Post Wheel Offset and Stance Picture Index

So it's obvious that many users (including myself) ask for help on offsets and bmw's. There is no sticky thread where people can get advice and suggestions from others. What may be equally as helpful is seeing pictures of those wheel and offset specs. This thread is the start to it all.

Essentially, this thread will be used as an index/glossary/lookup containing wheel information and photos of beemers. Below you you will see a list of wheel sizes by diameter and width. Within each section will be hotlinks to other posts in this thread grouped by Offset. See below for a scenario:

If you want to know what an 18x8.5 et35 looks like you can look in the list and click on any links you find in the "18x8.5" section listed as "et35" to be taken to those posts. Boom, done!

NOTE: This thread is NOT for making comments or asking wheel/offset/tire questions. If you need help with anything along those lines, please post elsewhere

The more people that contribute, the more this thread will grow and be useful. Even if your same specs have been posted for another user's car or you're just running steelies that are spaced out, post anyway. The more the merrier!

If you'd like to contribute, please use the Template below. I will modify the glossary as often as possible with a hotlink to your post for others to view. Also, PLEASE double check your specs are correct and contain no typos before submitting. That will help prevent incorrect hotlinks after I add your post to the index. Thank you!

Template: (replace the italicized text with your information)
Front: WheelDiameter x WheelWidth etFinalOffset TireSpecs
Rear: WheelDiameter x WheelWidth etFinalOffset TireSpecs
Fenders Rolled: Yes/No
Fenders Pulled: Yes/No

(Then please include pictures of your car at good angles, side-shots may not be the most helpful. Close-ups of just the fender and wheel or also distant shots showing the car as a whole may work better.)

Front: 18x8.5 et30 215/40/18
Rear: 18x9.5 et30 225/40/18
Fenders Rolled: Yes
Fenders Pulled: Yes
(images would then be posted here under the specs)

Let's make this work and thanks to everyone for helping out
