Haven't posted in a while - New shoes

Some of you are gonna hate me for doing this but I was tired of the VN-lines and after 3 seasons with them on the car I thought it was time for something new. I got a deal on these that I just really couldn’t pass up and seeing as how this is probably one of the nicest wheels (IMO) ever made I had to throw them on for a while. They are authentic and for the most part in tip top shape, I’m gonna polish them up a bit when schools over.

FKs are in my garage. ECS screwed up my order and sent me the wrong ones so I’m still on PSS9s for the time being Besides that the car needs some TLC (redo the exhaust, another visit to the body shop, clean the interior, etc, etc) which I won’t be able to address until the summertime These will probably get thrown up for sale end of this season and then I’m back to something ridiculously wide.

The stance isn’t exactly where I want it but the front is staying where it is because I’m not spending a $100 to get .2mm more of a spacer and the rears are on order. My pics are sub par mainly because I have no where to shoot them and really didn’t feel like putting in the effort :dunno :rofl


19x8.5 BBS LM – (20mm spacer) ET-3
19x10 BBS LM – ET25 soon to be ET10 when the spacer comes in
Falken 452s: 235/35/19 and 265/30/19
Here it is with the LMs:

Here’s how it sat up until this weekend (I had to raise the front a bit because the rake was annoying me and I was killing tires due to camber):

actually preferred the old school rims you had before.

You're putting a 15 in the front? I think you can go 20 actually. I have a 15 right now, but I'm sure Andre rolled those front fenders, so I think you can definitely go 20.


Do you have a side profile? You're running 20mm in the rear, but it looks like I'm sticking out more than you with only 12.

I loved the Schmidts but I was done with them. 3 Seasons on a set of wheels is way to much for me. I'm a wheel whore. The Schmidts are actually on an m5 in Montreal now. I run a 20mm up front now. I could prob run a 22-25mm my front fenders are really flared. I'm saying I want to run a 15 out back and I actually flared those quarters recently so i'm sure I can do it. I don't have anything out back right now so your definitely sticking out more then me.

confused.

Going by your original post, you said you have a 20 in the rear and nothing in the front. Do you mean the other way around?

Lm's are a great design, Had them on my vert for 2 years but got tired of them as recently in my area, there are way too many cars rocking them this year! I much prefered your oldschool VN rims. Made the car look incredibly Euro, In my opinion the LM's dont suit your car to well.

I always wondered, dont you guys go through wheel bearings like oil changes ?

Using spacers on wheels puts more stress on the wheel bearings, doesnt it ?

The soul of the car has been taken away. The point was that it was distinctive, and completely different from the E39 norm. Now, not so much.

Haha. No offense bro but to me a car is just a car. It doesn't have a soul it only has some expensive ass wheels that break my pocket LOL. The schmidts were one of a kind but after 3 years they just bored me. I'll build something equally bad ass for next year. For now these will do. I don't think I've seen more then 3 non-m e39s with authentic LMs in the country. With the exception of Juliana car I've never seen any stances like ours.

Camber doesn't kill tires, Caster and Toe does.
