How come a mate of mine who has a 1994 m3 has 235/40/17 all round but e36 sedan m3 has 225/45/17 front and 245/40/17 rear. Is there a reason for this?

Yeah, BMW went to the staggered setup to make the lawyers happy.

Can I just puchase new wheels for my 99 that eliminate the stagger? 8" wide instead of the 7.5 & 8.5?

Yes you can get the 8in without the stagger, they will work just fine!!
