The new 17x8.5" ET20 wheel can even clear a Brembo or Stoptech 355mm kit on the E9X M3, so they could even be light weight winter wheels for someone with a BBK.

There's a lot of different uses for them

Let me know how you would use them, and I could provide a better wheel/tire recommendation for that application.

Is 355mm the largest brakes that can be used with the 17's or will they fit a 370?
