CSL wheels fit the E90 M3?

My buddy has the E90 M3 and is wondering if the older CSL style wheels would fit on it. Not sure of measurements or any other info but hoping someone can assist. Thanks.

The VMR wheels definitely do. OEM would possibly need a spacer on the front to even out flush.

They make CSL reps. OEM ZCP (E46 Comp Package) wheels will fit with spacers. Lots of threads in the wheel and tire forum. There is a guy in Germany I believe running CSL rears all around and it looked pretty good.

4 ZCP/CSL rear wheels (19 x 9.5 ET27) fit fine, although 15mm spacers in the rear are recommended... I'm running that setup in my E90 M3.

I would like to see pictures as well, 4 rears would be pretty outrageous (in a good way) on an M3.

We actually already tried this out, and it works pretty well. We just took the rear CSL style wheel off our E46 M3 (19x9.5" ET22) and stuck it up front on our E92 M3 and it fit quite well with a lot of room even on a 275 size tire! Here the pics:





There's enough room to fit a 285 in there if you really want
