Lightbulb OEM 666M Wheels Reference Pics (New pics of low buck mods added + photo link fixed)

Since this post was made many months ago and all the photolink were broken due to photobucket's bellyflop, here are some updated pics of the car with 666m:






Mods:
City of Industry front lip: (Painted by myself with Eastwood 2K spray can)
City of Industry 435i diffuser: (Center section painted by myself with Eastwood 2K spray can)
City of Industry rear spoiler: (Painted by myself with Eastwood 2K spray can)
OEM 435i GC exhaust with Mike's Muffler tips
OEM F80 kidney grilles
(Not low buck)OEM 666M wheels with MPSS tires
(Not low buck)LLumar F1 Pinnacle 50% all around except windshield, which has LLumar Air 80




---------------------original content-------------------------
My search of "666m on F32" returned no real result prior to deciding the purchase these wheels, I guess I will share them here as a reference for others whose interested to put OEM 666m wheels on their 4 coupe. The car is completely stock other than the wheels.






I like these wheels because of the good ol' Gallardo:

Thanks. Front 265/30ZR20 + Rear 285/30ZR20, they are just OEM Pilot Super Sport from an M4 that I bought the wheels from.

They look really great, glad someone finally did this!
Fronts seem to poke more than I would've expected. Mild drop and smaller tires could help with that.

Bols you'd might like this as well

You are absolutely on point Greg. I think F3X came with too much positive camber from the factory, this issue really exaggerate the poke near the top of the wheel arch. My concern for lowering is rubbing, so I am looking for springs that offer very small drop, but that small drop might not generate enough negative camber for the tires to miss the fender, and the tires came with these 666m's are so new(looks something like 90% threads) I felt terrible to switch them out for 255. Overall I have a bit of a dilemma

I am not normally a big fan of these wheels, but I think they look really good on your car for some reason. Nicely played!

Very nice setup!

Front is agressive, love the look! If you want to drop the car, i would suggest you H&R Spring which come in 2 heigh, sport spring and supersport spring. You can look on H&R Website for the exact dropping.

Other possibility is Vogtland Which is made by Eibach. Specialized in german car, offering a 10 years warranty. I've put those on my f33 and really love the drop, feeling is great, still confortable and agressive when you want it.

Like other said, maybe it will be hard to make the front fit staying under the -3 degrees camber. What are the wheels spec? If i can give you my opinion, i've just put 20x9 + 35 in front on a 245-35-20 toyo tire, dropped on Vogtland suspension and i've tried to put a 5mm spacer front and it rubs a bit on corner.

Thanks, I happened to run into these by luck as well. I was actually shopping for 437m at the time

I had my share of doubt and immediate "buyer's remorse" after I bought these wheels from a fellow member on this forum. I was thinking this will make a "Donk" car out of the F32

Indeed they are, but the interesting bit is these wheels hide brake dust much better than the 441m, maybe due the glossy machined section of the wheels bringing some highlight to maintain the visual definition of the spokes even when covered in dust, I can get by not cleaning them for a week and a half where the 441m would look like they just came back from a Le Man race in 4~5 days

The front wheels are 9X20 ET29 on these OEM 666's, Your Vossen's offset is definitely more ideal for an F32(33). I commute a lot at industrial area with extremely rough road and countless train tracks. That's how my suspension mod is going to be a bit of a dilemma.

Looks really great I love these wheels! Especially the night shots! Now I'm even more tempted to try these on the AW Gran Coupe..

The front does poke a bit though on the above pic wonder how much a smaller tire might help with that.. Does it seem too much in real life or not?

Thanks for posting!

Edit: Wanted to ask as well.. any rubbing in full lock turns?

I've been looking for pics of an F3X with these for a while now. Looks good with the AW! Seriously considering for my BSM F30...

Has anyone seen pics on an F30? Would it look at all different?

I think these 666's will look even better with your Gran Coupe because the wheels are visually quite big and the GC has the longer roofline and profile to help set them off.

With my stock sport suspension there is no rub anywhere, full lock, 4 adults and some luggage in car, big bumps, no problemo.

To give you some reference on "pokeage" of the front, here is a pic:



In my mind, if I can put another 1 degree of negative camber on the front or use 255 front tires then I think it's very safe. Now with the F8X ZCP MPSS's 265 as is, I think lowering the car with springs or coilovers with no camber plates would present a concern for me. Especially since I don't have a way to find out how much camber gain I can have when the front suspensions are REALLY compressed.

Thanks. I think I have seen a forum member in Europe posted a black F30 with 666m replicas, you can probably search it, there are probably more now. I do remember lots of those 666m replicas have difference offset compare to the OEM 666's that's posted here, so keep that in mind too. Hope this helps, make sure to post pics when you get yours

Hey man

Please update your pics as it looks like photobucket doesn't show it anymore.

Thinking of installing on my car and want to see how it looks.

This is how my set up looks with the m4 666m wheels

I'm planning to maybe do a mild drop on it but I'm not too sure I like the look of it as of now. But I'm still considering it. And I want to see your post too brotha.
