Im running 16x9's all around with a 60/40mm drop. No rubbing issues excpt for the rear left when i make a hard right turn. I dont know if bump stops should be able to prevent this or I might have to roll my fender a bit.

i guess it was 12mm or so i have to go to my shop and look for the drawing's.
but it works better then i thought it would be
i only have like 5mm to the trail arm and 255 tires can be driven without any rolling on the fenders
and with the front i changed my mind and may go with z4 breaks by the way does anyone has drawings for the z4 front break disc ?

Pictures of said hub. What brakes did you use for the rear? Still has a working handbrake? Pics pics pics!!!1

For the drawings of brake discs, I vaguely remember seeing some charts and drawings on Brembos website. Go browse there, may have something. http://www.brembo.com/ENG

thats what i thought, i already made a set myself over a year ago, im going to be running 19" hartge rims, wanted to see how wide i could go on the back, so you said spacers are 12mm could you double check please?whats the offset on that rim? did you just leave the one bolt missing? 4x100 to 120x5 is impossible they overlap. im planning on threading a nut into the rim.

So wheres the pics? I think we'd all like to see pics of the hub by itself, hub installed in the trailing arm, and whole assembly with the brakes installed...

i dont post the pic. off the hubs. you see the rims are on the car and break works fine and e-break.
when the time comes and the test's are good, i might start selling theys kit's front and rear for the original break system or upgradet breaks till then i want to keep things low

for more questions pm me
