Thoughts on TE37 Fitment

Hi all,

Looking to pick up a used set of TE37's with tires and want to know if this set will work on my car without any rubbing. It's a family car so safety 1st.

Car is an e90 M3 with EDC on stock suspension.

Here are the wheel specs:

TE37RT
Nitto NT05 tires
18 X 9.5 +22 (275/35/18)
18 X 11 +34 (295/35/18)

Question is will it rub and any issues with EDC or ABS due to diameter differences?

Thanks in advanced for your input!

They will fit fine, I run the same offset and tire up front with no issues and I am lowered a little bit. For the rear I would add a 5mm spacer and the car will sit perfect

Thanks for the feedback. I'm really liking the way both your cars look.

Looking forward to getting them on the car this weekend!

My new te37rt with 18 9.5 / et 22 and 18 10.5 et 20 265/35 285 35 pzero. Rubbed at front fender line.... rear most likely rub too, but not sure..

Damn I wish they had 27 rear ET and 28 or 31 front et (ppl can add spacers instead of having to machine it off)..

The front rubs quite bad.

I'm surprised you're rubbing. How low is your ride height?

stock edc zcp. otherwise I wont complain much.

A shop says the shock absorber mountings may be bad causing the ride height to go slightly lower. Any logic to this?

And this car have 4x shock mountings or 2x mountings?

A spacer will be required in my experience et34 is too conservative and hits the inner wheel liner. Plan to run at least 5mm and possibly a 10mm spacer. 10mm spacer will be tight as it could rub on the outside with a 295/35/18 and 11 et24

Apologies for late update. So i purchased the wheels and the tires as per the specs stated in the thread and am happy to report they fit perfect with no rub even at full lock. Keep in mind mine is an e90 and I hear the sedan has more clearance in the rear that the coupe.

It also filled the gap nicely which is great as I have no plans to lower the car. The rears have maybe a half inch gap and fronts has just a tiny bit more.

I added 10mm spacers on the rear but more for aesthetics, to have the rears stick out just slightly more than the fronts.

Super happy with the wheels and the tires. Grip and unsprung weight have been drastically improved over stock 19's.

Only thing i don't like is the hub rust
