Most days I check this thread and inwardly shudder in horror. E36XER; your beautiful example of what an E36 has the potential to be, is simply stunning.

I love your car ken, just look into cutting the innermost part of the rear fenders and roll it afterwards so you can fit a 235 back there

Thanks man I love getting good feedback. I had ordered a fender roller from Eastwood but it was back ordered to I canceled. Now I regret that. I need moar wide.


In unrelated matters, I noticed the engine has a pretty pronounced tick at idle i hope it's not bad.

I just went back and did the math... so In theory I could do a 235/40/17 et 20 and be fine.. remember that's also tucking the whole tire and almost the rim

I like the 18th. I forgot all about St.Patties. God forbid I come between someone and their beer on the holiest of Irish holidays.
