I like the look and performance of wheels / tires that maximize the space available within the M3's wheel arches. That being said, I recommended the wheel sizes / offsets (and tire sizes) that will allow you to do so. My recommendation is based on my personal experience with five different sets of wheels on my M3 sedan (plus experimentation with spacers).
Just look at how perfect my recommended sizes fit on the car in this thread (note that he is using 305's in the rear. I didn't recommend that because you will surely rub. I would stick with 295/30's):
Yea I know what you mean.. I've seen j2m3's m3 I love his set up I like his stance very aggressive, I just don't want to rub so I'd love for you to recommend a perfect fit for me since you seem like a pro at this. Lol this is my first time ordering custom wheels.. I just don't want my wheels to go inwards or nor do I want any rubbing at all!! I'm afraid that a 9.5in front wheel will rub at full lock? Do you rub at all ? Let me know thanks
