Lightbulb Do NON-M E90/E92 offset fitment fit M?

I have rims that were built to my non-M E90. Will these rims work on a E92 M? I think it will meet fender clearance but no so sure about the claiper since M's may be larger. The rim faces are std, not high pad.

They are iForged and they didnt release the ET to me.

But they are 19x8.5 - 19x10

I wanted the largest lip so I know the front wont accomodate for BBK. I'm curious if they will fit a E92. I'm considering keeping these if they fit a M E92.

You might have to change your outer lips if you want to be able to keep these. The widest you can go with E92 M3 is 9.5"front and 11.5"rear if you needed to but most companies stay at 9" front and 10.5"rear for either E90 M3 or E92 M3.

Contact me if you want to see my 11.5" rear with a 325/25/20 tire

If they won't tell you the offset, you can measure it.

Will most likely fit with spacers. I had a set of NEEZ Euro Cross 7Model in E92 non-M fitment and used 4 15mm spacers to fit them to the M3.

thanks. i'll try measuring the offset myself. im sure its not going to be correct to the MM but gives me general idea. so what is the max ET and width for M or is that not published info yet.

luckily its only 8.5 in the front. worst case scenario like kev said, a 15mm can be used to clear the calipers. e92 m looks stunning, need to wait about 2 yrs.
