I already run 19/8-19/9 (Hartge)on my Ci so there is no way that I am going to run an 18" on the M3. As far as "Street" wheels go I really love the clean look of the 19" M3 wheel. No as a Show wheel/Nicer Street wheel I am going to run 20" wheels. Yes they will fit, I have only found Pirelli that makes a tire for it in the size that I need. The size is 235/35/20 I got this from the stock tire being 225/45/18 and 225/40/19 so a 225/35/20 or a 235/35/20 should work. As far as the rear I am still working on a size for that. I think a 275/30/20 or a 265/30/20 should work I am still checking and will have to wait till the car gets here to see if the offset is the same as the Ci or if it is different, I have heard that the offset for the front is not the same and that if you use e46 M3 wheels on a Ci it will rub the front strut.
