With those widths are you rubbing at all? and do you have any rubbing?

Very rarely and I mean very. It has to be a large dip that compresses the springs almost all the way down and then it will slightly catch the top of the wheel wells but not the fenders. Like I mention we added a little bit (1-2 Degrees) of neg camber on the rears to get them to tuck better and the fenders were not rolled. No camber was added to the fronts.

My reference to F30 is that he is tucking half the tires. I had mine that low and then gradually raised it a quarter inch until it stopped rubbing to get to where you see it now. He is running a narrower tire on the front and rear which not only is shorter but also made even shorter by stretching them. Some guys like to stretch the tires, but I prefer them more square.

Wow, car looks fantastic! Is it true that F30/32 has to have minimum offset of 42 for 9.5 width or more? Any lower than that, wheels will pop out of the fender? Sorry for d silly question, I'll have my f32 coming soon and would like to b ready.

I've just installed vossen vfs1 to my car. I left the wheal pressure sensors on my old set wchich will be ready for the winter and now I need to get new pressure sensors for the summer tyres. Do you know if standard BMW sensors fit to vossen or do I need to get something speciall? The guy in BMW shop told me that hes not sure if the original sensors will fit but there is an option to buy universal sensors which should be fine. Anyone has any expirience with this? I need to get rid of the orange code from my dashbords

Yes the original ones will fit. Better to just buy a new set so you don't have to change them when you swap wheels. Sensors in the USA run about 200 for a set. Not sure in your country the cost.
