Will the 330ic spare fit the 2002 M3's? Not sure about you guys,

but I hate running around without a spare and jack in my trunk. Forget that mobility kit or roadside service, bottom line is that if you get stranded in a remote area, your $%CKed!

I have already done some research and found a titanium race jack used by some race teams...only weighs 15 lbs! Down side is the cost is over $800!

but I wanted to buy a universal spare I can use on my M3 that will clear the brakes for both front/rear. Any ideas or suggestions?

I'm sure many other M3 owners are wondering the same thing.

later,
rick

Aluminum jack....

30lbs only $300. Double the weight, but 30lbs is still lighter than the stock wheel and jack.

Can a 17" wheel clear the m3 caliper? When I had to put my spare it looked pretty tight, so my guess would be that it probably wouldn't.

But I kind of remember somebody saying the space saver spare from a Porsche would work?

The stock 17 330 wheel should work with a spacer to fit over the brakes. Maybe 5 mm? Just carry the spacer around with you in the car. It may work.
