Staggered ZHP replicas?

Hi guys,

I'm having some trouble finding the correct wheels for my car. A few months ago I bought brand new tires because my current wheels are the exact same spec as ZHP staggered wheels, and I needed new wheels anyways. Anyways, its now time to buy my ZHP staggered wheels (Do not care about finish, just want ZHP staggered, I will be powdercoating them locally) and I can't find them anywhere!

The tires I picked up have these specs (from tirerack.com):
> 2 225/40ZR -18 Continental
> ExtremeContact DWS XL
&
> 2 255/35ZR -18 Continental
> ExtremeContact DWS


Where can I find ZHP style replicas to match this setup? Is it even possible, or am I screwed and need to buy new tires to go with my new wheels?







Cliff notes: Need ZHP wheels that will fit 255/35ZR-18 and 225/40ZR-18 tires in a staggered setup, but have no idea where to buy. Would prefer black color. Many thanks to anyone that can help me out! Do not mind buying american or canadian (have an american shipping address).

oh and if you don't care about the finish, just buy them used... i'm sure there are some for sale around here... most likely cost you less than replicas anyways

Ok so I looked at my car, the rears are kinda sunk anyways ... so if I got a 18x8 ET35 M3 for the front, I could keep 2 of the tires I bought (I guess I could ebay/CL the other two) and I could pick up 18x9 ET35 m3 replica for the rear, and pick up 2 new tires for the back?

if I try to go 18x9 ET35 rear and 18x8 ET35 front, and keep my 255/35ZR -18 tires on the front, and buy two new tires for the back to fit the 18x9 et35 rims would that work? What size tire would I be looking at to fit the 18X9 ET35 m3 reps? I'm loving the idea but don't want to roll fenders/anything crazy. My car's already slightly lowered (no idea how much, was like that when I bought it).

with those tires that you already have, you can use on those rims

18x9 with a 35 offset will fit your 255's no problem... in fact, bmw uses 255's on a 8.5 inch wide tire, so you are more than ok

You're a lifesaver! Thanks!

Now I have to decide whether to get the m3 reps or OEM ZHP's

Yeah, these wheels will definitely fit your car. We have sold many sets of these wheels to 330i owners.
They've always been pretty happy with them.

Give me a call at 714.582.3330 x 8000 if you need any additional offset or sizing help, I'd be more than happy to assist you.

Best Regards,
Ron
