    This is the setup I run on my e36. I'm using a 5mm spacer with the wheel still sitting on oem hub lip. Works fine

    Bump! So just to clarify, on an e36M if I was running stock suspension I would need a 3mm spacer to run 245 in the front? What if I was using H&R sport springs? Basically my question is what is the max tire size I could fit without camber plates. From this thread I am guessing 245/40/17 in the front an 255/40/17 rear with a 3mm spacer front and a roll in the rear. I am okay with maxing out the stock camber. Correct?

    They look a lot like BBS RC. Are these a replica or something?

    I think that's the idea, yeah. But unlike most replica wheels they are also fairly lightweight - so that's a win/win situation.

    You can fit 245's up front without camber plates, but I would to all the freebee mods to add as much camber as you can since it will look aggressive. If you're running a max perf. summer tire you'd need a 10mm spacer for the front with the 9" wheels. We're starting up a groupbuy shortly for 17x8.5" et40 wheels that don't need front spacers with some 245's.

    Here are some more photos:

    Here's a 1 series running our track setup.

    This allows the 215 fronts to be replaced with a 255!!!, and the rear 245 with a 275 or even 285 with zero modifications to the fenders.

    Here's the BR Racing 1 series running our wheels for their street setup. 245 front 255 rear, but it can take a 275 no problem.

    I'm decently sure that I'm gonna be saving up for a set of these sometime in the future.

    you have to run spacers with every 17x9" wheel unless it's low offset, because the NT-01 will touch the strut tube. It's a tire issue not a wheel issue.

    There is nothing wrong with quality hub centric 10mm spacers on a track car. if you look at any E36 bmwcca club racer, your almost 100% guaranteed to find at least a 10mm spacer on the front (for the same reason).

    I don't know of anyone that had a spacer related issue, that was not caused by very obvious and avoidable user error.

    I see you make a 17x9, do you make a 17x9.5 or perhaps 17x10?

    We won't be able to cater to those sizes sadly, but we'll be expanding our 18" fitments further
