Hope you guys enjoy the wheels, and I can't wait to see some mounted pics, and street/track testing results.

Aus, Hyper Black is really hard to photograph since sun light can make it look brighter then even traditional silver.



These wheels are in stock and ready to ship!

When i click on the link and look at the info about the wheel, it states that it was designed for the 3 series and Z. It does not mentioned E90/92 M3.

What is the darkest finish available? Satin black?

Do these wheels accept BMW center caps?

The M3 is a 3 series. Just like the E46 M3, and regular non-m E90's, and Z cars, there is an overlap in fitments. As you can see above, with the 5 fitments we made in 18" sizes, there are two great combinations for your application.

Satin Black is the darkest finish available with Anthracite coming in second for darkest.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks. I understand that a M3 is a 3 series. I was asking if these wheels (i.e. offsets) were specifically made for the E90 M3.

If you run a 265/35/18 front street tire on the 9.5" wheels then you will not need any spacers at all. I would recommend a spacer for an r-compound or racing slick in that specific size. The rear 18x10" is spec'ed as the correct offset for the E92 M3 for the street and race tires.

A common tire for example would be the Nitto NT-05 in 265/35/18 front and 285/35/18 rear.

Ok, i am planning on running either PSC or Yoko A048 (both r comps) in 265/35/18 in front and 285/30/18 in the rear. What spacer would you recommend for the front?

If you're running r-comps then to be safe I would pick up a pair of 12mm spacers.

Eric at PYSpeed can get you RS Technik spacer's for about the same price as people are selling used spacers.

Would a square setup with 18 x 9.5 wheels and 265/40/18 rub or cause any issues?

looking at the offset of the 18x9.5" wheel, it looks like spacers would be needed for this set up if i were to put these in the fronts. am i right?

Only if you're using a very wide tire or R-compounds.
In prior threads, people have shown they fit fine up front with street tires.

no spacers needed up front with a 265/35/18 street tire which is the most common setup people are using. If you went with 265 r-compounds then a spacer would be needed. But most people running r-compounds like the nt-01 in 275, choose to run the 18x10" et25 wheel which needs no spacers front or rear. So it just depends on your tire needs.

I don't have good photos of those colors on the E92 M3, but I know many customers purchased that setup (hopefully more photos will be sent to me).

here are some other BMW's with those combos. Note the wheels shown are a different width/offset and are not concave like the wheels for the E92 M3.

Hyper Black



Anthracite
