Will it have a similar stance to the E92 in these pics?

The car in those photos was using an 18x10" ET25 in the front but there are other factors that are making the wheel/tire poke out more than it normally would on a correctly fitted car and the fitment on it is not recommended by us.
  1. It is equipped with KW V3 coilovers and the wheel/tire was hitting the spring before fully seating onto the hub making it look as if the wheel is poking more than it actually should be.
  2. It is also equipped with a 275/40/18 Toyo R888 tire that is too tall of a fitment for the front of an E9x M3. This appears bulged out on the 18x10" ET25 making the wheel/tire setup again look as if it has more poke than it actually should.
  3. A 10mm spacer was also stuck on the rear hubs making the 18x11" rear wheel have an effective offset of ET15!
The set up on this car was purely a test fitment to get some photos of the wheels out there for you guys.




This photo gives you a better idea of how 18x9.5" ET22 and 18x10.5" ET27 looks on E9x M3's. A much better fitting wheel/tire setup.



Another option is to use the 18x10" ET25 in the front with either a 275/35/18 tire and an 18x11" ET25 in the rear with a 295/30/18 tire. This is the fitment we suggest for E9x M3 owners looking for maximum width. Below is a picture of how that fitment would look.
