stock ones wont fit as mentioned above due to the offset. Correct me if i'm wrong but I believe the sponsors such as modbargains sell m3 replicas? i know i got my m6 reps from them.

You'd have to run four M3 front wheels to make em work. You could make the backs fit with some fender pulling and some stretched tires, however. Keep your eyes peeled in the classifieds, people are selling these wheels all the time.

I'm running 4 original M3 wheels on my coupe. (rear offset is 26)
225/18R40 on the front
255/18R35 on the back

No issues whatsoever on the front.
When I had Pilot Sport on the back, it rubbed every time the suspension was pushed hard on a bump and such.
Recently changed them to the Potenza RE050A, which have much rounder shoulders, it didn't rub a single time since then. Haven't tried carrying people in the back since then, though.
But it'll be just fine, even with people in the back, as soon as I roll my fenders a bit.

No, the 20et is too aggressive already and a spacer would push the wheel out even further.

The set and I run original e46 m3 wheels on my 325ci well use to in the summer the front are perfect but the back would rub if i had someone in the back or hit a bump or turned going over like >25mph their just too wide in the back I will either roll my fenders or get my local body shop to bubble them up a bit like the m3 which I was quoted 300 per fender.
