    Anyone running 245/40/17s?

    Hi,
    Any clearance issues? Car is a 95M3, H&R OEM Sport Springs, Konis, Stock Brakes, 17x8 ET 40 OZ wheels, square set-up. I have no desire to roll the fenders.. It's basically street use with an autocross or two thrown in.
    Thanks in advance!

    I run them on 17x9 ET42 wheels with no issues, so you will be fine. Haven't touched my fenders. I run a 12mm spacer in front to clear the struts, but you may not have to with 8 inch wheels and a lower offset. The rears will certainly be fine. Mine are a relatively tight fit at -2 degrees rear camber and a lower-than-stock ride height, but no rubbing and no fender roll. Your wheels are an inch narrower than mine, and my tires are also very wide 245's (among the widest non-slick).

    I run them on 17x8 et40. The 245/40/17 is the stock tire size for the M3 rear. Fronts fit just fine on the wheel specs I listed.
