BBS Size Question?

Will these BBS LM's fit a E92 M3?

19x8.5 front +32 offset
19x10 rear +25 offset

Will spacers be required or will they fit stock? Will my original OEM 19" rubber fit on these wheels.

Thanks.

They come with the following rubber which the seller is not prepared to remove. Will the rubber work?
19x8.5 front +32 offset / 235-35-19 kumho ecsta spt
19x10 rear +25 offset / 265-30-19 kumho ecsta spt

Can I swap the original OEM rubber out if the kumho won't work on these wheels?

Thanks

I think those tire sizes would look REALLY bad on an m3. It's like putting baby tires on a car that has space for so much more. 275/35/19 or 285/35/19 is where it's at for the rears.

The fronts won't look that bad, but why would you go thinner in the front compared to OEM? I would get different tires, other then that the wheels in the front would need spacers.

Those are not quite correct on the front offsets, and the tires are all wrong. You could use the front wheels, and add a spacer. The stock tires would fit the front, but the rears would be a little stretched. This is not the ideal set up, but you could get it to work.

As MrHarris pointed out, the tires will look too thin and the offset is not aggressive enough imo; btw I'm running the exact same setup on my e92 335i and it sits flush, however, given the wider fenders on the M3 you might make it work by switching to wider tires and/or spacers. Anyways, good luck.

MrHarris is quite right.

They look like they were on a non-M E90.
all you need to do as far as offset is concerned is put a 10MM spacer up front and you can even opt for 5mm at the back.

As for the tires, highly not recommended for you ///M.
you can use the stock sizes without problem.
infact, we have done quite a few Bridgestone RE-11 in stock size setups for the 8.5 front and 10.0 rear on BBS LM and LM-R.

hope this helps and feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
don't be shy: will help even if we didn't sell it to you!
