In Reply to: need help on tire size posted by ///M ike on May 16, 2001 at 17:01:48:


I have a 98 M3 with H&R Racing Springs and Bilstein Sports. I am going to get AC Schnitzer Type III 18x8.5 (36/43 offset). What tire size will fit without rolling the fenders? 235/35 all around?

Thanks for your help!


18x8.5", with 38mm offset all around. I'm running 255/35s in the rear and 225/40s in front. I had to do a slight fender roll in rear. I have a stock suspension. I will be changing the fronts to 235/40 or 245/35 next time around. I'd bet you can get away with 245s. Will your wheels have different offset front than rear? Jay
