Mein Auto: 1997 M3
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.
