    --- what tyre sizes do you want to run on 11J rears??

    --- what offset are the wheels?


    my personal opinon, FAR to wide front and rear.


    Goodbye M3, you served me well.

        I doubt that you can run these without major work on the fender lips. So what tyre sizes do you want to fit?

        If you haven't got the wheels already I would get 8.5 front and 10 rear.
        215/40/17 front and 245/35/17 rear.

        I also think with 11J rear you will run out of room INSIDE the wheel housing towards the trunk

          I ran 17x8 et 20 rims with 215 45s front, 17x9 et 20 rims with 235 40s in the rear. Eibach springs....rears rubbed when people were in the rear seats at intersection bumps and at quick acceleration. The fronts rubbed when full turns were made..
          I would think 11s with your off set would be a rubber eating set up even with an allowable strech. But hell Ive seen all but bike tires put on 10 -11 inch rims.

            possible ? Yes (with major stretch and work on fenders / quarters)
            sensible ? No (get 8.5 and 9.5 or 10 with ET13-ET15 and it will look a lot better)

                  I finally can use this?




                  Of course if just cutting the fenders off and putting larger flares on anything is possible. Like my darkest side favorites E30 V8 project cars.

                    i used to have a set of acs in this size that i test fit, no where near possible without major fender work, (granted the offsets were lower,) but still, no where near possible fitting an 11 rear without major fender work, the wheel poked out past the fender a good 2''.
