Help please!
I have read many posts regards trying to fit staggered m3 18" alloys to a non m3.
Currently I run 18" MV2 8j with 225/40 18.
Bought a very nice set off original 18" M3 alloys 8j front and 9j back with 225 front and 245 back both 40 profile.
Fitted and rears are exposed by just 1/2 inch, because of the offset which kicks them out by 1 3/4 in relative to front. They are also larger in diameter too.
So in order to have these looking best and not fowling on arch, what do you think?
Either fit 225 to these back wheels then there stretched a bit and slightly less diameter?
Or work to arches, flare And rolling?
Has anyone achieved this?
Kindest regards Stu

Yeah, defo fitted secure. When I fitted them they went on just like my mv2's but the rears stick out because of their off set.

Absolutely! A little poke is cool.

Has anyone experience in arch rolling? Any good contacts maybe in the Northwest.
Hasvanyone swapped a 245 profile tyre for a 225 to see how much clearance this can achieve?
