Style 260M fitted to the touring....

Said I would take a pic of the style 260M fitted if I put them on, well here they are, these are still wearing the M3 Pilot Sport tyres which are 245/40 and 265/40, funnily enough the front is not a problem at all, however the back rubs slightly. So I will put proper size tyres on.

I should add that there is a set of BBS CH 19" rims and a set of Falken FK452 tyres in the back too, which is not helping the rubbing.
I have a set of 225/40 and 255/35 tyres next week, this will sort it out a treat, don't think I will need the arches rolling at all with those tyres fitted.
Having said that, at the moment the ride is sublime, so I may roll the arches and keep the oversized tyres on the car. Speedo is now bang on the money too with the incorrect tyres on there.

I bought them from Ebay.co.uk

I guess a lot of people don't realise they fit the E90 and E91 no problem at all, and think they only fit the M3, so they are not really in demand, M3 owners who have them don't want more and those with 19's aren't going to buy them either.

I paid 500 delivered for them with the tyres and sold the tyres for 520, so didn't actually pay anything for the rims, but did have to put some Falken FK452's on for 360 fitted.

Nice, but those tyres look fat.

Don't really have any more with those wheels on it, and the car is now gone.

Love the look of these rims.

Are they reps ? If so, which vendor did you buy them from on ebay.

Those are OEM 18" M3 wheels if I'm not mistaken.

Did it rub with the correct aspect ratio tires?

No, not at all, did at the rear slightly with the oversized M3 tyres on though.

My experience w/ these wheels is slightly different from the OPs

Namely, my e90 (with sport suspension) rubbed liked a bitch in the rear with the OEM 265/40's - switching to 265/35's made things a bit more tolerable but there was still the occassional rub on high speed dips - a slight fender roll cured that, though.

I get tons of compliments on these wheels.

You need to put 255/35's on these so they are the same as the regular E90 18" tyres.

No problem at all then for those that don't want to roll their fenders.

Hey Bro!

May I ask did you change the wheel cap?

I wanna change it to a CF one but likely there is no fit size for our 260M wheel!

Please advise!

Hello GizzE sorry I have a question, the wheels style 260M you have installed in your BMW 320 TOURING Msport are 17-inch or 18?
Hello and thank you

They were originals, I paid 500 with tyres and sold the tyres for 400.
This was when the M3 had not been out long and new cars were being delayed because BMW ran out of 19" wheels, so many bought with 18s and swapped when the 19s were available.

Bit of a bargain.
