those wheels are not ghetto at all. if i saw those on some bangers ride i'd instantly have more respect for said banger. ghetto wheels are chrome and have retarded patterns.

I'm not talking about the donked out Crown Victoria kind of ghetto, but rather the ghetto ricers/krauters who are still keeping the F&F torch lit deep into the 21st century..

If you ever played NFS Most Wanted, those wheels are the sort of shit you could customize your digital M3 with in-game. There is a zero chance that the previous owner wasn't influenced by that..

Sounds good to me. He also thought that maybe just swapping to different tires would do the trick.




exhaust tips

The real answer is to swap those stupid wheels for ones of the proper size. I'm guessing the stock ones are probably 17s or 18s. Also, the M3's stock wheels are staggered. For a reason.

You would need to shim the perches by quite a bit to eliminate the rubbing.

glad you're getting rid of the rims though, it should look a lot better with some appropriately sized wheel in a good style.

Ya, badges are odd. Also the exhaust tips are bothering me now...

I think the wheels are great, but my priority is to stop this f%+$+%+%(ing scraping, not cosmetics.

I don't believe so, but I'd need to pop the wheels off to be sure.

Actually IMHO the factory stock M3 wheels look beautiful and you know they're well made and obviously won't rub or anything. BMW is one of the only auto manufacturers ever to put perfect wheel designs and setups on their cars that I don't just automatically assume I would be changing right away.

I would go for the E39 M5 wheels, no doubt

I do also like those optional chrome 19's, but these are



I also need to be careful... I could trade away these (probably?) fairly valuable wheels then find out the problem isn't solved...

It's the diameter/width + suspension drop causing the issues...going down on wheel size/width will cure it.

Anyway, just do a little pricing for decent tires in the size/width of you current setup...gonna have to either take it easy with the burnouts/cornering or cut back on vapping.

Selling those things and getting a set of decent 18"x 8-8.5" wheels would look nice and be the sensible thing to do..


Of course it's ghetto so that won't happen.
