After waiting a very long 8 months, my wheels finally arrived. With no time wasted I got the tires mounted and slapped them on. I had to raise the rear 1.5cm and max out the rear camber on stock control arms. I am in need of a really good/aggressive pull to minimize the rubbing. Otherwise I am so happy that they are finally here and on the car. This is the first set of Work Emotion XD9 ever on a E46. Sorry for the iphone pics, I'll update the thread with an official photoshoot soon.

Some other changes I've made have been that I've switched from my FK coilovers to a set of BC Racing coilovers. As well I finally got my oem m3 side skirts painted and installed.

Work Emotion XD9
18x9 +20 215/40/18
18x10 +18 225/40/18









UPDATE! I got the chance to to take some better pictures.

8k, 6k. Right now that really isn't enough as im rubbing hard. I'm looking to get a good pull done soon, to reduce that rubbing.

6k in the rear, with the original spring placement? that is not nearly enough...should be running more like 8k F, 10k rear (450/550 lb/in)
