Will this Fit a 2009 Coupe (E92 M3)

Found a set of BBS Ch wheels with rubber up here which will fit my M3. Could someone verify these sizes and let me know if any spaces are required. I know the rubber currently on my car is 245/35/19 and 265/35/19.

Here is the size and rubber for the CH's;

bbs ch
19x8.5 +35 offset with 235-35-19 nitto nt555 tires
19x10 +20 offset with 265-30-19 nitto nt555 tires

Let me know what you think and whether the rubber is any good or not.

Thanks in Advance..

The tire sizes are all F-ed up. The front will fit the rim ok, but is too narrow. The wheel offset in front will work as long as you run a 10mm to 20mm spacer along with the correspondingly longer bolts. The rear tire is way too short and will probably be destroyed along with the rim on the first decent pothole you hit. The rear offset seems ok.

I'd pass.

Thank-you very much. I figured I would check before making any purchase. Measure twice and cut once!!!

Thanks

See if you can buy the wheels, because the wheels will work fine. Then you can buy new tires of the correct sizes, and spacers for the front. I would do 20mm in the front so you have a +15mm offset.

I'd buy em without the rubber if possible. Those sizes won't work really. and yes, you'll need spacers up front.

What size rubber would you suggest? Will I only need a 20mm space for the front only?

Thanks; JC

Yes, a 20mm spacer. I would buy a 255/30 (or 35) in the front, and a 285 or 295/30 in the rear. That would be my preference.
