I WOULD STRONLY RECEMEND 18 INCH WHEELS, I HAVE A SET OF DTM 18INCH WHEELS ON MY CAR AND I WOULD NOT CHANGE IT FOR HTE WORLD.. I ALSO RUN A 225-35-18 INCH TIRE THAT IS REAL NICE LOOKIN ONA 8 INCH WIDE WHEELS.. ALSO IF YOU CAN NOT FIND A 18-8 INCH WHEEL KEEP INMIND THAT A OLDER 5 SERIES WHEEL HAS THE SAME OFFSET AND HUB DIAMATER.. THIS WILL BRODEN THE AMOUNT OF WHEELS CHOICES U MIGHT HAVE...
Adam, thanks very much for the advise, now old DTM alloys sound nice.... I need to hold back on the big spend and not chase Dymags.. I have another car that is the one I am supposed to be not spending too much on the M3 is for every day. I have a 911 (Carrera 2) RS lightweight with a heavily modded engine, individual throttle bodies cams, heads, titanium this etc and I am sorting out an ultra close ration box for it and so on, I'm likely to get bankrupt if I chase too many goodies. I was thinking about 8x18 BBS, I would like a wheel that visually replicates DTM from the era, any suggestions (Affordable please !)
