...there's almost nothing, unfortunately. The M Coupe/Roadster has an unusual offset in back, and there aren't a lot of aftermarket wheels in 7.5 inch width for the front either. It's always best to be legal, and stock class rules do say exact diameter and width, +/- 1/4" offset.

Your best bet is to either get a used or remanufactured set of factory wheels (try bimmer.org classifieds or eBay) or get a nice set of aftermarket wheels for the street and use your OEM wheels for autox.

The only other option would be to go custom, but for that price you might be able to buy a second car just for autox! My new old '93 MR2 for example can use stock legal $75 12lb rims from a Mazda Millenia in the front and 10lb SSR Comps in the back:)

What wheels (other than OEM) are available that will comply with the SCCA stock class rules for the M coupe/roadster. I was hoping to use SSR Comps but they come in 17x8.5 and 17x9.5.... Does your local SCCA stick to the strictest interpretation of this rule?
