Will these tires fit?

I'm coming from a G35 coupe which I had a pretty sweet set of track tires for, I'm selling the wheel they are on but I'm wondering if I should keep the tires or sell them. If they fit the M3 and are a good fit, I will keep them. I'm very new to the M, any help is appreciated.

Nitto NT05 275/35/18 - Front
Nitto NT05 295/35/18 - Rear

If they fit and I keep them, I will buy a separate set of wheels that will fit them.

Thanks!

whoops. YES (depending on wheel widths and offsets). I originally thought you were asking about those sizes in 19". Did you edit your post or did I read it wrong?

Wouldn't 19's have an easier time fitting than 18s

The tires are too wide for the standard 18" BMW wheels. You should search on "Apex" as they make a popular moderate cost track wheel in a number of widths and offsets that several people here are using. You should be able to find the information you seek regarding wheel widths and offsets that will work with your tires.. Here is the main Apex product thread: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthr...highlight=apex
