I put 18 x 8.5's on my E36 this summer. I had to roll the fender lips in in the back because they were rubbing big time. They still rub a bit if I have people in the back and I go over a bump. I'm not sure how much worse this will be with the extra 1/2".

tire sizes...

i know one of my friends e36's has 245 on 17 inch wheels on there, and he had to offest his wheels, which makes his tires wear unevenly.....you might want to think about having your fenders rolled at a respectable shop...if you do it right then you'll never have to worry about it again right?

Very nice choice !! Is it true that e36 M3 fenders are a bit wider? Double check with Razkal cuz I thought he was running 225s all around.


I thought they were the new RG-R.

245 wouldn't fit my car unless i rolled the fenders, 235 was as wide as i could go on my '93 325i

how much do those rims cost? I think they're absolutely gorgeous!

I am actually running 225's all around and I still had to roll the lips.. Not a biggie tho - with the machines these days that they use - no need to worry

Hey Razkal and Mogie,

Who rolled your rear fenders and how much did it cost?
Does this process damage the paint?
