Still in the process of deciding on square or staggered.

I'd like to get a 18x9.5" square set up without having to run more than -2 degrees of camber up front. Is there a set (Et22, ET35, or combo with spacers in rear) that will work? I plan to use 265/35/18 tires.

ET 22's with this size will require more camber based on my experience....at least -3.0 in the front with "rolled" fenders and evening loosening the fenders and pulling them out. That's what I have to do. BFG R1 dot slicks 265/35 18. The ET 22s are perfect in the rear with this tire size.

I just bought a set of the new EC-7s with 35 offset and Hankook Z214 275s all around...I am using a 12 mm spacer in the rear and they fit perfect.

The ARC-8's do have the ability to fit over a Stoptech 380mm big brake kit! The front wheels that would be able to fit over this kit are the 18x9.5" ET22 and the 18x10" ET25.

We look forward to it! You know who to reach if you have any fitment or availability quesitions.

Our 18x9.5" ET35 is a much easier fit in the front of an E46 M3 compared to some of the other 18x10" and lower offset 9.5" offerings. Depending on the type of tire you plan on using it can be close but with about -2 degrees of camber it is possible. A tire that runs larger than other street tires like an R compount or extreme performance summer tire like the Hankook RS3 or Dunlop Star Spec can have the possibility of rubbing. Make sure the alignment pins are pulled on your stock strut mounts and you have them adjusted all the way in for more camber. Most people will also use a 12-15mm spacer in the rear to fill out the fender a little bit more for aesthetic purposes as well as a wider track width.

Thanks for the reply. I have a new set of 265/35/18 Pilot Super Sports that I plan to run with these wheels (e.g., 18x9.5" ET35). Can you confirm that these will not rub in the front with -2 degree camber? If all is well, I'm ready to order a set of wheels, rear spacers, and a stud conversion kit. Please let me know!

Is there any possibility of a holiday sale? Black Friday or just a holiday season sale?
Or maybe an upcoming group buy?
