That M Coupe is using our Anthracite ARC-8 wheels in 18x9.5" ET35 and 18x10" ET25 with 275/35/18 Continental slicks. Unfortunately that is much too wide of a fitment for your non-M Z4 and it would require significant fender modifications to make that fit on your car.

Though we do have direct fitments and wider fitments (if you have camber plates) for your car. A direct fitment for your car would consist of 18x8.5" ET38 front wheels with a 235/40/18 tire and an 18x9.5" ET35 rear wheel with a 255/35/18 tire. This fitment would provide a nice staggered look with a concave wheel in the rear.

Question!

I've got a 2003 3.0i Z4. What would fit on my non-M for concave ARC-8s? I've got KW V1 coilovers which I can adjust the ride height if need be.

I really like that black M roadster's set up with the black ARC-8s. What can I do to achieve that without messing around with fenders and whatnot?

Thanks!

On your Non-M Z4 the widest rear wheel in the ARC-8 model you would be able to fit would be 18x9.5" ET35 with a 255/35/18 tire. It is possible to use the 18x9.5" ET35 up front on your car but you will absolutely need more negative camber unless you are willing to use an undersized 245/40/18 front tire. Even then we do suggest pulling the alignment pins on your front strut mounts for about .5 degree more negative camber and added front fender clearance.


17x9.5" ET35 Hyper Black ARC-8's with 255/40/17 Hankook RS3's. Adjustable camber plates are required for this fitment because of the very wide Hankook RS3 tires.


18x8.5" ET38 front and 18x9.5" ET35 rear ARC-8's in Hyper Black with a 225/40/18 front tire and 255/35/18 rear tire.

Thanks for your reply!

So basically the front wheels will have to be that flat faced version of the ARC-8s right? I wanted some concavity on the front as well like some of those M versions because it looks so much better.

I'm currently running 19" VMR V710s on Hankook V12 (235/35-19, 255/35-19) staggered with no rubbing on KWV1s on the lowest setting.

I'm really wanting some lighter wheels since I daily drive this thing and the VMRs are so heavy compared to my stock 17s lol.

Do you have any extra shots of a direct fitment for my car on different angles showing the concavity/width?

Sorry for all the trouble, I just REALLY like the look & weight of these wheels. Thanks!

Yes, you would have to use either 18x8.5" ET38 or 18x9" ET42 flat face wheels in the front of your Z4 unless you had a means of obtaining additional negative camber with adjustable camber plates. It may be possible to use our 18x9.5" ET35 in the front of your car if you use an undersized 245/40/18 street tire and pull the alignment pins on your stock strut mounts to obtain about .5 degree more negative camber but it will still be very close and the possibility for rubbing on the front fenders is high.

The only other photos we have of non-M Z4's would be using the flat face 18" wheels.

Fitment for M Coupe

Joe:

Great looking wheels - do you ship to Canada ?

Would this set up work on my 2006 M coupe without messing with camber to spacers ?

Wheel: ARC-8, Hyperblack, Front 18X9 +42F, Rear 18X10 +25R
Front Tire 245/40-18, Rear Tire 275/35-18
Stock Suspension

It has stock suspension but I may put on some adjustable coil overs - It is FI with an ESS 445 Supercharger so some extra rubber wouldn't hurt. Do you mount tires as well ?

Thanks

We do indeed ship to Canada!

The 18x9" ET42 and 245/40/18 wheel and tire combination works great on the front of your car as long as you are using a street tire. We do recommend pulling the alignment pins on your stock strut mounts to obtain a little bit more negative camber but this is not absolutely necessary and should be able to work without doing it.

The 18x10" ET25 and 275/35/18 rear wheel and tire combination also works great and is the maximum width we can suggest for the Z4M without any additional modifications. We can do tire packages if the wheels are a local pick up but not on shipments

I will be sending you a PM as well with a little bit more information on Shipping to Canada.

Will those specs work with a tire such as BFG Rivals?

We have not had direct experience with the BF Goodrich Rivals, but from what we've been told by our customers, the Rivals fit similar to the Hankook R-S3's, so it should still work with your Z. At a lowered ride height, since these tires run wider than a normal street tire, you may want to roll your rear fenders in order to avoid fender rubbing.

For most street tires, the rears can take the 275/35/18 tire size on either the 18x9.5" ET22 or 18x10" ET25 rear wheel fitment. However, any summer performance tire, such as the Hankook R-S3 or Dunlop Star Specs, would require you to roll the rear fenders for the 275/35/18 size. If you are looking to avoid rolling fenders, those summer tires in the 265/35/18 size would be a better option.
