You forgot to mention the heavily trimmed arches I've always loved your wheels/stance

I was looking at running 16's - prob 16x8 fr, 16x9 rear...how would you go about preventing the undercarriage from being so low? Surely the small change of 215 wouldn't be enough.....do you think would 205/50 or 215/50 look too 'fat'..?

yah they'll probably look too fat. I'd stick with 205/45 at the very most. Ryephile runs 205/40 without any problems.

16x9.5 et20 would be perfect.

My offset (et15) would be crazy with 9.5s, if they would even work. Regarding 16s, I agree. I wouldn't want to be much lower for daily driving and I still have some gap up front. When I take the bottom two locking rings off my front M7s (probably for H20) I think I'll be able to get rid of the front gap.

But at this point I'm just rambling, so I digress.

You gotta be careful with the locking rings....that's exactly what I did with mine and it tore apart the CV boot which has caused a major pain That pic you sent me of your coils shows that its about as close as mine was when it tore the boot open

Ya as I was telling drew via pm, the cv boots in the front are really close to the bottom of the front struts.

So we'll see. But 9.5" et20 is cash money.

Yah, well I took out the perch and within one day of driving, the boot was already torn all the way open.....

Actually with the offsets, a 9.5 et20 would poke an additional .05" than a 9 et15. The backside would then extend almost a .5".

The backsides of a 9 et25 and 9.5 et20 are the same - the 9.5 would poke the additional .5"
