Show me your aftermarket wheel/lowering setup....

Post by silverdevill » Thu Jul 20, 2017 6:52 pm

Hey you lot!, i'm after a bit of wheel inspiration as i start my coilover/lowering spring/wheel, phase of modding the zed (E85 3.0si) and just want to see what others have gone for. So post your wheels/ wheel spec, coilover, spring setup as i'm getting low on ideas (at least original ones, CSL reps has been done to death now!...... not that there's anything wrong with them!).
Cheers guys :D

Wheels: Linea Corse LC818 8,5x19" ET34 & 10x19" ET41 with Michelin PSS 225/35-19 front and PS4S 265/35-19 rears.
Suspension: H&R lowering springs (35mm) with OEM M-Tech shocks.
Others: Pulled pins on OEM top shock mounts to get a little more negative camber. H&R lower sway bars front & rear.

When I get the chance to do a little modding again I'm thinking of getting H&R coilovers and some 18" wheels with lip. Preferably AC Schnitzer Type II or III....

wheels are 260M from the v8 M3 in o.e Ferric grey which looks bronze some light and other a dark silver. Nice and aggressive fitment , Suspension is Kw clubsport 3 Way sitting a nice and conservative 12- 15mm lower than stock z4m suspension as you can see by the nice Gap above the tyre to fender ... ( basically on their highest setting)

Looks great! What's the spec on those wheels please mate? 9j front 10j rear? Tyre sizes? I
I ask because I would love some M359s but thought 9j wouldn't fit on the front of a lowered z4 without quite a bit of stretch and I'd like to stay with 235/35 front tyres.
