Im assuming you just need to know the bore of your hub, and then the bore of the wheel, then match them up when ordering a set :shrug:

Hey quick question for you guys, I need to replace my two rear tires soon, since I do alot of backroad driving theyre pretty worn down. The fronts are fine, Id say they have about 70% tread life remaining. So Im looking at two used tires to replace the rears before I sell it. My question is: Can I run a 235/45/17 in the rear or should I stick with a square set up of 225/45/17 all the way around as they are now (all the rims are 8" rims)? I found some 235's of my tires for a good price. Thanks

My Ride: just an M3, sort of
you would want 235/40R17... which if cory is not going to buy off of me, I have a set of two fuzions...

im gonna add that you got e46, so you could easily go way wider, 255/35 or so, 245/40 to be conservative.

In my limited e46 experience, they have a little understeer, so why would you wan to stack so much width in the back as a 255?

Cory, if they're E39 fitment, its easy. Contact one of these vendors and tell them u need E39 - E34 hubcentric rings. They're not cheap tho from what I've seen. However, u could get hubcentric spacers more poke your hubs are 72.3mm I believe, and E39s are 74.6mm or something like that. Can't remember th actual numbers. Don't by plastic rings, they're cheap, but they don't last, the crack and fall apart. Need metal rings.
