205 40 tire's................stretch like stretch arm strong or what? seems like a hell of a small tire for a 9 inch wide rim?

Anyone?

so I found a Sedan with the rims I would like to run. Still don't know what it takes to make this happen.

But God Damn the M3 in the picture look's sick, with those rims.

definitely roll the fenders. Had to even roll mine a bit to make the OEM DSII fit after the car was lowered.

that black one you posted has four REAR wheels. his front/rears are all the 17x9 ET8. I was just going to post that picture. As mentioned above, run a 205/40/R17. You'll definitely have to roll your fenders. It also depends how low you are or plan to go. My old E36 was very low, and my rears were 17x9 ET26 (with 205/40) and I had a minor rear roll, and it rubbed the odd time. Your wheels will be 18mm more aggressive than my old wheels, so you'll definitely need a pretty aggressive roll. Good luck, and post pics when it's all together!

I Just noticed when you had mentioned about the 17x9 all the way around. I think your right. I am not sure if I will pursue this setup but am contemplating a few different setups. This one is my favorite but I don't want to run the 9 inch rim in the front. Just the stock 7.5 inch with a spacer for the front and the 9 inch in the rear. So obviously I have to roll the fenders or raise my car up have them stick out past the fender. What kind of spacers you think I should run on the setup that I mentioned .

Yea man the blacks ones all 9's. If you run the 7.5's upfront and 9's in the rear, I'd run at least a 20mm-25mm spacer. It may just look weird if you don't because you'll have wild stance in the rear, and really sunken in front wheels.

Great information sounds like you got experience. I appreciate the input bro.

I'd go at least 30mm bolt-on spacers on the front, even with that it'll still be WAY more sunken in than the rears. If it were me I'd probably stack another 10-15mm on top of the 30mm. Yes, it will be THAT uneven.
