Will OEM Style 67s fit the E92 M?

I'm thinking of picking up some 18" style 67s, painting them black, and using them for the track. Will they fit? I know they're .5" smaller, width wise, than the stockers, so would I need spacers to make them fit?

Probably not the best track choice.
1) They're heavy (26#/28#)
2) They're narrower--not as good of support for stock tire width; will not handle wider tires
3) They will require spacers, at least to look right, if not for fit.

are you getting stock e46 front and rears? I have all rear e46 track tires left over - I am going to see if they fit someday. but they are four rear wheels with 265 tires.

I believe they fit with 15mm spacers in front?

i tired both a front e46 18 and a rear. both hit the front caliper bad enough that the bolts wont line up. if they did work with a spacer I would guess you would have only a few thousands of an inch clearance.
