I reckon you are know running et3. Bear in mind that E36 wheels are Et36 and require spacers to fit. ET47 would mean even more wheel going towards uprights which would not fit. You may find that certain wheels with offset of ET10 will fit. A lot depends on the rim design, Revolution and Compomotive both make wheels with lots of space for big brakes, simply because most if these wheels are used for motorosport.


I added a Brembo Big Brake kit to my 1990 e30 M3. I have 17" OZ wheels that have an offset of 22 in the front. To get these rims to clear the calipers, I needed to add a 25mm Hubcentric spacer. Now they fit. What is my effective offset +47 (22+25) or -3 (22-25)? I am just trying to determine what I would need to fit front wheels without spacers. Thanks in advance JOE
