What kind of car are you mounting these rims to? Ten inch rim is very wide most cars cannot get away with a 10 inch wide rim up front without a widebody kit.

it's not that most cars can't get away with them, it's that most drivers aren't good at geometry

I guess it ultimately depends on the tires you choice to mount to the rim. Many typical cars do not have enough room in the fenders to fit that wide of a wheel/tire. I'm not sure what you mean by geometry are you talking about limiting steering angle or adjusting camber? Anyway just wondering what type of car you plan to mount those wheels to and what type of tire.

225/35


225 is far to narrow for a 10 inch wide rim. I'd consider a 255 on a 10" rim dangerous.

i've got 225/45 on my 17"x7.5" hahah.

but 225 on a 10" width doesn't seem toooo crazy.

Suhpreem you gotta post pictures more often.

I have tens of thousands of pictures in my lightroom library but I'm too lazy to export, i used to post but then sneaky/koven hated on everything I did.



sway bar end links, front control upper arms, front control lower arms, sway bar bushings, valve cover gaskets, motor mounts, transmission mounts, high beams (finally), led reverse lights, led bulbs puddle lamps under my doors, led bulbs for trunk, led bulb for license plates, random emblems to see what ones i like, best ballasts of all time to replace my shitty ddm ones

not shown is new power steering pump, underdrive pulleys, 4 random sizes of tires, and some other stuff i guess

How'd you manage that? LOL.

half bmw's poor engineering and half my poor choice in ride height

people have the issue with factory right height but being lower i imagine i hit quite a bit of shit on the bottom of it, causing that mounting piece that's poorly designed to break off, so then i had my former indy 'fix' it, i didn't know the issue was this bad, he never told me.. my serpentine belt came off and he said he had to 'adjust' some stuff to get it to fit.. by adjust he meant lightly jb-welding that piece onto the pump and putting it back on

my car has been running like shit ever since, but i dont have a lift of my own, so i just dealt with it, by ear and lack of solid power steering i ordered the pump, found a GOOD indy and we did this work the other night

we pulled the pump and it literally was two pieces, not good

put a new one back on, new pulley, new belt (again.) and it runs like fucking butter now, all the power that i forgot i was missing out on for the last 3 months is now back

plus we rebuilt the front end suspension so i've got tons of power again, power steering which i missed a lot lol, and a buttery smooth suspension.. doesn't feel like a 140k mile car at all!

up next is motor mounts, tranny mounts, valve cover gaskets, injectors, and plugs

HURRY UP WlT' DA WHIP PICS.


we couldnt get the tire off the wheel so we had to saw it off, so now i have another pair of 225/35 that are supposedly going to stretch enough.. so much money wasted due to being drunk, damn!

tuesday we are spending about 12 hours on my wheels/tires, as well as doing some other body work, roundel, front lower grill replacement, hopefully have time to spray my new trunk and door handle,blahblahblajh

CF Vented Hood and CF Bootlid being prepped for paint. Also have the front bumper and cf full lip too. Pics actually a couple days old, check up on the shop today and they have all three painted, just need a final color sand and finish.

I look how you wanna look, I fuck like you wanna fuck, I am smart, capable and most importantly, I am free in all the ways you are not.
