i don't remember the exact numbers, but my rear camber is fairly mild... so yah, slight negative is probably an accurate way to put it.

my car isn't very low, but i'd say that if it was lower, the tires would tuck into the fender. as of right now, if it's just me in the car, i RARELY rub. when the car is packed full of people and stuff, then it'll rub a bit. it's really not that bad though....i've found that i can live with it.

Kinda off topic but does anyone know any 18 wheels that will fit 380mm brembos?

Mine with a 275/35 in the rear does tuck under the fender, and I only rub on turns when I have a passenger. I'm really low too. I think if fenders were rolled it would work fine. Good to know that you've got the same thing with a 265.

I'm really talking about the 240 that turbo2nr posted up and his statement about how it's all about seeing how close you can get the rim to the fender without hitting... How can that NOT be performance-defeating? I don't have anything against any of the M3's posted here, just the concept of doing that to an M3. Wider track, yes. Stretched out tires? No thank you. Rims precariously close to the fender? Absolutely not.

I'm running wider than stock tires and track width, I have absolutely nothing against that. No hate, just no desire for something that doesn't enhance the already fantastic performance of my M.

255/40/18 will put the height of the the tire about 26 inches which is the oem height. 255/45/18 would be about 27 inches tall

I've been saying this for a long time now...and make it known everytime somebody gets stupid aggressive wheels that dont fit with stretched tires...freakin rim sticks out an inch past the tire and looks stupid!
