Default Fitment Question

Hey guys,

I got a chance to pick up some BBS LM's but Im not sure if there gonna fit or not. Or how much fender work im gonna do? The specs are 18X9.5 ET 34 Front, and 18X11 ET13 Rear. I got a good deal on them but not to sure what tire to run or how much fender work is gonna be done. Im stock suspension for now??? Any input. I plan just to run H&R Sport with koni's soon.

Fronts are fine, you're gonna need some negative camber and maybe some fender work to make the rears fit but it will. The rears will be a bit aggressive but will work. You're probably gonna have to run a 275 in the rear. I fit a 19x11 ET 25 with a 275 along with a 10mm spacer which was a final ET 15. I am rolled, cut, and have arca's set at around -1.75. The stock rear arms can adjust to at least -1.5 if i remember right. The only tricky part is your lowering springs. I would recommend coils so you can make adjustments easier. Having springs means no adjustment which makes adjustments harder especially with the offsets you want to run. BTW, they should look sick!!! Post pics when you get em on!

This is a long shot, but do you still have the wheels? Those are M Coupe / Roadster fitments and I might interested if you want to sell them.
