Hey everyone, just registered on the site and have a question that I hope someone can answer for me. I posted this in the wheel and tire section but figure I may get more info in this section. My wife has a 2006 325i and is wanting to put a set of rims on it. I have a friend that has his old M3 wheels with brand new Nitto rubber on it (255/40 in the rear and 235/40 in the front-he thinks thats the tire sizes) and he wants to sell them to me for $700. Will these fit on her car? The car is 100% stock suspension also. Im a Subaru guy so I dont know anything about BMW's. Thanks for the help, and if anyone has any pics that would be great. John

if they are off of an M3, you will need to roll fenders and possibly max out your camber.
the offsets are too aggressive for a non m car.
the tires are also not correct, non M cars use same diameter tires front and rear, you would need 265/35/18 for the rear to match the fronts

Does the tire size front to rear matter? Just incase you know, what is the offset for the stock 325I in comparison to the m3 wheel. Thanks for the help.
