    Re: do style 50's fit on M3

    Look on the back of one of them for the size AND OFFSET.
    it should be stamped with something like:
    7J 17 as in 7" wide, 17" diameter, and
    ET 41 which is the offset
    You should be easily OK with an offset of 35 or above, maybe lower depending on width, suspension mods, etc.

    Past that, I believe it's a bit of a crap shoot on fitting 16's on an M3 because the brakes sit out further than regular E36. I know my lightweights appear to have less than 1/2 clearance from the calipers, so I don't see how that design could work in 16" for example, but I've seen some say they ran 16" on an M3.

    This board is kind of dead, might try m 3 foru m dot net or some of the others.
