Thanks for the info. If I wind up getting these for my M3, the offset is likely different than stock. It look like these replicas have an offset of 37. And stock is 23/29 (gotta look). Will that present me any problems? Extra wheel bearing strain?

Yes I think they do and I have had nothing but problems with cheap wheels. Just get some used OEM 18" wheels from a forum member (see wheel and tire for sale section). Keep in mind that a decent set of OEM wheels will easily be sold after you are done with them. These reps will be throw-aways.

Plus the offset of 37 is completely wrong for an M3. You will probably need spacers which isn't a huge issue but adds another $200 (spacers and extended lugs) to this "great deal". Plus do you know the tire sizes? I wonder if those are right for your car....

Tire sizes are recommended for my car per BMW SA. 235/40/18. I guess I'll go look on the forum for actual OEM sets.

A true OEM 18" M3 wheel will certainly have the correct offset. I noticed that you loosely used the term "OEM" in your original post. OEM is a term that refers to something that came on the car from the factory. A replica or any aftermarket wheel by definition is NOT OEM.

I used that term because that's what his ad listed it as "OEM". I know what it means...I just didn't know it wasn't actually OEM

Look for a set of 18s (real OEM style 219.) There are always some for sale in the classifieds. Price for wheels only generally ranges from $800-1000 give or take for good condition, $1100-1300 with tires.

They're definitely replicas if 18s in style 220. Beware what offset they are because they probably aren't made for a real M3 although if you have a 335xi, that might be ok. Price seems reasonable.

I believe they are offset of 20. Wonder if that would work for 2009 m3 coupe with the need for spacers. He says it is hub centric and does t require centering rings..

If they are ET20 front and rear it would work but I wouldn't do it, even for that price.

You have to remember that actual real M3 wheels will not fit on an 335i without modification or different tire sizes. The M3 has a wide body so it has more space for the larger wheels. The 335i has a narrow body so it can not fit the OEM M3 wheels without modifications.

They should fit fine then if they are OEM... but that set you mentioned earlier is definitely not OEM. The 220m style did not come in 18" sizes. Probably an OEM-style wheel but not original.

I have a full set of OEM 219 18" wheels in satin finish for sale. Two of the wheels have some rash but that is reflected in my lowered price.

If interested, PM me. I'm sure we can work out a deal

Quick question. Did BMW make an OEM 18 inch style 219 in silver? Or only gunmetal. I've seen silver ones for sale. Want to make sure they are OEM

Why don't you mail the guy on this thread instead of jacking my thread with your questions? Bro.
