maybe the fact that he is running a tire that is not as wide as the wheel so that it doesn't rub on the fender in the back!!!

Why are you running hydrogen in your summer rim setup (damn costco/price club shoppers!)?!

Isn't that a PITA?! You can't refill it with regular air at the gas pumps if you ever want to!

The valvestem caps.... anytime you see GREEN valve caps, its to symbolize hydrogen! And i believe costco/price club are the only places that fill all their tires with hydrogen. Apperently the hydrogen doesn't fluxuate psi as much.... i still like my regular air!

looking good.

rule of thumbs of being a Rissotto lover:
1) dish or no dish, you gotta poke
2) Stretch is an all around thing, you can't stretch the rear and no front
3) your tires ain't rubbing the the fenders, that ain't euro son!

seriously thou, they look good, but needs more poke.

Stretched rubber scares me!!

Condoms break easier when stretched, why wouldn't tires?!

I dunno... i like my hard cornering, and it would freak me out having stretched rubber cause i would just listen when making turns for a harsh metal scraping sound!

Thanks for the feedback

1. I agree.. The funny thing is, When I posted this, I was like wtf. Im gonna need spacers. But when I went outside I didn't even notice, I think there is something wrong with the camera.. In either case, it could be either spacers or coilovers. With coilovers I could achieve a super low look with this setup.

2. I went with 215/45 all around 17x8 and 17x9... There was nothing smaller for the front.

3. I know... Its funny, on www.bmw-syndikat.de almost all e36 have 10" wheels in the back. The problem is, my car wouldn't move with so much weight in the back.
