M3 220 STYLE RIMS ON A 2007 335i COUPE!!!!!

OK so I really love the 2009 M3 rims...I am thinking about getting some for my 2007 335i Coupe. I don't know much about rim specs and such. Is this an easy task? How much am I looking at for labor besides the rim cost? Will BMW swap out for me? Should I buy them from ebay and have a wheel shop put them on for me? Do you think they will rub? Any help is appreciated!! Also I am looking to buy real M3 rims and not replicas!!!!!

First off, I'm not sure if the wheel well is big enough to accommodate the 220Ms.
The 230 Style 19" available on the 335 Coupe use 225 front and 255 rear tires, the 220Ms are 245 front, 265 rear.

The 220M's are a $1,200 option on the E90/92 M3. So, I imagine that being the highest price to pay. Not sure of 3rd party sellers with OEM BMW rims.

If the first two points check out, getting the rims replaced shouldn't be too costly. I think I did my Non-RFT swap for like.... $150? (I think I had them aligned while I was at it) + a $20 to tip the guy.



I got 2 years to get my second bimmer if I wanna keep up with u

OEM M3 rims WILL NOT fit the regular coupe or sedan. the offsets are too aggressive.

these are the M3 220 rims:

these are the stock coupe rims:

the fronts will extend another half inch, which might be ok. unfortunately, your front fenders are plastic, so you cant just roll them for more clearance.

the rears however stick out 1.25" more. you would need custom fender work to get them to fit without rubbing. I'm not sure a fender roll will allow for that much space.


FYI, MSRP for the front pair is 1500, the rears are 1550, total of 3K for the set. figure another 1-2K for the proper tires, you're looking at 4-5K for the wheels and tires, plus whatever body work you'll need to do to get them to fit.

The rims will cost considerably more than $1200 - that's actually the cost over and above what the stock rims and tires cost...make sense?

I see, didn't quite think that through fully
