Mv3 Alloys Question

Should all sets of genuine MV3 Alloys have wider rears at 8.5 or did any sets come with 8" front and rears as standard

Cheers Sean

AFAIK genuine MV3's (Styling 193) should be staggered, if someone's offering you ones that aren't they'll likely be replicas

Use this site to reference all BMW OE wheels

MV3's
8x18 ET34 225/40/18
8.5x18 ET37 255/35/18

Or they may be selling you 2 sets of front genuine wheels.

Or could be from a 1 Series, think some of them run a non staggered setup.

Seen those ones also but it was these i was enquiring about

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Genuine-Mv...item336d203cbc

I have a friend who lives near who would go and look at them for me but
the seller wont give his address or a contact number
Have also asked for part numbers and these are nit forthcoming so i think i will give them a miss
