Question about 1999 BMW Z3
Hi I have been offered OEM BMW Z3 wheels from an M model, will they fit a 2.8ltr 1999 Z3 Roadster?
I have a 2002 Z3 coupe and ran into the same problwm with the rear wheels--M Roadster/Coupe have a lower offset than the standard Z3. I love the look of the deep dish roadstar wheel and wasn't about to give up. I found that shaving the inside lip of the fender a little and running 235 40 17 vs 245 40 17 tires will allow the tires to clear the fender without rubbing. I added a small black plastic door guard strip to cover the remaining inside lip for added tire wall protection. The wheels really don't stick out much and actually give the car a more aggressive look than having them tucked in like the M version. It's like having a wheel spacer already built it.

I believe the fronts will fit, but the rears will not because the axel for the Z3M has a narrower width or track to allow for the wider M wheels. Spacers would not solve that. Some try to fit fronts on all corners, but the look is best with the wider rears. MJOwens
