    hi there, i have a bmw 325ti and i just bought M3 alloys
    (255 rear)(225 front)
    tried them on today and the back seem to be rubbing quite a bit and thats not even a full car!, whats the best way to sort this problem, is it possible to fare the arches but will this be pricey?
    any info about this would be good, thanks

    original" M3 set up" alloys wont fit a compact or any other bmw for that matter without arch work thats why people get 4 front M3 alloys all round that way they will fit it is possible to get your arches flared or the inner lip rolled

    thanks for the reply, i will look into it, its just rubbing at the 1 point just on the inside of the arch, is getting the arches flared or the innner lip rolled pricy?
    thanks

    Loads of places will do arch rolling, but with the M3 alloys you may find you need to stretch a thinner tyre on there too - I assume they're 18's (in which case the rear tyre should be 255/35-18 currently). I'm sure others on here will be able to advise on what tyre to consider - bear in mind that anything you put on will have to be as close to the circumference of the 255/35-18 as you can get it, otherwise the traction control system will throw a complete hissy fit.
