My Ride: 325i, GULF E30M3!!!
245/45/16 on 16X8.5 rim ET19?>>>

This would be on a 325Ci with E46 M3 suspension (shocks/struts) *with the strut hats swapped*.

Planning on Victoracers for autocross and light track use.

Here's my guess:

stock ET 17X8=41
.5" wider rim = 12.5mm
12.5mm/2= 7.25mm

new offset should be 33.75

33.75-19= 14.75mm

Using this combo (from an E30 M3) would have my wheels sticking *out* just over an extra half inch. With the neg camber I'm getting - ~3degrees front - I don;t think this should be an issue.

Is this math/calculation right?


If you think, or heard, or are guessing...thanks, but I'm asking the experts. Sorry to sound harsh.
