anyone with M3 wheels handy take a measurement?

I need to know how deep the lug holes are when measuring from the inside (hub mounting surface).. to the point where the bevel of the lug bolt would start.

Thanks in advance-

Keith

On my spare wheel (style 44) there is roughly 14mm of material from the bottom of the Lug taper to the back face of the hub.

On another wheel at my house, and advant racing rim for a freinds car there is roughly 5-6mm.

I assume it is safe to say that I can take 8-9mm off the back of the OEM 44 and still have a safe wheel.

I NEED to know how much material there is on the 19" rear EVOL as well as the 19" rear CSL wheel. If 8-9mm can be removed from them, we would have an offset of 35-36mm which will fit on a NON M 3 series.

I have a machinest lined up and everything. He will do the job for 50.00.

If someone could provide the info, it would greatly be appreciated. I know, i know.. M3 guys dont want the Non M guys to have the nice wheels... but if I have to buy the wheels to find out how much material there is.. I will go into business SELLING them.... instead of just being the guy who was able to do it. Immagine that.. ever 3er in the world with M wheels....
