I've got my mind on a set of 17x8's with ET22 for a R53. What should I expect with poke assuming 205/40 or 215/40? Likely sitting on H&R springs. I'd love zero poke and sitting flush.

If you want zero poke you should aim for higher offsets... 35ish on an 8

To Rally and others running Rotiforms,

I'm interested in running Rotiform NUEs on my Clubman S. I currently have KW V1 coilovers and Alta rear control arms. Will I need front camber plates? Also, what tire size would you recommend for a daily driver setup? How much rubbing should I expect? I want to eliminate the wheel gap but not tuck in the tires too much.

Thank you!

No camber plates needed unless you run low offsets

205/40/17 if you want to be low 215/40/17 if you don't want to be low

you won't rub much unless you're slammed

the 30 offset should garauntee that they aren't sunken into the wheel well

Thank you Rally.

I was planning on running the +30 offset so I'll be good without the camber plate. I won't need a spacer to clear in the coilover in the front, correct?

Anything else I should be aware of?

There's no way to garauntee clearance on the coilover. It will depend on where you have your perch set and what tire you choose. I don't personally have experience with that clearance as I don't have springs or perches on my suspension.

I'm sort of in the same boat as Twiggs looking into a 17x8 wheel with a 30 offset and was curious how a 205/45/17 tire would work? I'm in an 06 R53 and will be ordering Megan coilovers in a couple of weeks, I don't plan on slamming it down or even tucking tire, mostly just above the tire. The wheels I'm considering won't be released for another month or two so I'll most likely be on my 16" stock wheels or a set of 17" s-lites til then, if the 205/45/17 would work I'd probably swap the (brand new) tires off the s-lites.

The reason I'm curious about the 205/45 is I assume it will give a little more cushion which would be pretty beneficial for my 600+ mile a week commute. I'm also taking my 2 yr old daughter into consideration since I'm sure she'd enjoy a little extra cushioning.

Thanks in advance.

Why does this need to be in two threads? It has its own thread.

Do 15x7 +44 fit/ clear 06 r53 brakes?

even if they fit, to small for stock/sport height with some fat rubber? soon to be on swifts but I don't think those drop more than the sport suspension

Have:
R56
Stock Suspension
205/50 x 16 run flats

Want:
looking at a set of: 17x7.5 ET +35
5x120
Bore: 74.1
205/40 maybe 215x40 non-run flats

Question:
4x100 -> 5x120 adapters needed to make it work with stock suspension height?

Future:
Lower 1 inch in front, 3/4 inch in rear.
Will it still work without rubbing or fender rolling and a little stretch?

Critique and opinion welcome.

Thanks.

Follow-up question:

BMW specific wheels at 17x7.5 et+35 5x120 - can I have 10-15mm machined from the hub then use the appropriate 4x100 ->5x120 adapters to get to et+35? (these are cap-less)

et+35 is the sweet spot, yes?

Thanks.
