You're saying this could/would work: 20x9 245/30 front, 20x10.5 295/25 rear?

If so, that'd be awesome.. might try to put the old rims on my car in that case =)

Sorry for the late replays been out of town. The wheels are 20x9+35 and 20x10.5 +45. The spring are H&R super sport I originally put the 245/30/20 on the front and seemed to small with the huge gap, I would love if it was lower in the front. I ran 285/25/20 rear and have slight rub on gas tank side on small bumps but I can live with it.

As for the grills the best way is remove screws for bumper and go thru the back and loosen the grills . the lazy way is put masking tap on the hood between the grills and the hood so you won't damage the paint and use a thin flat screw driver and loosen them that way.

Your car looks very good.


I called H & R and spoke to a technician about the springs not dropping the front as low a the back. He got all defensive. I told him to check out some pictures of the f30 w the springs and said it looks perfect.

I agree that the OP's car seems high in the front. Could it be the H&R Super Sports that are high in the front? The H&R Sports that I've seen look perfect.

The 335i (white) and 328i (red) below are lowered on H&R Sport Springs and they look good.

Nice find. I agree the drop looks even on those two cars.

Any updates on this? May be interested.

Rich2K1: Where are you getting all the work done (mods and tint (% & type?))? In the L.A. area and looking for a good shop.

Your car looks sick... would consider the same setup with the wheels, but then you would have a twin running around L.A.

Curious as to what you plan to do with your headlights.

Getting my work done at LTBMW in N. El monte.He knows his stuff.I am getting a different set up by next week,getting ready for Bimmerfest. Call them ask for Long tell him you want the same set up and he may still have a set or two of the wheels in stock too.

As for Head lights I may spend more money next month lol.
