    Hi guys,

    I have been thinking of buying some bbs lm style wheels, i have found some 18'' ones. however the dealer suggested that you may need to get your arches rolled but he did say he fitted them wheels to an e36 but used the same tyre sizes all round and the rears where stretched so they didnt need to get their arches rolled.

    Is this wise to do, will it have any effect on my car? Unfortunatly i cant remember what tyre size he offered but here is the link to the site.

    thanks as always.

    arch rolling will free up a bit of extra room on the rear there is no real downsides as such, just as long as whoever is doing it knows what they are doing as it can crack the paint
    i had mine done a while back and there has been no down sides so far
    if you do have it done give the inside of the arches a good scrub to get all the dirt out and when it has been done fill up the arch with waxoyl to stop anymore dirt getting inside

    I'm sure you won't need the arches rolled to fit 18"s mate.. a guy I work with has an e36 323 coupe with 18"s and its dropped on coilovers and he didn't have to have the arches rolled..
