Replica's can have motorsport written on them as well as being staggered. Probably something to do with a tuning company :eek:ptimist

BMW...OEM wheels have a "BMW" stamp on the inside, and will be staggered, but the stamped are the GT LTW's? I might be wrong!



The bmw registry has these...



BMW REGISTRY WROTE:
"What are the factory wheel and tire sizes for the M3 3.2?

For all versions of the 3.2-liter E36 M3, BMW M replaced the previous model's 235/40ZR17 tires with a staggered setup, specifically narrower 225/45ZR17s in the front and wider 245/40ZR17s in back. The tires are mounted on one of three wheel designs, all measuring 7.5x17-inch (front) and 8.5x17-inch (rear).

European-spec models continue to utilize one specific wheel design for each body style: M Double Spoke II for the coupe, forged M Double Spoke with a polished finish for the convertible (optional on the coupe) and M Contour II for the sedan. On North American models, the M Double Spoke II became the standard wheel for all body styles, with the forged M Double Spoke and M Contour II as options. The latter was fitted to all M3s equipped with the optional Luxury Package and became an individual option as of 9/97 production"

m3 3.0 had BMW MOTORSPORT engraved into the double spoke and the sunflower alloys (nothing written on the m3 saloons contour wheels).
m3 3.2 evo did not have anything written on them preffering instead to have a m badge sunk into the wheel.

Wheels with just MOTORSPORT written on them and not BMW they are replicas.
