M3 Wheels ?
 
Hi guys looking at M3 Wheels and they say they are 7.5 inch wide and running .

2 x 225/45/17 Front
2 x 235/45/17 Rear
wide with an offset of ET41

isnt 235 a bit to wide for a 7.5 inch rim?:dunno:

would that be good offset for my E 36 Coupe?

235s should be OK... It's probably about as wide of a tire you'd want on that wheel width, but it's likely do-able. Of course, every tire make/model is a little different in the actual width measurement, so YMMV.

95's came with 17x7.5 et41 wheels and 235-40-17 tires from the factory. Should be no issues at all.

I agree! :thumbup: The factory tire spec 235-40-17. However, you can run 225-45-17 as well!

You brought back a 15 month old thread to agree? Bravo, sir!

You most likely have 17x7.5's in the front and 17x8.5in rims in the rear. The stock tire size for the car is 225/40ZR17's on the front and 245/40ZR17 on the rear. I have the Double spole II wheels (Style 39) on my 97 M3 Coupe. Besides the stock wheels that came on the M3 lightweight, the double spoke's are the lightest by a few pounds, which, in dealing with wheels on a performance car, adding one pound of weight to a wheel/tire is like adding double or more to the entire car.... slower..... Thats why I havent gone aftermarket yet, the wheels I want are very light, but also EXPENSIVE!! Hope this helps.
