    Has it been done?

    Ok, I think Im in love with the M6 Alloys, They are a 19" not sure if they would fit the E46, and if they did, how much would it put the speedo out?



    Also like these, but they are only an 18" - a failsafe option if my first choice M6 Rims dont fit:

    Depends on the offset. Do you know what offset they are? Coupe or saloon? Saloon are less forgiving with fitting.

    Speedo will be fine so long as your sidewalls are small enough.

    I run 235/35/19 265/30/19 no problems.

    Harsh ride but 19s fill the e46 arch so well. I've seen M6 wheels on E46 and IMO it does look good. As you can see above, though, there are a lot of haters. It's your car- do what you want (just don't fit M badges or lexus rear lights on it!, )

    Well second set is considerably cheaper. and same size as OEM, so no speedo variances (which I might add my speedo is out already - vs my Road Angel, Speedo reads 60 when road angel ready 54 - so about 10% over)

    That is another question for another section now I think about it, if the car thinks your doing 60 miles an hour, and your only really doing 54, will the odometer count up 60 miles or 54? Potentially is my cars mileage 10% less than expected?

    Maybe it is your road angel. My sat nav doesn't read the same speed as my speedo. But my speedo is correct, because those road signs that show you your speed normally matches up to my speedo.



    And avoid M6 wheels. They don't look that good on any other car.

    Remember your SatNav only gives a correct rading on a flat road. You bring in a gradient and it will under-read.

    Use the correct profile tyres to maintain the same rolling radius and your speedo will read as it does now.

    I think I need to do some photoshopping. Forget the fact they are made for an M6. I like the style and design. Will have a play around.

    I've realised that the Red M3 has the new M6 wheels...
