Ditto. 800 front is a starting point.

Either OEM or another source... not a VCSL unit, its too heavy for a CF roof.

Re: Apex ARC-8 10"x18 fitmet E46-M3 - Oops

I fit 18x10.5 +25 up front with -3.6 camber, 18x10 +25 will clear with -3.3.

You'll love the JRZ's, I would recommend you switch to a GC race plate. You'll have a larger range of camber adjustment...

Re: Front wheels not centered

There is something wrong for sure.

Bent arm, knuckle, any maybe even subframe. I would get it checked out.

Re: I run HAWK HPS

P.Mu pads are awesome. We just switched over to P.Mu pads and have no regrets, we're running the same compound as the ALMS team. :thumbsup2:

For more dual purpose use they offer the "Club Racer"...
