BTW, any people in here change their wheels?
Which wheel you go for and what the size?
Do you feel hard time in searching for wheels? no tire shops can exactly tell me whether 19x9.5 with ET 35 can really fit in rear. Then if you looking for other offset bigger than ET35, it's limited choice available.

ET32 should be fit if you use this for front and rear with 8.5".

My existing set is
Front et32 19x8.5
Rear et25 19x9.5

That's why, I cannot just keep the front and order another 2 for the rear. Coz you cannot sell only 2 wheels

There is a member with a red 328i with white Rota (TE37 look alike) wheels. Not sure if he is aware of this Asia page. Anyway, the specs of his wheels are Rota IKR F: 19x8.5 ET30 225/40-19, R: 19x9.5 ET35 255/35-19. He confirmed that the rears do not rub. Here is his post: http://www.f30post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=725674

Also another member running 20x10.5 ET45 285/30-20 at the back without rubbing. Doing some calculation, it is even 5mm more closer to the fenders than the above setup. I assume ET35 with 9.5 and 255 tires should be safe then (very good news!!)

I think you can order 2 8.5 for the rear....
depends on your will to fit them!

the 9.5 can sell as a pair, really not a big deal man!

Rear can use ET35 9.5j, no rub

For front wheels, if i can choose again, I will choose 9j rater than 8.5j, the rims are not concave enough for 8.5j ....

In order to ensure that the rims can fit ur car, I always suggest tire shop install the rims only and see it is fit or not. Data from internet/ other channels is not accurate enough as different people have different style.

Who can open a facebook HK F30 Group for easy chatting and share photo??

Are you sure to install those spring on your car?
It is already quite bouncy for my taste with the original M sport suspension.
I think those springs will make you throw up on those port holes road in hk...

i couldnt find the group in FB . -_-

and that plasti dip guy , how much do they sell u for one ?
Strange that none of the MK car accessories shops sell plasti dip, it will be a big hit.

I just wanna lower it down a bit, paint the brake calipers in red with brembo decal, black rim with white lips, Kellners piggyback ( http://www.kelleners-sport.de/b2b/in...vid=852&cat=28)

Sort of my stage 1 modification

I think the point to change the spring is just to lower the gap between the wheel, I also find the gap is quite big. In previous BMW model, if you choose the sport suspension, the gap is not that big.

I think of this also, but not sure about the warranty isssue.

Kelleners piggyback is so expensive, and I want to wait until the AC schnitzer, Coz you can get the factory warranty if you use AC, If not becoz of this reason, a lot of cheaper alternative piggyback.

For H&R Spring, outlook is much better as the gap between fender and wheel is narrow.
Front and rear around 1.5 fingers, it does not rub the fender for my aggressive offset and without camber adjustment.

For chipbox, it will not harm your warranty if u disconnect it before inspection. I can unplug and plug again TMC chipbox within 5min. easily
- Manfold air pressure and turbo boost presure socket only~
