Ok another question, right now Im sitting on stock suspension and I have read the 8.5's will fit all the way around. What if i were to go lower in the future, my suspension is wearing out?

yes they'll still fit. But if you go coilovers you'll need spacers up front

Ok I am an idiot. Ive been driving my sisters G6 around at school so my M was at home for a while. I am home today and looked at the tires. They are 235's, not 245. Not sure why I thought they were 245. Anyways, will 235's fit on 8.5's? Hmmm, maybe I should just find a set of 7.5's all the way around?

It'll look odd, but you can do it.

235s will fit fine on 8.5s.

Note that these are replicas but you can get an idea of what 4 x 7.5s would look like:

Hmmmmm, I like the idea of four 8.5's better. just not sure how good 235's would look. Maybe Ill just sell my stock rims with the tires. What does a 95 set of stock rims (9.5/10) with a new set or T1R's go for?

[QUOTE=KWorker17;3385147]I'm pretty sure they have the small M logo regardless if they're stamped or not. The best way to tell they're real is you'll see some kind of BMW sign/lettering stamped on the INSIDE of the wheels.....QUOTE]

The stamped ones have no M logo, and the non stamped ones have it....as mentioned though, checking the inside is a good idea, there should be some BMW markings on the real ones...

You can do 17x8.5 all with your 245/40/17 Toyo T1R around. That is not a problem. We carry the D-Force LTW wheels. They come in silver, black/polished, and anthracite. Let me know if I can help you out with a set.
