Is that an 88 bmw 5 series? And I know I asked, but let me again. Which springs did you put in that sweet ride?

Yep. Heavily modified 87 535is. The GTV has the Alfaholic's go fast springs in the rear and Porsche Eibachs in the front.

The rear measures out at 1.75". The illusion is a) it's a low arch car and b) I ballooned the tires about a half inch to fill the wells. It makes all the difference front and rear visually.

Nice e28 btw! I have the same stance on mine as the gtv and the 356. Once I found the look I liked I put it on all the cars.

Ballooned the tires? My hood is cracked open while checking oil.

I stretched a narrow tire over a wider rim. It gives it that old school look and helps hide the wheel well gap.

Thanks!

185/70HR15 VREDESTEIN SPRINT CLASSICs on 15x7" Alfaholic's GTA Wheels. They are stretched .5" over the rims. This was done intentionally to give them that vintage balloon look.

The car is also lowered on Eibach front springs (off a Porsche) ~1.5", ~.75" rear - Alfaholic's go fast springs.

Keep in mind, the car is a 66, so low arches help fill the wells.

Will consider this setup for my 1750 Series 1, Thank you!
