The specs for the 67M (18" and 19") for the e46 M3 isn't working
I used 1010tires.com to compare the offsets of the stock 18" rims with the recommended 17" winters and they weren't matching! However, the parts guy at BMW didn't say anything about "spacers" so I'm not sure what advice I should follow
So frustrating this stuff...
So I googled it (couldn't find the offsets on any of the 6 forums I searched) and got:
Front: 18 x 8 ET47
Rear: 18 x 9 ET26
Front: 19 x 8 ET47
Rear: 19 x 9.5 ET27
Front: 17 x 7.5 ET47
Rear: 17 x 7.5 ET25
How are these tires supposed to be interchangeable without affecting the dynamics of the car (e.g. wheel bearing/whatever) without the addition of spacers?!
Found another good link (if you sprechin ze deutsche) lol:
