LTMW did few M3 conversions on 335i


I was able to fit 285/315 Falken Azenis with this setup.

265/285 setup

Just as a side note, you could go 285/295 on OEM fenders if you get a custom wheel with the perfect offset.

There was a company that made the wider fenders direct bolt on for e92 as well, but I can't recall their name. The had pics with a silver e90 and white e92 both with their fenders. They also made that overlay CSL trunk.

Because as it has been said before, doing a 285 out back on stock fenders is definitely doable, it's the front that becomes a challenge...ask me how I know, I'm trying for 245/275 PSS (more like 255/285 in other brands) with no rubbing, no modifications to the front fenders (yes, I am rolled out back).
FWIW, i'm currently running 255/40/19 PSS in the front of my E92 on stock fenders. 19x9 +30 wheel, -2.5* camber, slight rub where the fender and bumper meet. A 19x9 +33 wheel would probably be perfect.

I'm running 245/275 PSS in 18's with no fender modifications whatsoever. And honestly its not even close to the fenders.

18x8.5 et38 and 18x9.5 et35 arc8's.

245/275 with PSS is no problem. I am running it. Could probably fit a 285 in the back if the wheel offset was a little different. The front is maxed out at 245mm unless you want to change your suspension settings to fit the tire.... kind of defeats the point though if you have to change too much. I am running Morr VS8.

Yeah, it was a white e92 with e60 M5 wheels, they might've even been square.

Impressive, figured 245 was the limit without completely trashing the fender liners. That said, I wanted to try for a 9.5 up front, somewhere in the et33-35 range, but I need to measure to see if I'll clear the strut. Will probably chicken out and go 19x9 et31 like my old fronts.

Sorry for the OT...

Did you mean that correctly at 255/40-19? That would be a ridiculously tall tire.

I talked to the body shop today. They are going to make the front as wide as possible (275/285), and I'll be running somewhere over 300 on the rear. So hopefully 285/315 will be possible, but I have to get new wheels now

What are they doing to widen the front?

The way I understand it is they are making custom fenders using original ones, but that they will need to cannibalize a third one for extra plastic

So they're doing what, gluing/epoxying/whatever extra bits of plastic to the stock fender to make it wider?

Definitely take pictures and let me know how it turns out...

I'll be posting pictures as they go along. I give them money, they make my car wider. That's all I know

Yea, I need some more tire particularly in the front (flaring the rear fenders seems pretty straightforward as they are metal). Interested in any solutions for that that don't involve "full M3 body kit".

I'm also interested in fitting more meat under the front. The M3 conversion isn't flared enough to justify replacing the bumper/hood/fenders. If there was a straight up bolt on that added width, that would be a hot seller.

I don't mind replacing the fenders and front bumper to get more clearance, but the M3 stuff requires hood and headlight supports and then a lot of custom fitments with the fender liners etc... lots of work.

If there were some fenders made for the 335i that have more clearance, that would be the ticket. Or some method like Captain Insano is talking about to modify the 335 fenders.
