Will these wheels fit on an M3?

Hey guys

A set of volks came up for sale and I wondered if they would fit an E46 M3 coupe.

Front two wheels are 18x9.5 +23 Offset
Tire size 265/35ZR18

Rear two wheels are 18x10.5 +23 Offset
Tire size 285/35ZR18

Thanks!

Sounds like those came off of an E90/E92 M3. That sizing is more aggressive than I'd recommend for your car.

The fronts are way too crazy with a 265/35/18. The rear would need a good amount of work to fit as well. Typically on an E46 M3 you'd want an 18x8.5 ET35/18x9.5 ET22 or 18x10 ET25.

Definitely agree with Kevin...way too aggressive...especially for the front...rear size is fine though!
