///E90:M3 with M-Parallels

I wanted something different for winter, and didn't really want to use Snowtires (Since now I have my e60 to use in snow!). So I just wanted a set of wheels with All-Seasons, atleast I can drive in light snow!

I decided to go with a set of M-Parallels, E38 fitment, 18x8 front, 18x9.5 rear, wrapped with Bridgestone Potenza RE970 AS Pole Positions! 245 front, 265 rear.

Also, I had the wheels repainted with a full machined face, metallic silver barrel.
Thanks to MOTORCEPTS for getting everything done and thanks to PYSPEED for the expedited RS TPMS Sensors!

a few iphone shots.

Fresh! Love M-Parallels.

Amazing that they look just as good on a current M3 as they did 20 years ago. Another one of those timeless designs that makes me love BMW.

What are the specs on your rear 265s out of curiosity? Fitment looks spot on.

I was wondering what M-parallels would look like on the E9x platform. I think it looks spectacular!

Always wondered what M Pars would look like on E9x M3's. Have to say I'm pleasantly surprised. Nice job!

thanks! the front offset for these wheels are 18x8 +13mm and the stock 359s are 19x9 +31mm, which is 5mm+ more aggressive. I'm using 12.5mm spacers up front, so it's really 17.5mm more aggressive than stock 359s
