Wheel/Tire configuration help

Hey All,

I need some help with a wheel/tire configuration for an E46 M3 with the Dinan S3-R package. Dinan puts some huge wheels on it (F-275 30/19, R-285 30/19). It's partially to accomidate the huge brembo brake rotors (F-380mm or 14.9", R-345mm or 13.6"). I would like to go to an 18" wheel so I have more tire options for the track. Can anyone help me with some suggestions of wheels that will fit over these brakes???

Thanks,

Matt

You're not going to find an 18" wheel that will accommodate 380mm rotors, even with ultra low-profile calipers. If there is such a wheel, I wouldn't trust it on the track because the wheel rim would likely be too thin. Good luck. Try the e46 M3 section of the forum (http://www.m3post.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=75).

Thanks...that's what I thought. And I'm not very excited about changing my entire brake set up.
