Can anyone crunch some numbers and figur if these rims will fit on my Mz3 Hatch? Thanx!

Size: Front wheels: 19 x 8.5 H2 ET38
Rear wheels: 19 x 9.5 H2
All wheels have 7mm spacer!
Tires: Continental ContiSportContact Tires 245 35 ZR 19

Anyone try 20's yet? How about front 19's and rear 20's since rear has a bit more clearance.

Some input pleeez before I'm short a couple thousand bucks. :twisted:

I agree that you should stick with 17's. If you plan on lowering the car then they will usually look a little bigger anyway. (plus the wheel/tire combo will probably be lighter)

If you go big, you definately need to get custom 2 or 3 piece forged. Wheels that big tend to bend very easily if they were cast.

If I was going to go 19s, it would be HRE all the way.

18's are the largest wheel I would go with for the MZ3.

My choices would be from Advan or Volk Racing.

18 would be the biggest i'd go, one of our members here has the 18inch RX-8 wheels and it looks great.

19's or 20's? holy shit... those don't really even fit on a 6. Some people have shoehorned 19's in but most of them have removed them... you can't really go on ROADS with them.

Are they flush with the fenders or do they stick out past them?

What are the offsets for the RX-8 18's?
