1 Series with e46 M3 Wheels

I just installed some e46 M3 wheels on my 135i. They are four front wheels, so all four of the wheels are 18x8 offset 47 (front and rear) . The M3 rear wheels are too low of an offset to fit without some work. I'm running Michelin PSS, 225/40 front and 245/35 in the rear. No rubbing on stock sport suspension.

I'm pretty happy with them. What do you guys think?

I like it. Has a nice almost retro (Way back the E46 M3) feel to it.....

Why not square?

What did you have to do to run the rears?

I like it. It looks classic BMW to me. They look like mint wheels too.

Looks good. That's exactly the setup I've been considering. I even posted about it a while back. A guy I work with has an e46 m3 Coupé and I'm surprised how similar our cars are in some ways.

Do you think you could fit 255/35 18 in the rear?

I moved the tires I had from the stock 264 wheels.

The rears fit with no problem, they are a half inch smaller then the stock wheels with a similar offset.

Gangplank There is definitely room under the fender to fit a 255/35 on the rear. But a 245 wide tire is the maximum recommendation for an 8 inch wide rim.

I've always hated those wheels. They're just not a nice design, in my opinion. They certainly look better on the E82 than they do on the E46 though.

Is your car Carbon Black?

Note he said he used four front wheels. The style 67 rears have an ET26 offset, which is way out for a 1er.

if you're using the same 18x8 offset 47 then use front 225/40r18 and rear 245/35 or 255/35r18. worry for the rebound from bumps if the suspension is aged.

they are the staggered set up so 18x8 in the front and 18x9 in the rear i believe.

So I shouldn't get this set? kinda want it steerable as i drive it to work as my daily

You'd need to make sure the rear 18x9 is 47 offset the rear offset on the orig M3 setup was et28. this will rub the wheel well.

I'm not positive on spacer needs if it was my car I'd be more comfortable no spacer 18x8.5 et45 on the rear unless flared quarters.
