Default Pic Request OEM 18x9 Square Set-Up on E46 //M3

I'm looking for pictures of an OEM 18x9 Square Set-Up on an E46 M3.
If possible, with a 10-15mm spacer in the rear making it as flush as possible...

I can't seem to find any decent pictures of this set-up anywhere!

Thanks ahead of time!

Awesome!
Thanks, 951kid.

You seem to be lowered a decent amount... Do you experience any rubbing with the fronts? Do you have to run any major neg. camber?

Thanks!

No rubbing actually based on post track tire inspection. you are seeing the car under compression there. The car is lowered on TCK with the 13.5 and 13.0 ride height settings recommended with the kit.

Camber on the front was about -2, rear was -1.5 or something. i'd have to find my old specs, don't remember precisely - these pics are 2 years old.

The tires were dunlop Direzza D2G which were stamped as 265 but were just as wide as the (much better) 275 toyo RA1 i replaced them with which also didn't seem to rub.

Both set ups were tested on some very tight/demanding tracks that loaded the car up side to side quite heavily.
