MMR did not fit

When i ordered these. The seller guaranteed its fitment and told me i can use my factory lug nuts & center caps since they are made specifically for my car. Took it to my local performance tire shop today to get them installed and there is a gap of 10mm or so between the new wheel and the hub. Has anyone have a similar problem with their aftermarket wheel install? I can return and get a refund but i really like the way these look so is there anything i can do? Thanks

what are the wheel offsets? is there a gap between the wheel and hub because the brakes are preventing it from touching?

the offset is 35 and yes the brake is the culprit. i have sport package does that play a role here or did they simply sent me the wrong offset?

hmm are you sure they sent you 35 offset. Alot of people run 35ish offset on 335's and the clear the brakes without issue

..do they not clear front AND rear brakes?

The installer only tried the front passenger side. i will take the rear tire off myself tmrw and see if they fit. If they do then i would only have to send the two front ones back to get the right offsets. But since there is a 10mm gap can i add spacers to make them fit?

you might be able to use spacers, but you shouldn't need to do that, they *should* fit. Look on the back of the wheel, there are usually size stampings.. look for something like ET35 or some other number like ET40.

I jus checked the box and the size stamping. The ET are 25s, the receipt said 35s tho so they made a mistake while shipping. Ima contact the seller about it today. Btw what is the correct offset for the rears?

are the wheels staggered, et25 should give you more caliper clearance. make sure all the wheels are marked the same if not you may have tried a rear wheel on the front.

ET 35 shouldn't be a problem.

I'm currently running Forgestar F14's on stock brakes:
F: 18X9 ET35
R: 18X10 ET35

Actually adding a 10mm space takes it to 15mm offset. Smaller the number, the more aggressive the fitment. If you want to get closer to 35, you may need to machine the wheels down.

go to another tire shop, im willing to bet there is no problem. i think they tried to fit one wheel on one corner and gave up instead of figuring out why it didnt work. just so we can all understand better, go look on each wheel and give us the size and offset. you said you had et35 and et25, and also that they were 20x8.5 and 20x9.5. so i am assuming that the 8.5 is et35 and the 9.5 is et25. that is how they would usually come for an e9x, if you take a wheel with an offset of 35 and add a 10mm spacer you are left with an offset of 25, meaning a wheel with an offset of 25 has more room for the caliper than a higher offset wheel. so what you are saying doesnt exactly make sense to me.

which one is ET25, the front or back? an ET25 wheel will stick out 10mm further than an ET35 wheel, assuming the widths are the same. If the ET25 is the rear wheel, then you'll probably be okay.

in all actuality those offsets should/would/could fit your car. Those offsets would sit the wheels closer to the fenders. You would have about 13.6666666mm of extra space between the tire and fender. Now as to why there is a gap...it is a possiblity they sent you a 5 series (or other series) wheel instead of a 3 series. The hubs for a 5 series are biggers. I want to say the 5-series is like a 74ish and the 3-series is a 72ish...So that could play a difference also. I can barely see...but it looks like they hub size says like 6?.?

I dont think you have the right bolt pattern and probably not the right hub bore. From what I found those sizes and offsets are only available in 5x112 bolt pattern.
