M3 Wheel Tire Size
 
I have ALL front M3 wheels, on a 325i pre-face sedan, and need some new rubber on them. What size do you guys recommend? Also I was thinking about getting some 15mm or so spacers on the rears. I just want the tires flush with the wheel lip, no stretching.


.....PLEASE DON'T RESPOND WITH "JUST SEARCH WAA WAA"

THANKS!

225/40/18 assuming those are OEM 8JX18 ET:47.

You might want to use a 10mm up front and a 15mm rear spacer if they are infact OEM.

Ya, BMW stamps on inside of wheel, and M Label is indented. 225/40/18 isn't the normal tire size for M3's though right? I thought since I have them on the sedan, the tire size should be different, no?

Thats why I suggested 225/40/18.

M3 has slightly taller tires, 225/45/18
