Do not put those on an M3, they are very nice wheels for the money indeed, but they do not fit the M3 first of all (Offest is 5x114.3 M3's is 5x120) and they wont look good, don't cheapen the M3 man I did have similar wheels on my G35 and they were very nice though (HP Evo's) i still think if your putting wheels on an M go quality or for any nice car!!

First: the wheels are 1st rate quality.
Second: the wheel swon't fit the offset is incorrect.

The idea that you have to spend $2k for a wheel is stupid, buy what you like. I have ADR's and they are top notch, maximum weight used to balance? 1.5 oz total THTA speaks for itself.

i take back my comment and didnt mean to sound like a dik in any way, i told you a million and 1 times i love your car and those wheels, i just didnt want to see someone put wheels with an incorrect size and offset onto their car !

I have ADR wheels and as for quality they are amazing, no weights are on mine at all for balancing they are perfect. ADR offsets prob wont fit an M3 though good luck!

I also have adr's and the quality is superb, It wont lessen the 'quality' or the appearance of an M in any way. Would be cool if the offset fit but doubt it.

I've seen those ADR's on a m3. Not sure what offset it was or what size though. I looked into those rims before but decided on something else. I say buy what you like because in the end it's your car and you're modding it according to your tastes, not others.

I'll chime in as well as say ADR makes a quality wheel. I've had my set for 2 years now with no problems what so ever

Hey guys, need your help here ASAP. This guy on ebay got some ADR m-sports for sale for cheap but not sure if they will fit my non M3 E46.

They are staggered 18x8.5 + 18x9.5 with off set +35mm. Seller thinks they should fit but not 100%. These are of of a M3 by the way.

Bidding ends Feb.27/05. Need answer soon. Thanks to anyone who can help.
