08 M3 Coupe offset?

I'm having trouble trying to find a set of 18s for winter. What kind of specs (sizes..offsets...etc) do I need in order to fit them on a 08 E92 M3?
Thanks in advance guys!

I have been having the same exact problem.
I finally found a solution.
18 x 8.5 all around and 20mm offset front and back.
And i just bought the M3 18" Replicas from a seller on Ebay.
This seller was amazing and really helpful when i spoke to him on the phone.
And the price is outstanding!!

Here is the Link :

By the way i am using this as my winter setup.

There are some good choices and specs from the Rack in a sticky at the top of this forum. Many people are going with the A7 wheel in that post.

You can go with a set of 18" CSL wheels (ET20 all-around). Those will work just fine as a winter setup.

Hmm those rims have a 35mm offset though. You sure they fit? I was told from a dealership that I have to use strictly a 20 offset.

Yes all i did was speak to the sales rep and told him i needed a 18 x 8.5 all around and a 20mm offset all around and he took care of it.
So essentially all you have to do is email him to tell him what size you need and he will provide it.
