Stanceworks featured this amazing BMW E28 by Jeremy Whittle. You might have missed the full feature. He found a set of old HRE 501 and had them fully restored to their original glory. The result is 17x10 configuration front and rear. Definitely can not argue with the beauty of these classic machines along side these classic HRE's.

I don't believe he had them restored. I believe he restored them himself, fully by hand.

I stand corrected, Jeremy obviously spent many hours on restoring the classic HRE's and his E28.

According to the Stanceworks article, they are square 1710 ET37

Thanks for putting this up, and the kind words guys, it is appreciated!

Just a little confusion on the refinishing, no worries! I hand refinished them myself, no power tools or anything of the like, ended up taking around 60+ hours, but it was worth it. Gotta make do somehow on a limited budget, being a full time college student and still working full time as well :) The wheels themselves are ET 35, but I am running 36mm adapters, so the final offset is 17x10 ET -1 all around.

Jorge,

You can run a bit more aggressive on the e24 than an e28, so don't be afraid to go more aggressive than that, or you could get away with running less stretch. I do have quite a bit of inner clearance out back, but the front is credit card clearance to the strut.

I am strongly considering it although my car likely wouldn't be there. But that's not what is important anyways.

My jaw drops every time i run into pictures of this car, but I saw this at C&O when it was at that one high school. I was literally in shock the way this thing looks in person. It was so weird hearing the sound of a 1jz, but i loved every bit of it. The sound of that turbo spooling while slowly moving through the crowd of people was absolutely intimidating.
You should come to the next one on the 5th! we need more stanceworks love at those meets!

I'm not low yet either, but my car is still admired by all the open minded people there!
I hope to see you there! I'll be driving the black e30 cabrio ;)

Appreciated man! That is one of the cooler compliments I have gotten on the car, as I don't get to hear about it that often from those who have seen it in person, thank you. I believe Ryan and I (Calypso m30 e30) are going to be going to C&O this month, as well as a couple of our other buddies. Make sure to come up and say hi, you as well Nick!

Love the car and everything about it, this car is one of the reasons i bought an e28 the day before yesterday.
Going to pick it up today yaaay!

We dont have a lot of these e28's over here and thats another reason why i got it.

Anyway, just want to say i appreciate everything about the car and congratulations on a job well done!
