Not a bad idea, but my big concern would be clearance in that case. I am sure someone will try it and report whether there are any issues. But even if it does fit, then you would be running some seriously wide rubber up front. You could use a narrower tire of course, but that brings up other issues such as rolling diameter and also the way the tire looks stretched on the rim.

I would try it, with some 265/35 up front and 275/30s in the rear...

Bringing an old thread back from the dead.

Has anyone tried the CSL or ZCP wheels on the E92?

I did some calculations of comparisons between the different wheels to calculate how "tucked in" the ZCP wheels would be on the E92. Using the numbers from south's post #15.

ZCP Front, offset of 47mm on a 8" wheel means the wheel extends out from the hub 54.5mm

E92M3 Front, offset of 29 on a 8.5" wheels means the wheel extends out from the hub 79mm.

A difference of 24.5mm or .964" with the ZCP wheel more "tucked in" or narrower track on the car.

If you used the ZCP rear wheel on the front, here are the numbers. Offset of 27mm on a 9.5" wheel means the wheel extends out from the hub 93.65mm

A difference of 14.65mm or .576" wider than the stock E92M3 wheel. Might fit??

I love the ZCP wheels, and I'd love to put them on my E92M3, however using a 25mm spacer on the front doesn't excite me at all.

Any comments or thoughts?

Only the front wheels are different (0.5" extra width on the CSL's), perhaps to keep the exclusivity of the CSL parts but most probably to keep using the same front specs of the standard M3 with 19" wheels and tires (225/40 vs 235/35 fronts in the CSL).

Only the ZCP are advertised as forged, however they are actually spun cast as the CSL, a process that is cheaper than forging but with very similar results (strong wheels while light weight). Therefore, the rears wheels weight the same and the fronts are actualy lighter -not by much- in the ZCP. These was extensively discussed two years ago in the M3Forums.

The only way to get this gunmetal/Hyperblack finish on these wheels style is to get replicas; they were never offered as OEM in the M3. These replicas are ready available from the wheel sponsors of this forum...
Were they offered in black? I need a single rear wheel due to crack in one for a car I just bought. Didn't know of issue at time of purchase.
