Even if they fit, I dont think the wheels go well with the car.

They would fit, they are very fine wheels, but after looking at the M3 for a extensive amount of time, i think the lines of the car is too busy for the wheels.

How do you know that they will fit? Do you have specs on the M3 wheels? What is the offset? How wide are the front/rear wheels? Just curios about what the aftermarket alternatives will be...

I do not like it; the 5 spoke doesnt`t look that good on any 3 er including the new M3. Multi spokes do look way better, the M5 rim could do a nice job also.
IMO the M6 rim should stay where it belongs.................on the M6 that is...

I want the M3 as original as it can be................................so no aftermarket what so ever, for me that is.........

if you think M6 rims on a 3 looks bad your smoking crack they look great...so do the M5 rims...& I understand that you want to stay stock but they still look great...

Holy crap, the question wasn't what do you think of the M6 wheels on my upcoming M3? It was will they FIT?

This has been my exact concern also - and would love some input. Is there anyone EURO that has take delivery that has spec'd out the wheels? Will the the OEM M6 wheels fit on the M3?

At first I was all about the M6 wheels. For some reason I grew apart from the idea.
I think the M5 wheels look really good now. Better than the M3 19s.

Hi,

new here, 1st post ....I DON'T think it will be a perfect fit based on offset info. As for looks....I think it looks ok. I prefer the M5 wheels but the offset would be an issue there too.
Check out the link below. Click on the "?" for wheel info.http://www.k-lach.net/

Hope this helps the OP.
