: The stock 15x7 wheel has a offset of 30mm
: Many run a 17x8 wheel with a 20mm offset with no problem
: The additional 1" of width = 25mm divided over the inside and outside of the wheel should make the correct offset about 17.5mm...but 20mm is close enough
: Turner emailed me and told me up to a 4mm tolerance is acceptable with the correct size tire

: : Does anyone know what the wheel offset should be for an E30 M3??
