      e32 fitment represent. I'll probably need to camber like you did to get mine to fit properly once I'm dropped.

      In the past year or so this forum has gone way down hill-- this new bashing is expected. Have fun, be excited about your new wheels! How many times have you seen a write-up in pvw or anywhere it counts on the cars from the d!ck people who are posting hate?

      Seriously. The rears are thick. I don't think an Eastwood roller would do anything.

      Yea I found out today when I got mad I was shredding up my brand new tires, so a hammer fixed it. The hammer actually did a good job.

      Washers to the beam or camber/drop plates is the only thing I know of to get massive camber. Or a syncro rear end.

      Look up Banchwerks drop plates, they'll fit the bill.
