My Ride: 2002 M3 Coupe
Speedometer Recalibration

I recently purchased a 2002 M3 with CSL wheels. Tire size on rear is 265/30 ZR19. My speedometer is roughly 5mph higher than what my GPS reads at highway speed. How do I go about calibrating my speedometer to the CSL wheels?

I dont know. But I am wondering this also. I have the stock size wheels/tires but it has the "standard" +3-4 mph off reading and its just annoying. Anyone know if this can this be done with the PA Soft software?

That would be cool, but I doubt it's possible. It would be a big liability for BMW.

Hey MLife,

I am looking at a set of rims the same tyre size as yours.
M3 CSL rims 19 x 9.5 and 19 x 8.5 with 265/30/ZR19 and 235/35/ZR19

I have a 2002 M3 too.

Do they fit straight on?

Do they fowl the guards/bodywork?

I would recommend 245/35/19 and 275/30/19 tires for an M3. Whether they fit well or not will totally depend on the offsets though. We recommend 19x8.5 ET35-40 front, and 19x9.5 ET22 rear on an M3.
