this is what he replied in the email...not sure if it makes sense


"Hi Joe,
The rims are still available.
Offset (i.e) backspacing is 6.5" on the front rims and 6" on the rears.
The rims are 18".
I ran them on a 325i I sold in July with no problems.
I also have four Continental high performance tires for sale (about two month old). They fit these rims."

sounds like he doesnt know what hes talking about... But you can always make any rims fit... some just take more work than others

Or maybe its just me but i dont understand this at all "Offset (i.e) backspacing is 6.5" on the front rims and 6" on the rears."

umm ya thats what made me like wtf...he sent me pictures of the car with the rims on it and it was a 325i so they did fit but he said the tires he was also selling were very low profile but in the pictures it doesnt look "low profile" at all plus he said he did no fender work at all and i thought for oem staggered m3 rims to fit it would require serious work because of the low offset in the rear?

he didnt say...i will ask him, but they look like in the picture they have a decent amount of sidewall...i will upload the pics he sent when i get home. my work computer wont allow me to upload pics...he also said the "low profile tires" look really good because the sidewall fills up the wheel gap. from the pictures it looks like he was running a 4x4 :lmao:

400 is for just rims btw

1)you can fit 28" on a sedan with the right work.
2) Stock is usually 16". Aftermarket usually lingers in the 17" and 18"
3) true ballers roll on 19" and 20"
4) the man doesn't lie...they are OEM m3 STYLE but not the ones you put on a m3. They are not compatible
