    She can melt rubber at her lips...

    ..but first I thought I'd snap some pics just to always remember what an aggressive fitment on my car would look like for good experience and reference.

    My friend lent me his wheels for a few days while I fooled around with them and well....the title says it all once you hit the last pic. The rears are just 19x9.5 ET20 but I added a 12mm spacer to make it a grand total of ET8. Let's see the outcome during a quick impromptu photo session in the middle of work!!













    And well....I learned a lot from this stupid wheel trick during this past few days...

    LOL Pizza.....My driver side wheel fender doesn't agree. My 18 winters are back on now...that drive home with no rub issues was more fantastic than cruising slow and not hitting any big dips while turning right. I launched my car three times in a row since I got the pleasure of first at the highway red light. That was far more fun than just looking cool. LOL

    My friend has them without spacers on his M3 and it's still beautiful fitment. I know that I can roll the fenders with it fitting ET8 no problem. It's funny that when my friend borrowed the 12mm spacers to test on his car he only rubbed when his car was loaded up with 4 people. I guess every car is a bit different with potentially different suspension and alignment setups. He's even lower than me on ST coils but I set my rear KWV2's to soft so I can get more traction in the back.

    Oh gawd yes....it'll just take some minor body work to be able to have this look and still be able to drive hard!

    You need to make an offer on those wheels. The color is just perfect for Estoril.
