To an extent, slamming your BMW M2 with some clean looking aftermarket wheels is all that it ever needs. IND Distribution got the right idea, but they’ve decided to spice it up a bit. Alongside a set of JDM tuning looking aftermarket wheels, they’ve also added a few performance and visual upgrades. For starters, they went with an upgraded brake system, a set of performance coilovers and some carbon fiber goodies that now grace this beast.

This Alpine White BMW M2 started its life as a nimble and aggressive little monster. It is powered by a 3.0-liter straight-six engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology capable of delivering 370 horsepower.
Thanks to the power output and size, the M2 runs to 62mph (0-100km/h) in just 4.3 seconds – if optioned with the fast 7-speed M Dual Clutch Transmission. A near perfect weight distribution, amazing handling and gorgeous looks, all work together to lure new customers to the M division. For the most part, a few aftermarket touches is all that this vehicle needs.
For this BMW M2 build, a set of Yokohama Advan RS-DF wheels were chosen. Thanks to their extremely lightweight forged design, they represent a perfect choice for the M2. These wheels are sized 18×9.5 in the front and rear, allowing for a beefier tire that better absorbs the bumps on the road. These wheels have a very large inner barrel and brake clearance and provide just enough room for the 380mm Brembo GT brake kit which allows more stopping power and better brake performance.
As for the tires, IND Distribution went with a set of Falken tires, sized 275/35/18 on all four corners. KW contributes to the build with their famous Club Sport suspension which allows proper corner balance of the M2, improved cornering performance and a height-adjustable ride as well. Additionally, the camber plates and Fall Line Motorsports toe arms give the car a perfect alignment.
The last step in the tuning project was the addition of carbon fiber parts. First, an RKP carbon fiber roof was installed. With a carbon fiber roof, the overall weight of the vehicle is lowered while also ensuring that the center of mass stays lower to the ground as well, affording the vehicle better driving dynamics Next, an RKP carbon fiber front lip spoiler was added, followed by an RKP rear diffuser and a trunk lid spoiler, all made out of lightweight carbon fiber.
The result is a super sporty M2 ready to take on not just the track, but also the tuning shows around the world.
