M3 GTS wheels versus ZCP

I was on turner motorsports website and they sell both the zcp wheels and the GTS (fire orange m3 coupe) wheels. What is the difference between the wheels besides the color? Are the GTS wheels merely a black version of the ZCP?

Color is the only difference, but the M3 GTS runs wider tires 255-35 and 285-30 instead of 245-35 and 265-35 like ZCP !

I bought a set of GTS wheels from Turner , love them !!

Yes, the GTS wheel is a black version of the ZCP wheel.

On the turner website they list the recommended tire size (for the GTS rims) as the same as the standard zcp and the 220 19", I have 220's right now, could I use my current tires on the GTS rims?

Yes, GTS and ZCP wheels have the same widths, front and rear, and ZCP-equipped cars come with 245/35 and 265/35 tires.

You definitely need a significantly wider rear tire! Perhaps something like a 305

Rolling the fenders? There is no fender to roll on the e92 M3 - are you "pulling" the fenders? Also, with the correct wheel offset you can easily fit a 305 in the rear without rubbing on the fender liner or hitting the rear damper.

Does that fitment size rub at all? Are you lowered? Any pics of the wheels so I can see how 255 / 275 looks?

Thanks in advance!

Also, why are they so cheap? Hre p40's can set you back $4000 or so.

How does the GTS fit them without rubbing? Are there differences in the fenders?
