Recommended Posts

Cheers

Don't think you'll get 20mm on a non-M without archwork will you?

I ran on it my first BMW 8.5 all round but wih a 215 35 tyre.

Sure it can be done with orginal tyre sizes?

Doubt it with normal 255 are tyres.. Mine are rolled (although no spacers) and I think I'd struggle with 15mm. With my old Falkens, maybe.. With these massive sidewalled Vereds no way!

15mm would be safer if you plan on sticking with OEM tyre sizes. Otherwise you'll have to go thinner?

I guess so. Maybe wih the 255 on the rear it mite be bit of an arse.

Haha tell me about it J!

Im running 20mm spacers on the rear with lowering.

Needed arches rolling to get the 255 tyres in though. Plus I then swapped to 225 rear tyre instead.

I did post some pics of the wheels/tyres somewhere.....probably in my photo blog thingy, but cant see the pictures whilst im at work.

Mines lowered on sportsline with 15mm spacers all round with staggered wheels and 225/255 tyres - when it was on standard m sport springs the were close but lowering has altered the negative camber and I'd believe 20mm spacers would fit all round

i'm running 20's on the front no problem, 15's on the rear, would need an arch chop and maybe a slight roll to run a 20 on the rear really low! check the photo gallery mate theres pics of my 'loon in there spaced 20 front 15 rear. perfect combo

Of your wanting to run 20mm you will need to change from a 255 35 to a 225 40

Here's a pic of my old one with 20 mm spacers on

I've got 15mm all round.

Standard sizes lowered (very slightly) on Eibach Pros / Bilstien B8's

They do rub very, very occasionally when accelerating hard out of a corner.

When it was standard height I got no rubbing at all.

Photo is before lowering but TBH looks more or less the same now.

Any bigger and you would want your rear arches rolled or stretched tyres.

I've got 12mm all round with 255-35 Good Year Eagle F1's and the rear was rubbing under hard acceleration on left hand bends. I've got Bilstein b14 kit but they dont go particularly low, certainly doesnt look any lower than the eibach sportline kits.

That's because your B14 kit is Bilstien B8 shocks with Eibach sportline springs.

It isnt, the b14 kit is Bilstein coilovers, not a bilstein shock/ eibach spring set up.

Sorry my mistake, I thought you meant B12 but with sport lines instead of prolines. I've got the prolines so mine will sit higher than yours!

Easy mistake, their grading gets confusing at the best of times haha really impressed with the kit and think i hit it lucky with the price, they seem to have hiked it up now!
