    As a PSM owner I am trying to find out if you have issues with the factory paint job. There are several spot where they dripped paint. Also it seems like there's no such thing as a small scratch. And marks sticks out like crazy. And never buffs out. After my wife bumped into another car I got a new front piece the shop did a great job matching the paint. Just curious if you have these problems.

    Quote by Dousail2: "I believe the best offset for a 9 inch wheel would be 48mm. But you have to go custom because everyone is building std sizes for the BMW's. I was seriously considering 20"x10" with 60mm offset and 295/30/20. You have really dropped the diameter down by going with an 18'' rim. But they look great! Thanks for the info."


    I was looking for cheap rims, which leads to the old saying beggars can't be choosers! They are strictly for my race tires and helps with effectively raising my gear ratio while running on the track. Actually I looked it up and the rims are 18x8.5, so I am squeezing the tire onto that rim. If I had a little more offset like you mentioned, I believe that I would have no problems with that tire rubbing!

    Thanks again for the comments!

    Cheers,

    The Rims are 18X9 with a 35mm offset. The tires in the picture are Hoosiers 295/30/18's. I get a little bit of rub when I am in a hard cornering situation such as autocross. Let me know if you have any other questions!

    Cheers,
    JJ
