Looks great, but 35mm on the rear with that width? I reckon you're going to have issues

 

I've just had 30mm fitted on the rear of my E60 and the bumbly little 225 width winter tyres are rubbing when I go over a bump or round a roundabout :unsure:... 20mm should cure it!

 

Cheers,

 

Nick

Hi Nick I've worked it all out and it will be fine may need to roll the rear arches slightly but only if I upgrade too coilovers

Fair comment, and that should stop the problem from happening!

 

I didn't want to go down that route, as want the ability to put everything back to standard as and when I move it on.

 

Looking forward to seeing the pics when you've got it done - the stance on mine with 15mm front and 30mm rear looks great.

 

Cheers,

 

Nick

Bog standard 17"s on 225/50 for winter and MV2 for summer.

 

Light's not great, but just took these in the local supermarket car park:

30mm spacers on the rear changed to 20mm and no rubbing...doesn't look as obvious either!

 

Brake fluid changed after two years and feels much better for it...
