Finally had time for a wash & AquaWax on the weekend, including the wheels. Have now sorted out the fitment I think, on stock suspension, no rubbing etc:

- fronts: 235/40/18 tyres, 18x8.5" ET43 + 3mm spacer = ET40
- rears: 235/40/18 tyres, 18x8.5" ET43 + 10mm spacer = ET33 (equivalent to stock 135i rear now, I believe, given they have a 10mm wider hub)

Does it actually change colour or is your camera playing tricks? ;)

Either way looks great..

Mine needs a machine polish at some stage.
