M3 OEM wheels

So this guy is willing to sell me his 18" OEM M3 Wheels for $450 (for all 4), tires included. Is this a good deal?

Yep, jump on that. Keep the offset in mind, depending on what you are putting them on. If putting them on a 323 (indicated in your profile) then you will need 4 M3 fronts, due to offset.

How much would those 4 M3 fronts cost? I thoguht the fronts would fit ok, but wouldn't i just need to use a fender roller to get the rear ones to fit?

I believe the offset is too great for a fender roll. Others have tried it without success. Not sure how much 4 fronts would cost, but the set you posted was a steal for a full set.

Used 18" M3 wheels are often for sale at low prices. You will not be able to use these on your 323. Only the fronts as mentioned. Also the shawdow chrome finished if scratched can't be refinished so those will be shot. I'd suggest getting replicas in the correct offset and new if you really are set to get them. Or have another set of fronts available and only buy the fronts from this seller. BTW..they're going to move this thread to WT once admin see's it.

Couldn't using a fender roller fix the problem of the fitment in the back, or if taking them to a BMW specialtly shop work just as well to get the fitment right?

You have a 323i sedan (the Coupes are wider). If you go to the Wheel and Tire Forum section and do a search you'll see. Even with the fenders rolled it will be a very aggressive offset that doesn't clear when you have passengers in the car and or lowered. Just the dips in a road will cause clearance problems. I was thingking of doing the same thing the first month I got my car and found out. There's like one person on the forum who said he doesn't have much rubbing after rolling fenders, but that's nothing like the other accounts of damaging the fenders on onramps and the such.
