 4 corners as well). I was actually thinking about going to 9.5 with 265 all around..

Thanks! Your set up is awesome as well, AST's FTW. Yeah I really should have went with the 265's, it would have been awesome. Next time around I guess.

Nice! I remember our discussion about the TSE3 just not really being an appealing sounding exhaust, and both of us getting relentlessly flamed.

I wish I had the dough for the coilovers and suspension overhaul components you're installing!

Thanks! Yeah... sometimes you just gotta know when to quit. Fanboyism is a hard thing to overcome.

So here are some really quick pics. I still need to lower more we just threw the coils on last week Sillie and I ran out of time to adjust them. I needed to get to work/school. I also need to get some spacers to push them out a little more.

Things done since last exterior shot:

-OEM M-tech 2 bumper installed
-OEM M3 Mirrors installed
-Vorst Hood Filled and Painted
-Titanium Headlight trim changed to black
-Matte black grills
-Body Trim Painted Black

(Sorry for crappy pics... no post processing at all. I have yet to install Photoshop on my new comp. )

It's worth it... concavity FTW. Oh and the nice thing is the 18x9.5 et 35's have the same concavity as the 18x10's and 18x10.5's they sell... only the hub where the lugs go is deeper, the concavity on the spokes are exactly the same.

That's perfect. Were these hard to fit in? You didn't mention anything changed. I don't wanna get any surprises.

Nope.. nothing has changed. I think I said I rolled my fenders already, and I rub in the rear a tiny bit, but that's because I haven't shaved the rear bumper yet. I will go lower this week. I'll let you know if anything changes but no problems up front at all nor do I foresee any.
