The tires are a bit large. You will probably have rubbing somewhere up front regardless of the spacers you use. The best thing to do would be to get rid of the tires and get 225/40-17s, 235/40-17s, or possibly 245/35-17s all around. I like the last option but I don't think anyone has tried it since that tire size is brand new to the market.

The standard spacer to use when going from an E36 fitment to the E30 M3 is a 15mm hubcentric spacer. I know BBS supplies them with wheels (they only cast for the E36/E46 and give you a spacer for the E30 M3). I think most people go with H&R for a retrofit.

I have a set of SSR competitions 17 by 8 all around and the front tire size is 225/45 and the rear is 245/40. I have an 89 m3 with h&r sport and bilstein shocks. The rims came off a e36 m3. I was wondering if 15mm spacers will work with this setup? also will the front tires fit? Or what is the best size spacers and tires to use? Thanks alot
Chris
