will the e90 18inch m3 wheels fit 2007 e92?

They are Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 Rear (265/40/ZR18 and Front 245/40/ZR18) wheels off a 2012 M3. Will they fit a 2007 335i coupe with sport pack? thanks

Just look at what your tires are now, that's the easiest way. Anyways, they should fit alright.

Im going to say NO, because those tyre sizes are too big especially since they are Michelin PSS and 265/40/18 is wrong height ratio.Even the front can cause problems.

What are the wheel width and offset?

Even though i don't know the wheel specs im pretty sure wheels will fit, but with different tyre sizes.

No...emphatically, NO!

M3 specs are different from non-M 3-series and outside the industry standards for non-M specs.

non-M specs call for a wheel diameter within the 25-inch range.

245/40s will fit OK in front at 25.72 inches, but 265/40 size is over 26 inches at 26.35 and will crowd the rear wheel well, unless you replace your rear panels with M3 rear panels that include cutting and welding the panels into the rear pillars.

Compare those sizes to the non-M wheel diameter specs:

M3 Specs:
Front: 245/40 = 25.72 inches
Rear: 265/40 = 26.35 inches

Non-M Specs:
Front: 225/40 = 25.09 inches
Rear: 255/35 = 25.03 inches

There is almost a 2.5 percent difference between M3 and non-M fronts and over 5 percent difference between the rears, not to mention extreme rubbing in the rear.
