So what have we found out about offsets

I've got a set of BBS LM's on the M3 currently.....being replaced with RAC Wheel Monolite.

Currently on the M3, BBS Lm's

19x8.5 et32 front 245/35
19x10 et25 rear 275/30

will i be able to use these on the e90 and tuck the rear without any issues....i've seen 265's being run on 10 inch rears to compensate.

thanks

I might give Turner Motorsports a call and see what they say. Those guys have an E90 and a bunch of different wheels and I am sure they've bolted most of them up to the E90 in the way of research.

Check the wheel/tire forum, it will be a very close fit for the rears. Even more so if the car is lowered.

I have not seen 19x10 on a E90 yet. But I think they`ll fit but very tightly.

Yeah, if you plan on even driving the car, 10" is too large imo. I know it's doable, but who wants to take the chance.

Any more pics of the white M3? It looks beautifull with those wheels. Alpine white looks awesome also.
