The rear height is perfect with only one finger gap. The front looks like a lifted truck.

It was already dark when the guys at the shop mounted them on the car, but they do look spectacular, definitely worth the wait. I'm very pleased with the width and offsets I chose, the rears are perfect at 10.5J ET 20. I was abit worried the rears might rub when they first mounted them, but they're fine. The 285/30/20 tire looks slightly stretched, but there's really no room for a wider tire with my setup - I'm lowered 30mm on Hartge springs.

I'll try to get some decent photos soon, but if I can trust the weather forecast, we've got mostly rain coming in the next 10 days or so
I have 3 good friends of mine from Sofia, Bulgaria. 2 live in Vegas, and one moved back to Bulgaria last year. Off topic, but just thought I'd mention.

Sorry to bother you mate, but what offset did you use for your front and rear 20x10.5 all round setup?

Something looks off with these. Like either the offset is way off and/or the tires are the wrong size.

I stayed with 19s but went to a lighter wheels. The car came with almost new S0-4s on the front and needed rear tires so I just reused the front tires and replaced with matching S0-4s in the rear. All tires are the stock size. The car already has H&R springs on as well.

Apex Racing Arc 8s in 19x9.5 and 19x10.5. Stock Styles 166 weight in at about 29.25lbs. each. These are 20.5 in the front and 22 in the rear. Quite a bit of rotational mass removed and they look great! My last 2 white vehicles I did the darker wheel so I wanted to try something different so went with Hyper silver. Came out nice and looks factory.


Here are some photos with my son's 1994 M Technic coupe with the original BBS RC041s on it.

I really really like those ARC-8s. Seems like they're getting pretty popular, but I like each set I see more and more.

Very popular on the e46 and e90 M3s for a few years. We have a set for my e46 M3 race car and they are light and take all the abuse we give them with zero issues.
