I've had a square set of et35 and now et22 ARC8s on 265/25 PSSs. Play around with the camber, but depending on how low you are you might still need to roll your fenders and quarters a bit. For what it's worth, here's a picture of the current setup; -2.5F/-2.7R with a 10mm spacer back there.

Default Apex Wheel Fitment question

I wanna say you don’t have to run a ridiculous amount of neg camber if don’t roll your fenders with 9.5” wheels.

Fender rolling is a necessity with 10” wheels.

I ran 18” ARCs with 35 mm offset and 265s on my last car. No camber plates and no rolling. Suspension was Eibach Pro Street S at the recommended height. Spacer in the rear but that’s it. Great setup.

I put one of these on the front of my car Sunday. They stick out pretty far. I actually had clearance and no rubbing with the car just sitting there with -2 camber. I have mixed feeling about that look.

Do PSS-9 have linear or progressive spring? I have KW V2, progressive spring so my APEX EC-7 et35 would touch the upper part of the spring. As a result I ran a 12mm spacer and w MPSS 265/35 I would have a very minor amount of rub, but only at the track. Otherwise no rubbing on the fender. I would expect that if you have no clearance issues with the spring on the inside then you shouldn’t have any rubbing concerns on the fender if you aren’t running a spacer.

Not the best look since the bottom outside of the tire will stick out. And the front track width will be wider with a square wheel setup. A 12mm spacer makes the track widths about equal on my E90 M3...probably similar on an E46.

I passed on them. To many concerns and issues to worry about. Going to keep looking for a set of et35s.
