M3 Wheels on 335i?

A friend ofmine just traded in his M3 for 650I and he has a extra set of wheels I think they are 8.5 amd 9.5 19s. I would like to put them on the 335i if they fit (correct tire size?). He sent me this oic of a similar wheel.

i asked this question yesterday and somebody told me the M3 wheels wont fit on a 335 but i can't see that being possible...maybe if you put spacers on they will fit. not i'm going to have to buy the OEM CSL Replicas if they really don't fit

The rears simply won't fit. The offset is too positive (spacers increase positive offset) and they will rub a lot, unless you roll the rear fenders big time.

The fronts will fit. Some people put fronts all round for a square setup.

I've read a very long thread on this topic. First of all, if those are OEM 359s which they appear to be, they are 19x9 and 19x10, front and rear respectively. The people that ran 275/30R19 on the rear on sedans had rub on the outer edge of the tire. The thread made the point that coupes did better there. On the fronts, people that had 335is and ran 235/35R19s had rub happen between the outer tire circumference and the oil cooler grill within the wheel well. People that had an E90 328 didn't have the cooler grill and thus didn't get the rub. Back to the rears, people that went a skosh smaller at 265/30R19 did not have rub. That said, the 10" rear width really wants the 275 width instead of 265. Another parameter to consider is the tire brand and line itself. Spacers doesn't really help and i would agrue would further hinder the rear quarter panel lip rub. Some people had the rear wheel well lip rolled. I have no direct experience so consider the source of this advice. I will attempt to find the thread and post back in here for you. I was strongly considering going to 19s but held off and stuck with my OEM 18" 193s and just got the michelin pilot super sports for $1000. My reasoning was that the sidewall height was already pretty thin and going to 19" and not getting much bigger diameter (25.5" vs 25.0") wasn't worth it. Since then, i nailed a curb with a rear wheel and paid for it to be repaired ($125). You are fortunate to get a set of 359s and hopefully don't have curb rash. The turn key cost for new 359 and appropriate rubber is on the order of $3500. Yes there are cheap tires out there but why would you do that if you laid $2000 out for the wheels alone.

All that said, the 359 wheels are super cool looking and I druel when i see an M3 with them. iI'll go get the thread for you.

To verify if they are 359's, compare to these part numbers:
front BMW 36-11-2-284-055
rear BMW 36-11-2-284-060

Look on inside of wheel for the part number. best of luck

Here is the thread. I skimmed through it and i might have not quoted correct tire size for fronts but i think i got the rear tire specs right. Its a long read but you don't want to misspend $ for the wrong tires. Hopefully, your friend sold you some 359s. Good luck.

If they are OEM BMW wheels, the offset of the fronts is 47 (see the IS47?), and the rears is 27 (you evidently didn't take pics of the rears.) The standard offset for the E9x is 34 front, 37 rear IIRC. Because of that, the offset of 27mm for the rears means they will be pushed 10mm to the outside (as if you had a 10 mm spacer). The 9.5 width is already 1" or 25.4mm wider than the sport package 8.5" wheels, so that's a total of (10+25.4/2) 22.7 mm (almost 1") closer to the fender. It's gonna rub, nothing you can do. (At least if my understanding of offset is correct.) Think about your current set (hopefully you have sport package): would putting a 22.7mm spacer cause your tires to rub? On my 335d, it would.

Rears are 341s

You are correct I took two pics of the fronts. The rears read RC341 - IS27. They look to be 15/16 out from the stock wheels. By setting a strait edge across the rims and hooking a tape measure on the mounting face I read 3 1/8" on the stock wheels and 4 1/16 341s.

Those are the stock coupe sport package wheels (Style 189, I believe, my son has them on his 335i). You should be able to oversize to 265 with no problems. Many people are taking the fronts from 225 to 235, too.

Why tire brand matters is not all 2XX-1x-3x tires are the same physical size. You actually have to measure a brand that fits against what ever you actually choose to use. Some can vary over an inch in width. Tire rack has the charts you need for this.

Overall you are in most cases better off with knock-off 'sthat have the correct backspacing.
