    Has anyone been able to fit M3 fitment wheels on zhp?

    I have been looking at some used wheels on faceplant marketplace and most of the wheels I have found are M3 fitment. Has anyone been able to fit a low offset wheel on a non M? Should just look for non M fitment wheels?

    This is a size I have seen
    front 18x9.5 et22
    rear 18x10.5 et20

    The M3 front wheels will fit no problem. The rears just won't work...

    The rear Style 135s are 18x8.5" 50mm offset wheels so trying to slap wheels that are much wider with 20mm offset in a standard non-M car won't work without putting lots of work to do it right. jeppej's M3, pictured below, has OEM M3 wheels but he has done extensive body work to make everything work on his very unique and amazing ride. It can be done but expect to do much more work to make everything work right.









    This is the wheel spec for stock 18" Style 67 M3 wheels


    The wheel spec you posted looks like wheels to use 245/275 width tires so aftermarket wheels... they won't work "as is" if you want to mount them to any non-M car...

    Here's the link to jeppej's video for his build

    Ooooooh yeah I remember reading JeppeJ's thread on E46F back in the day. Must've been like 10 years ago! One of the, if not the OG E46 M3 sedan conversion.

    For some reason I thought jeppej went with interlagos blue because I remember him talking about it then saw that he had considered this color but did not like the more purplish hue of the color so he went for the LeMans Blue color instead. Still looks amazing how he got everything set up on his M3 sedan

    jeppej posted he did this conversion because having an M3 sedan was half the cost of registering/insuring any M3 so he did the full conversion and what an epic conversion it was! He did most of the work himself with exception of the body and paint work... totally amazing...
