Will my CCWs from my Z3 MCoupe fit

Hi Guys

Yesterday I became an owner of a Z4 MCoupe. I was involved in a minor accident in my Imola red Z3 MCoupe and insurance decided to declare it a total loss.

I'm trying to figure out if my CCW LM20 wheels I had on my Z3 MCoupe will fit. My Z4 is stock ride height. The wheel/tire specs are:

18 x 9 +35, 245/35
18 x 10.5 +19, 295/30





Thanks,
-al

The rears won't without an aggressive fender roll. Why don't you just... try to throw them on?

I think I will give them a shot when I have some free time. My original plan was to sell the wheels as I didnt think they would fit at all.

Is 10.5 just too wide for the rear? I think I could get away with a 275 but it would be a stretch and that's not really my thing.

10.5 wide is fine, with around 22 offset, and 275s

those will fit for sure...you'll need to roll the fenders and run 275's and you should be good...275 really isn't a bad stretch especially considering you can run a 40 sidewall, and it's still 20mm wider than stock

my personal inspiration...runs 19x11 +17 with a 275 tire

The first pic is 18x9.5 et32 with a 12mm spacer and the second pic is 18x10.5 or 18x11 with unknown offset...



Maybe you can just order 2 lips 1/2'' smaller than what you have right now for the rears so you would have 18x10 et 25 or something like that and it would fit for sure.

Garage List
is it possible to disassemble the LM20 wheels and mount the face behind the barrel seam? that might make the need for fender rolling less important.



EDIT: nevermind... i think that makes it worse.

The simplest solution would a a .5" smaller lip to make them 18x10 +25

Aren't CCW lips about $150? You like the wheels, get new outer lips for the rears.
