My Ride: 2002 325i
03 M3 wheels on 02 325i

Hey!
I just got a set of 03 M3 wheels for my 02 325i.
The fronts fit fine, but the back tires rub. All stock sizes.
Rears are 255/40 18 9" wide, I believe?
What tire size should I use to fit without rubbing?
I searched the forms, but couldn't find a answer.
Please help

If the rears are actual m3 rears which I am assuming they are based on the width you gave you will more than likely have to do some modifications in order to get them to fit ie fender rolling and some other stuff. Its going to take some work. There are 50 million threads about this.

I'll keep looking, but everyone I've read isn't specific. They say, just run fronts (8") all the way around or don't do it or I did it and it works fine, but not listing their set-up. I have this set. I don't mind going a shorter tire. I just don't want to hear the rub.
If anybody has any specific details on this exact project, with photos and details, I'd be very happy. I mean, isn't that the true spirit of Christmas? To help people in need.
