Real M wheels on a non-m coupe?
 
Ive searched, and found a couple of pix of a silver e46... from the looks i think it can look good but different tire sizes are going to be needed. im just curious if anyone has rocked any of the m "fitted" wheels and pulled it off nicely? Is this the only guy that has attempted? I couldnt find any other pix? from the looks the rear wheel sticks out pass the fender about 10-15mm... i know its not everyones fancy, but i plan to do some different things... hopefully

btw- if you go with oem m3 wheels on a non-m youre gonna rub!

If I recall correctly, this person sold those wheels after just a few weeks of having them on his car (probably because they rubbed on every little bump in the road).

You can run M wheels on a non-m car ONLY if you switch the rear tires to 245 instead of the stock 255 width. Otherwise you'll rub.

Looks really good IMHO

good luck lowering that car... the only set of oem m3 rims i've ever seem properly fitted had their rear hubs milled down by 10 or 15 mm.
