any body know if the BBS CH will have fitment issues with the E92 M3?

just saw these wheels and they look cool... wonder if they will make it (or maybe they did already) for the proper fitment for the E92.

For the 19's...

They'll fit...but requires spacers in the front & possibly in the rear depending if you choose the 9.5" (40mm offset so yes) or 10" (20mm offset so no) rears.

BBS CH black edition will fit without spacers. They are specially made for the m3 e 92. 8.5 front; 10 or 9.5 rear.

The CH's fit pretty good actually. The rear fits perfect with a 19x10 and the front only needs a 15mm spacer. I think they look great on the M3. Here is a teaser pic of my car.

CH usually take a 10mm spacer and longer lugs. The 19x10 rears do not need one. Other than that, there is no problem using them.

Ben,

So every wheel on your company's website requiring spacers will include the longer lugs/studs as part of the wheel package? Thx!

Here are a couple more pics of my car with CH's. This is with the 15mm spacers in the front. I think they fit the car really good.

Yes. The majority of the wheels do not require spacers. Those that do will have the longer lug bolts included as part of the package.

We also include lug bolts if the wheel requires different bolts than the originals, even if it does not need a spacer.

Thx for the info regarding spacers. Not that I'm complaining (just curious why)...I know the Volk wheels don't require different size/shape lug bolts for an e92 M3 but why do you guys include a new set (20) of lug bolts anyway? Also, the widths in the front for both TE37 (silver) & TE37 Time Attack are incorrect since they're suppose to be 8.5" not 8" as listed on your website if that helps.

Not sure on the lug bolts, but my database agrees with you about the 8.5" on the front for the Volk. I'll try to get the IT guys to fix it. May take a couple days.

Is your company getting lightweight 18" wheels anytime soon that doesn't require spacers for this car? Thx!

Ben,

When are you guys going to have the graphic up on your website for the M3 so we can see how wheels look via the configurator? I have been looking for it for months now!

I'm not the guy who does it, but I'll be there's some photoshopping involved in the different colors We always want to take our own photos so that we can make sure the scale is right, and the lighting is uniform and all that fun stuff (and of course to avoid any copyright issues).

To those seeking lightweight 18" no spacer: SSR Type C RS (but they're only left in one width, no extra width rears). SSR Type F will be coming to replace it, but the date is anyones guess right now.

To those looking for no spacer in general: Yes. Start with the O.Z. custom 3pc, which have a wide range of possible offsets/widths, but there are others too. I checked the Volk TE37 and those didn't show a spacer either.

Having few wheels to fit is a common issue for new cars, but usually the aftermarket catches up.
