Andre,

Im running superleggara III's not the one piece Superleggars that i think metal man is looking for.

Im guessing that he (metalman) is looking for the one piecers since he knows enough to ask about specific rim widths for those wheels.

you can run anywhere from a 245-275 f and a 275-295R with those widths

Im currently running the 275F 295 rears from OZ but they had to have the offsets changed to work

so your looking at 265/285 i believe

The oz's have the best clearance for BBKs out there

Do they actually fit at the rear?
Which offset?
Did you rolled the fenders?

Ok, I give up. What are superleggars? I am assuming a type of wheel, but you never can tell.

Thanks,

Mark

Metalman, I've just checked because when I sent you an email I wasn't 100% certain.

Mine are 8.5x19 and 9.5x19, running 245/35 and 275/30, wasn't troubled by the understeer people have suffered, so didn't feel the need to go up to 275s at the front; no problems at all with rubbing even when fully loaded, and clearance with the AP BBK fine, reduced unsprung weight definitely tells with the smaller sizes - not sure if that would still be the case with the larger widths front and back. Actually the spec I have is that suggested by OZ for the M5 on their website.

you shouldnt have to roll the fenders if your car is lowered, but if the rear is lowered more than about a .8" it will cause problems with 4 people in the car.
So, if you're running 245 F and 275 R and the car lowered wihout any fender gaps, will they rub without fender rolling?
