if the offsets, bolt pattern, and tire sizes are right they should fit...it will probably still look ridiculous (in a bad way), though...

actually try them on would be interesting to see

Wouldn't even put them on if it was free, I ran 21s for Sema and that was still too big.. 20 is max i'd go.

I think it will throw the classiness of the ///M3 out the window; besides, the weight will kill your performance....and why buy a performance machine and then ruin it with such a gaudy and useless modification. I recommend not going larger than 20".....just my two cents.

I don't want you to spend any time and do the work for nothing, but please put the 22" rims on, just for fun. I want to laugh at "bling-bling" / "DUB style" .

It might be possible, but is there a reason?

Alternative #1 sell them and get proper wheels.

p.s. I'm not entirely sure that one's allowed to masturbate in public. But I guess the point is one COULD (and get beaten up/arrested/all the above).

I'd rather go the other way.... 14" dayton 100spokes....with a SBK (not BBK) and then SLAM it to the ground.

Sounds like a good way to ruin an M3 to me. Maybe a big wing would help as well.
