those are non M offsets. a tad aggressive, but def not non M. for a M you want the offsets about ET20 to et15 out back on a 9.5 wheel

Close but not correct. Stock fitment on the 18x9 rears is et26. So for the rear of an m3 you would need to be in the et30 ->et15 range.

There are e46 non M guys running these with 255s.

I used these on my e36m3.

Anyone who spends 10 mins looking in the Showroom can find how these fit on everything from audis to e36 to anything.. (obviously different bolt patterns or center bores but you can figure it out)

No spacers... for an E46 I'd recommend running a 235/35/18 (if lowered)

Should be able to do more than that. My e36 sedan has a good bit smaller fenders than the e46s and I ran 235 rears with a 10mm spacer and it was flush. So you should be able to run a 255 rear on a pretty low car e46 non M. MIGHT need to be rolled, but I really dont think so.


If anyone wants to PM me what car they have, I will find pics of these wheels on their car and let them know the tire specs and if there are any spacers, etc. I had tons of interest when there were no pics. TONS, now no bites.

If you are unsure, I will do the legwork for you so you know what you are getting into, but PM me your setup and let me know what size tires you want or fitment. If you want to stance it or something nice for daily, etc.

with a 9.5 at that offset its going to be tucked under the fender like a school bus and look ugly, you'll want et20-15 to fill out the wheel well. and match the halfway descent front fitment of et35...

AND i never said they wouldnt fit an M, i just said theyre slightly aggressive non M fitment

Oh yeah, definitely can run wider tires than that, just depends what car it's on and how low it will be but to be safe a 235/35 or 245/35 would work great in my opinion for what height the average guy has their car (non-M) at on here.

You have to remember that not everybody wants to run the lowest offset possible... I think these are the perfect balance between aggressive and practical.

Can we agree that these would look great on a non m e46 and that if you are looking for m3 wheels, there are plenty of other sets for sale that would work better?

Im lowering the price to $650 because there are other wheels in slightly newer condition for what I was asking.

I have a 2001 330i lowered with Koni Yellow with Eibach PRO-KIT. I would run 245 in the back. Charles from VMR said I need et45 but still need to roll my fender. et33 is too aggressive.

Uh.. unless your car is broken you should be able to run 245s with just a roll.. might not even have to roll them. I mean ****.. e36 fenders are smaller than yours and i have 17x8.5 et41 stocks wheels that had 245s and they didnt rub.. Granted 18" 245s are slightly wider but your fenders are a good bit bigger.

Yes, i was talking about fitting them to a M.
to fit them to a M id highly recommend some 10 or 15mm spacers...
but they will be sweet on a non M.

thats all ive been saying the whole time.

I have gotten like 43822 emails about these. I can ship them pretty much anywhere for $725 shipped and paypal'd. So whoever can PM me with MONEY to buy them, will have them. I decided to keep the car and buy a supercharger for it, so I would like to sell these to offset the cost of the kit.

Thanks
