I have not bin on the Hamann web page for a while. I don't know what they look like. But I did owen HM2's that a 18/8.5 wheel 225/40 in front and 255/35 in rear. The 18in wheel is really to big of a wheel for the Z3. The ride is hash and the car skips more on the road. The car shakes more and does not feel safe. You really should not go bigger than 17in. Another thing is that the 18 are very heavy and will slow the car down. For traction get a wider wheels and lower the profile tires. That will do the best as far as putting power to the ground. The Lighter the better.

Email me if you have any questions.

I saw pictures of these in their catalogue. These things look incredible? How much do you think they would run? how about the tires to go with it?

Anyone have any recommendations for wheels for my car? I have the standard 5-spoke starfish rims that came with the car and am looking for bigger wheels for better traction.
