In Reply to: Wheels and tires fitment..please help!!!! posted by Sam E30 M3 on April 26, 2002 at 08:38:47:


I am inprocess of ordering a set of wheels and tires. I want to makesure the new wheels and tires fits right. I would like to order 17 x 8.5 all around with 225/45/R17 in the front and 235/45R17 in the rear. My question is will this set up work for my E30 M3? What offset do I needs? (ET35, ET 19) Do I need any spacer to make it fit right? I currently have Bilstein sport and H&R sport springs. Thanks inadvance for you help.

DO NOT ORDER 225/45 tires...they do not fit up front on 17" rims...at least they didnt fit on my car with the smae suspension...they didnt even fit with stock susp.

235/45 will probably not fit all...do not get that...get 235/40 front and rear.

get 235/40 all around...you dont need a staggered tire size anyway unless you have major HP...even then its not really needed.

You need an overall offset in the 20's...I cant tell you what spacer to get unless you tell me what wheel you have and what offest it is.

HTH,
ADAM
