Well, I am not running them, LOL, the other side still had the OEM 17s. The rears had PLENTY of clearance with the suspension and fender. The tires on there are m3 sized, 225/45 and 255/40. (Rather than 225/40 and 255/35). I may keep the m3 wheels and run those oversized tires; although that is going to slow the car a little...

...I think a manifold swap may solve that little issue though...

Wheels look great RichP. Did you just install the trunk spoiler lip (reason for blue tape)? Looks like a BMW meet

Well, at least it answers our questions on how E46 (M3) rims would look on the E90. Since the e90 has such a funky offset, I was worried that the rims would be too far IN the the car.

coco,
Yes, i JUST installed it, and it did require some betalink to install it (BMW aero kit glue). I will take some better pics this weekend of the car.

Seems like all the m3 wheels will fit, some of the more crazy sized aftermarket wheels may be an issue though. car could use some spacers up front though; wheel is tucked in a little. rear is pretty good though. The finish of the OEM 18s works well with black sapphire in person.

And they arent too shabby, cost 500 with rather new tires!

Speedo/Odometer Problems

Have you have any problems with the speedometer/odometer being inaccurate since you've changed your wheels?
