Does it fit without any spacers? Have you used it? Any problems? Can one just buy one and use it without anything else?

problems. He had it on his car, both back and front and drove the vehicle with no problems. Peter showed by calculations that the 135/80-17 tire was the same height of the M3 tires. Just multiply 135 times 0.80 times 2 and add this to 17x25.4 gives tire height in mm. You can't get this tire in the US, however, BmW can order a 125/80/17 tire for you. They are back logged some 2 months. This tire is only 1/2 inch smaller than the 135/80-17 but works fine. Peter's data was great. Even BMW had reservations of whether or not the rim would work on the E46M3, but it works fine.
