Would a Morr VS8 for a E92 335 fit a E90 M3?

As Above... I'm currently drive a E92 335 and would be changing to a E90 M3 sedan in the coming weeks. Would my current Morr VS8 fit my E90 M3?
Any help is appreciate. The Morr rep on this forum isn't really responding to my PMs.
Thanks in advance

Sublimey,

First of all, congrats on the new M3!!! You're going to love it

Secondly, my apologies for not replying to your PM. Please remember that you PM'd us on Friday, and we do ask for customers to give us 24hrs for forum replies since we cannot be on the forums at all times. Since your PM came in on Friday, it would be replied today, Monday (as we don't open on the weekends).

More importantly than all of that, let's get you squared away!

The E9x 335i VS8's are 19x8.5" ET35mm and 19x9.5" ET28mm. Our E9x M3 VS8.2's are 19x9" ET22mm and 19x10" ET20mm. You've got a significant difference in offsets to make up on , but it's not that it *CANNOT* be done; it will require spacers however.

Remember that we make vehicle-specific wheels, so when we made the VS8.2 for the M3, we re-engineered it, and changed the profiles, the offsets, and even the front wheel width from a 19x8.5" to a 19x9".

To answer your question further, in order to make them sit just how our E9x M3 VS8.2 fit, you would need the following spacer sizes:

Front: (19x8.5" ET35mm to 19x9" ET22mm) you need a 19mm spacer (which doesn't exist), so you would purchase a 20mm spacer. We recommend the Turner Motosports spacers. Don't forget you'll need extended lugs too.

Rear: (19x9.5" ET28mm to 19x10" ET20mm) you need a 14mm spacer (or closest to it). You'll need extended lugs as well.

You do have other options; check your PM

- Andy
