My Ride: E46 competition pack
Just picked up an e36 m3

Had my eye out for one, scooped up this Dakar yellow 4 door m3!

I'm pretty happy with it, can't complain

Question though , would a 18x8 t35 all around fit on stock suspension ?

Tires on the rims I'm looking at are 225/40 , 235/40

Great find man! The yellow is nice.

As for the wheels, yes they will fit. I had almost the exact same setup (18x8.5 rear though) on my E36 a while back and they fit with no problems.

Thanks guys , car seems pretty mint for the mileage , can't complain sense I got it off an heads up trade

Ya I was thinking about picking up these 18s.. I just read a lot of people stay on 17s

So I'm super indecisive right now, spend some quick cash and grab these used rims and tires

Or save and buy some rotiforms , hmmm

Here's the rims I might grab , lemme kno what you all think

Most people recommend staying on 17"s because their lighter and you don't have to roll your fenders. I liked my 18"s but they were kinda heavy and it effected the steering response. I switched back to 17"s and it made a big difference IMO. In some cases, you need to roll your fenders with 18's . Those M-Parallels are nice though.
