18" OEM M-parallels

I have a set of four 18x8. Was planning on using them for my E30 M3. A different OEM wheel has popped up that I've been looking for for a long time. If I work out something for them, these will be available.

Just of note, these usually come as a staggered set. The wider rears are painful to put on an E30. So usually means that you have to get two sets or get lucky and find a set already assembled with the narrower fronts.......... sort of like this.

This is what they look like in 18" on an E30 M3.

Off the top of my head, can't remember. This set is basically the fronts off a 740i sport. Direct bolt up though. Everyone I know that's running them ...... direct bolt up regarding offset. I do think they may need a hub adaptor though, but not sure. I haven't gotten that far in the project....... she's still sitting on stilts

So do I............. not for sale yet until I secure the deal on the other wheels. Just wondering if there's interest....... that will make the decision to grab the other set a little easier as unfortunately I don't have an unlimited car parts funding source ............ like some big players from Texas do

Offset = 25 mm

Dude, if you're going to link photos of my car from my site, you could give me the courtesy of asking, since you are using my bandwidth to sell your stuff.

Tom, you're off by a bit.

18x8's are ET13.
18x9.5's are ET25.

The M-Parallels used on the 95 M5 were:

18x8 ET20
18x9 ET22

I believe these to be the best fit on the e30 chassis.

You're right Kev, but then again those are much more rare than the E38 M Parallels.
