Back on that staggered 189 setup again, loved having these on my sedan a few years ago.

18x8, +34, running a 225/40 up front.
18x8.5, +37, running a 245/35 in the rear.

Lowered on Vogtland springs, might throw a 5mm spacer on the rear in the future just to get it to sit a little more flush.



Edit: Better pictures posted below.

Looking really good on those 189's. I've been working on refinishing a set (slowly) and should be getting them on my sedan sometime soon. Seeing these pics makes me want to hurry up and finish already.

Yeah they suit the E46's really well I find. I got these last summer and spent most of the winter refinishing & painting them as well.

New setup I got a couple months ago. Replika R208's in 18 x 8.5, +35 square, running 225/40 Firehawk 500's all around with a 5mm spacer on the rear. Went a bit conservative with the tire size but it was all I could get on short notice (the wheels showed up a month early!) so in the spring I'll be getting a set of 255/35 all around - staying with the Firestones as I'm really impressed with them.
