them, or stole them, and bolted them on, not caring about off set. Either they will ruin a nice set of tires or his bearings and other suspension parts will go. Handling is probably also compromised......

rims......they WILL fit but ONLY the fronts. The offset is wrong in the rear. You would need 2 sets of fronts. If they didn't fit it would be pretty obvious as they would be sticking out of the rear fender wells. <p><i><br>them, or stole them, and bolted them on, not caring about off set.

but can't explain very well. It has to do with the weight distribution of the car on the wheel/wheel hub/bearing....Can NE1 explain?

I always here people saying you can't use the Z3 rims, but people have anyone of hundreds of performance rims (bbs, volk, acs, momo) manufactured by god knows who in their basement. How can one hurt the car but the others don't?

Front M roadster rims ( 17X7.5's w/ 38mm offset ) will fit fine on M3 all around ( same as stock rims on 95's). The rears off M roadster are way off in offset & don't fit. I've seen several M3's w/ the fronts on all 4 corners.
