Exclamation 359M (M3 ZCP) Wheels on E90 Fitment Thread (Lots of Pictures)

Related thread:

Thanks to ebisu8 and others for their help.

Recently got a set of OEM 359M wheels with Michelin PS2 tires. The specifications are as follows.

19x9 ET31 - 245/35/19
19x10 ET25 - 265/35/19

I currently have VMR VB3s with Hankook V12 Evo tires.

19x8.5 ET40 - 245/35/19
19x10 ET38 - 275/30/19

This thread will cover my progress in getting them to fit my E90. I know the rear tires will be a problem (265/35 is too tall). Also the ET25 rears will be too aggressive and will require fender rolling. I am dropped on Bilstein PSS9 coilovers (look at my other threads for photos on how low I am).

I test-fitted the 359Ms as they come just for fun and took the following photos so you can compare the fitment between the VB3s and the 359Ms.

The fronts fit perfectly! The rears will need some help but I believe it's do-able.

I am planning on replacing the tires with 245/35 and 275/30 Bridgestone RE-11s. I will continue to update the thread during the whole process.

If you have any questions, post them in this thread instead of PMing me so others can benefit from the information.
