Ok, i've totally switched which wheels I want, it is now down to the BBS LM or BBS CH :D ... After thinking all day in school today :)eek: :D ) i figured the SSR GT3's were a great price, and very sweet looking, but i wanted a little less rotor showing, more spokes, etc. So after seeing bbs lm's and similiar styles, i am deciding between the two bbs. Now i hear the BBS LM's 19x8.5 would need work done if i were to get that on my 325i sedan w/ sp. So thats the only problem with those. The BBS CH on the otherhand dont need any work, unless i am unaware of fender work needed for the CH's, but otherwise they are an easy install for the shop :thumbup:

for either set i plan on setting up 19x8.5 or 9.5 (probably 8.5 for LM)

The LM's are almost double the price of the CH's but if you can afford them along with the necessary modifications, i say definitely the LM.

yea, anyone know how much the modifications would cost, b/c the wheel price isnt what bothers me, its the work afterwards :eeps:

I believe if u want to go with LMs, the front offset is +32...
running 235/35/19....I think you might get into some rubbing problems...

+35 fits perfect...+32 will stick out a little....hmm...Danny Choe runs +32mm up front as well...you might wanna see..
For the rears...I suppose a little fender rolling should work? :dunno:

my body shop charges $100...
but it really depends on the place...
Sometimes they charge /job sometimes they charge by labor...

done it before.....as long as the car is not slammed you'll be fine

there's probably a 50/50 chance a fender roll will be required, but if it is, it will be minor.

this case depends on how low the car is
