first off i want to say modbargains service is amazing. Ron was on the phone with me for a while helping me figure out which wheels i liked and gave me his opinions in everything.

i ended up getting the axis pentas.

20X10 with 22 offset rear

19X8.5 front 35 offset front

I know i might be pushing it with the rear but i allready had 19's so i want to try something new.

so has anyone heard of or done a staggered squared(i guess we should call it this, staggered X staggered, offset and size) lol

i would be interested to see if you were able to run suspension without rubbing and what tire sizes

thanks guys

You might get a rub.

Damn, those must weigh a ton. I used to have a 350z with Hiros...it's like driving a fat kid in the car.

so it seems to me i shouldnt rub. because the rim is 10 wide with 25 offset. the height should make a difference on fender rubbing. ill probably just run a 275/25/19. id like to run a 30 profile if i can pull it of though. i dont want to look like im riding on rubber bands.

I run 19 x 10 285/30 rear on GC and 600lbs coilovers.
front 19 x 9.5 on 275/30. no rubbing.
Potenza S03's.

Interesting.....will be one of the first I can remember to run a bigger rim in the rear. I have seen Corvettes and Porsches, but no M3. Definitely post pics. Pentas are amazing looking...one of my favorites and not super overpriced. :thumbsup:

actually, I remember Victor of MMS tuning in Miami with this set up on his Dakar Yellow M3 with HREs. Looked sick. Maybe someone can dig up a pic.
