    Check out the concavity of these 18x9.5" ET35 ARC-8 wheels with 255/35/18 tires on a 330i sedan. A heavy fender roll in the rear was required to fit this setup.

    Concave ARC-8 wheels on an M roadster are a real treat. This setup consists of 18x9.5" ET35 up front and 18x10" ET25 in the rear.

    Hey Max, sorry I was referring to the Estoril E36 M3. Didn't realize the initial post didn't get attached.

    It looks like those are the 17x9 ET30 concave wheels. I have the ET42 versions because it's easier to get them to fit on an E36, and you can fit wider tires on them. The ET30's require a fender roll (and likely some ride height adjustment) to fit in the rear with a 245 tire. They do look nice though.

    No worries! That car was actually featured on our blog which I will link to below if you are interested in specifics on this build.

    CHANDLERíS ESTORIL BLUE E36 M3 WITH ARC-8 WHEELS

    The car is running our 17x9 ET30 ARC-8 wheels with a 245/40-17 on all four corners. No spacers required for this fitment, but you will need to roll your rear fenders in order to clear this fitment.

    I hope this helps!

    can you fit 17*9 Et30's on a stockish bodied e36 with 245 hoosiers?

    Fenders are rolled pretty hard. Can't pull them too much per class rules.

    Pelase advise.

    Thanks for the post! With 245 Hoosiers on the 17x9" ET30, you'll very likely need to pull the rears a bit. The 17x9" ET42 can fit them however with a pretty standard fender roll, although this fitment requires 12mm front spacers for suspension clearance.
