I feel like this is a dumb question....so if I purchase these on my 323CI, 2000 model will they rub. I am about to put a set of 235/40/18's, and 255/35/18's on it.

ok? - I'm looking for a number tho [an estimate or comparison to H&R, TEIN etc?] - really just want to get an idea of how soft/stiff the rear is.

It will depend on the offset of the wheel. How much does that differ from the factory tire size and offset?

It is hard to compare to those brands since I do not know their spring rates. The customer feedback we have received thus far is Street Edge is a good balance between stiff and soft.

Here is a good article on how Progressive Springs works.

Not sure....the factory wheels are 17's. I would have to look at the offsets.

My Ride: 2001 325ci
I got mine in the afternoon, installed the front and one side on the rear. Didint get to drive it because I was also installing the front calipers/discs from a 330ci on my 325ci, and while I was bleeding the system, i forgot to top off the fluid. now i got air in my entire system. I hope to bleed it tomorrow morning and then will post a review.
As of right now, installation was strait forward, perfect fit, just 2 minor complaints.
1) really wish it came with top-hats, for the front.
2) maybe it was lost in the packaging, but on the front coilover system, in the middle the big "nut of sort" that you use to adjust the ridehight, there is a little screw in there. My pakage seemed to be missing a tool to untighten it so i can adjust my ridehight.

Besides that, everything was EXCELENT.
