Stuffed some wide 18x10.5 ARC-8 wheels on some meaty 285/30/18 tires for my annual trip to the mountain roads. This setup will also be used for trackdays in the near future. Can drive it sideways all day long - zero rubbing except on extremely rare massive vertical compression on the fronts, which would rub any lowered setup. Thanks to Stance Factory for making this possible. :thumbsup:













On my way home I stopped by McLaren to finalize a tie up a few things for my old man's 575, and was floored when I saw these two unicorns in the showroom!

Nice setup. Any spacers? What is your ride height?
I actually needed a 20mm up front to clear the coilovers. Haven't ever measured my ride height though , sorry.
Just be careful if you ever decide to carry passengers in the rear that aren't scandinavian supermodels.
They don't have to be. It doesn't rub in the rear, plenty of room. And my springs are stiff enough to prevent any drastic compression back there anyways. I've had four full grown adults in the car before on my 19s which have less clearance out back - I'm not worried in the slightest.

So just to be clear, you are running net ET of 7 up front and still clearing with an 18x10.5 wheel and a 285/30 tire?

My goal has always been to squeeze that size wheel with a 295/30 size tire in the front and run a zero net ET. Based on your experience, I should be able to do so. I currently run an 18x10 with net ET of 10 and 285/35 tire and minimal rubbing.

Wow your setup looks awesome and the fact that it doesn't rub is a great asset.

How much manipulation did it take to get this? My intent is to do 10" ARC-8 square over KW v2/3. Not sure how KW clearance compares to BC. I'd want to daily my setup, but I wouldn't ride quite as low as you are.

The ARC8 fit the E39 nicely.
Is that 10.5" front and rear?

Are you running BC Coilovers?
If so, what spring rates and how do you like them?
