Despite being 17" wheels, the ARC-8's can clear many popular big brake kits.



Give us a call for any fitment related questions or BBK clearance questions and we'd be happy to help you out!

OP I am thinking of running a square 17X10 ET25 setup with KW V3 coilovers, would there be any clearance issues?

thank you, i've been looking for a 17 inch setup every since i've had an m3.

While we have not had the ability to test a car with KW V3 coilovers on the e9x M3, we do know that the overall diameter between the 275/40/17 and 275/35/18 tires is within 0.1", so because the 18x10" ET25 in 275/35/18 sized tires requires a 5mm spacer to clear the progressive V-shaped springs, we think it's safe to believe that the 17x10" ET25 in 275/40/17 tires would also need a 5mm spacer.

17" ARC-8's are a great alternative to 18" wheels when looking for a budget friendly, lightweight setup for your E9x M3.



Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have!

This car is running 275/40/17 Toyo R888's which are very meaty. No camber plates are required to run these wheels and tires, and no spacers are needed either.



Give us a call if you have any questions regarding wheel fitment.
