Bmw m2 competition camber Look on oem wheels

just bought some mcs 1wnr with ground control camber plates, i want to set the front camber at around -2.4

i'm still on the oem 788m wheels that i plan to run with 245/35/19 and 265/35/19 nankang ar1

do you guys have picture of your cars with camber with oem wheels and more camber than oem, if you could post picture to see what it looks like....

just let me know camber setting, tires sizes and wheels specs if not oem but i would prefer to see oem wheels with camber to see if it's look too tucked inside with around -2.4 of front camber

Thanks

No spacer. Looks like a race car and i like it

I don't like spacers and I don't like to add stuff that could mess with car dynamics just for 'looks', IMO

Hopefully this link works... I have -2.6 deg and ride height is 601mm. Stock wheel and tire size. I think it looks good from some angles and not great from others, mostly when looking at the gap from the top of the tire to fender. The gap probably wouldn’t be as obvious at stock ride height. Looks similar on 437 and 763 not sure about 788. I have considered getting some spacers to help fill it out on the street.

Aside from the looks, IMO this small camber change makes a noticeable difference on the track while still keeping it civil on the street.

437m / 788m /763m all share the same specs of :

front 19x9 et 29
rear 19x10 et 40

so any stock wheels will have the same look,

thanks for the link KHAP13, it look very ok to me, by looking at your pictures, i dont think i will need install any spacers.

Also, problem with spacer is that the tire being far more far away from the center of the car will throw away more rock resulting in more door /rear fender sandblasting

This was during the spring. I wish I had other pics to share but I'm on 2WNR and -2.5 camber F/R. If you choose to use spacers, I'd suggest Future Classic as they bolt to the hub which is a nice design.

Dimensionally they are the same, but visually there are differences with different designs. Since you will require an alignment after you change the camber, why don't you make the adjustments and see what looks good to you, then convey that to the shop during your alignment.
