But not sure if i want the 205/45's (at tempe)... what do you reckon?.. or should i just go 215/40.. that should give me more clearance at the front but then again i dunno if its worth it for 10mm skinnier. I wish i could just find some 205/40s!!!
Yeah, i'll do gloss black tomorrow

My car is still in pieces lol..need to fit the sideskirts and front bar and lip.

Hmm, yeah im not sure..the damage is usually when they remove the old tyre..Fitting the new ones wont scratch it.

yeah not sure about the 205/45s..might be too tall
215/40s is better than your current setup, it will give you more space. But if you can 205/40s will be perfect! seriously just give some shops a call, you'll find some. I'll even help you

if not, try finding 215/35s for the front..should give you the same clearance as 205/40s..

if youre game..look at this!

215/35s on 9.5"

I'm going all black Steve like I mentioned at the beginning of your thread, gloss kidneys and CSLs. Hopefully it turns out nice, will post once work is done in a few weeks. I'll understand if you want to verbally abuse me for half copying you, ha ha.

Style 95s look awesome brother and unique colour of the car!

So if I was to get the same wheels what do I need to do exactly? I'm a noob at cars but want to go for the OEM look.

Mines a 2001 330i with the same stock wheels as you.

It'll be pretty hard to find the same Style 95 wheels.

Seeing as though your car is a sedan, you would need to roll your guards, slightly pull it and run stretched tyres.

ps. Steve, post up some recent pics of your car or else i will!
