These are considered a non-m fitment as 17x8.5" wheels are commonly run square with 235 or 245 tires for street/track/autocross setups.

The E46 M3 is better suited for the 18" ARC-8 wheels as there are 4 sizes that work well for that car.

The 18x9.5" wheels work with 265/35/18's all around.
The 18x8.5" works with up to a 245/35/18 front
The 18x9" wheel works well with 255 or 265 tires
and the Rear 18x10" works well with 275 or 285 tires.

You can go up to a 245, maybe a 255 if you add in some camber.

245/40/17 is a good size to go with on these 8.5" wheels.

Glad to hear you're enjoying the wheels. Be sure to snap a few pictures. We don't have any 8.5" photos yet



We have these in stock now with a few more sets arriving on June 16th
