Anyone runs 19x10/11 wheels on their m3s?

Hey guys,does anyone run 19x10 front and 19x11 rear wheels on their m3s . If anyone does.please let me know how it runs as far as problems with fenders or bad gas mileage and cornering. Also what sizes of tires you guys use. Thanks in advance.

Those rears are "stance" sizes. x10 up front is done all the time with anywhere from 30-20 offset depending on what you are going for. 11's I believe RCsummers's meisters are those specs. You'll need lots of stretch and camber, cut, sealed and rolled fenders.

I'm doing 18x10+25 squared with 275/35's once I get new wheels. Camber needed, but I like my car usable and no stretch anywhere near this one personally. I live 10 mins from a race track I have to take advantage of it lol.

hi.












so yes its possible. you just need to know your offsets and do your math on how you want them to sit.

the only issues i have is rubbing at full lock in the front, and i occasionally hit lip to fender in the rear. but im very aggressive and very low.

i mount tires each and every day and if someone brought tires and wheels in like the ones pictured, i would have no problem charging them at least double normal price. that's a lot of work right there.

unless it's a show car, i guess i just dont see the point of putting completely stretched tires on a car that was purpose built to be a factory track car. beads can only seal so much and thicker (wider stance) sidewalls definitely improve traction and durability so "stanced" wheels really serve no purpose on a M3 other than to look good.

How so? an 11" rear will need camber.. fenders rolled absolutely and rears most likely cut and sealed.

I think all u need is stretch and fender roll.
I'm running 19x10s right now with 265s and slightly rolled fenders. With 20mm spacers.
I'm pretty sure I can remove the spacers and add 1" more. And be fine with maybe a 275 tire

Depends on offset, ride height and tire size. I have 9.5 with 20mm spacer, so thats technically like running almost an 11 as far as fender clearence goes. No fender work, no camber , no strectch. (other then a slight camber increase due to lowering the car). The tire clears the fender by literally a hair, but it does clear everywhere. That being said if I was to get some meisters or ccw classics in 11 (my favorite 2), I would make sure that I buy ones that wont fit unless the tire is stretched and the fenders are rolled. Thats the way to go with wheels like that. The cars above are freaking work of art.

Same reason why people modify Civics even though they are designed to be commuter cars. Just because they want to. I used to have the same setup as RC but as I got older I went down to a slightly less aggressive size. The ride and performance improved considerably.

I've seen a few M's on stance nation running that setup but I would imagine it would take a lot of effort

ehh not if you know how to do it. 245/35/18's on the front with -3.5 to -4 camber and 285/30/18 out back, with -3 to -4 camber.

but the 10.5 will only work with some suspensions. due to clearance issues behind the wheel.

Sounds like you have it all Figured out. If I was a baller I would definitely buy some nice wheels with aggressive specs and broadway static coilovers but for now my goal is bc racing and apex wheels!
