can you run e46 18" m3s on a e92 w/comp pack?

I may be able to get a set of e46 18s for a decent price as snow rims then throw snows on it . do they fit an e92 with competition pack ? or is the offest all wrong and it will just be bad news??

Are these style 67 wheels?

If so offsets aren't optimal, especially the front. You would need to run spacers all around to fit right.

OE 18" from the E46 M3 are 18x8 +47 and 18x9 +27.

OE 18" from the E92 M3 are 18x8.5 +29 and 18x9.5 +23.

To even get close to the look of the standard 18s from an E92 M3, you would have to use well over a standard 18mm spacer up front and roughly a 10mm spacer in the rear.

If you can find square OE 18s from an E46 M3, which are rather readily available depending on where you live, I personally think that would be a better route in regards to fitment.

If you can get those OE E46 M3 18s for very cheap, you could just stick on larger spacers to make it look a little more aesthetically pleasing.

Other options are to get wheels that are close to the spec of OE E92 M3 18s.

I prefer not to deal with spacers and such ... nor do i mind if they slightly tucked in because it is going to be a strictly winter setup

I will look into the link and more info thank you !
