I'm sure you will find the fronts on a E46 M3 are 8" rims the rears are 9" assuming 18" diameters.

If using 19" rims they are 8" wide at the front 9 1/2" at the rears.

Obviusly the M3 has wider arches than the other E46's, so i guess there ain't enough room to shove a 9" wide rim in.

I could be wrong...

Someone left a note on my windscreen. It read 'Parking Fine' that was nice

ime only after the 18" as there the same dia as mine , what i need is the differences on the ywo sets the m3 e46 and the mv e46 wheel as the tyre sizes are the same . e.g rear 255/30/18 .
just a little crazy.
