OEM M3 Wheels on a 00 Vert

I know people buy 4 18" M3 fronts for the sedan and coupe, but do I need to do that for the vert as well?

Thanks

Wheel offsets are the same for coupes and verts. You can actually throw staggered fitment wheels on your car, but you may have to get spacers for the rears.

Unless you have an M3 and you're wanting to run a high offset wheel (e.g., 40), you do not need spacers for the rears. Also, M3 rear wheels have too aggressive of an offset for non-M e46's and spacers will do nothing to help this (in it exacerbates the issues).

Wait, Nevermind, I was thinking of the front offset. I'm retarded.
