Talking Custom Wheel Thread


alright so, ive been reading, and reading, and reading, and reading, and, well you get the point.
So, I've decided i want what most people call ELITE or Luxury style rims, something along the lines of "Aggressive Executive" like a HRE or 360Forged wheel...

what is the Widest wheel width allowable on the rear for an E46 M3?
and i mean THE ABSOLUTE WIDEST! 12? 13? i want to get a nice polished wheel, maybe even Brushed aluminum... Staggered fitment, becuz OFFSET IS EVERYTHING! with a super polished or chrome lip.
i bought a set of KSport Ground Kontrol Pro's for the SLAM, i want to have my fender riding flush with the tip of the wheel, or at least the bottom of the tire, 4,5,5.5 in lip on the rear wheel, i want this bimmer to look RETARDED! and i mean G35/350z rear DEEP DISH FAT LIP retarded i need to know offsets, max allowable wheel width, tires sizes, and if spacers are going to be needed.

slammed, hellaflush, no camber.

let's hear it, im open to all suggestions, oh BTW, 19" or larger, none less!
dont wanna hear about how nice you think an 18" looks STOCK or less than stock is , i could care less about price or performance, i want to kno the RAW REAL Truth.
Life without ///M, is a life Not worth living...

pure custom rims would be some you special order from any tire shop, which no matter what will be a shiny penny, and im not sure on all the fitments sizes on the m3s but i know you can get maybe and 11 under there with out having fabrication envolved..
Yep.. still crzy.... Just in a different whip!! haha

Hella flush means that you add massive camber on top of that. Even despite that, if you want to fit a huge wheel back there, camber WILL need to be added, there is just no other way. BBS LM's 19x11" are the widest I've seen when you add camber and don't have a widebody kit.

That's going to look retarded, and not in the context in which you are using it
