I would love a 997 ducktail on a 964. They are a little smaller and softer, I think the lines would work well on the 964.

Can't wait to see all the pieces come together.

Wheel colorway reminds me of this.

O my, that is one stunning M3 Evo. Had a chance to buy one about 12 year ago but couldn't raise the funds

Looking forward to seeing your new wheels fitted!

Well I'm gutted. Tires are too big. The rear fenders are sitting on the tires. Front wheels cant even turn without clipping the front bumper. Guess 235/40 is too big on the front

Sooo.. 225/35 front 255/35 rear? What a waste of time/money

You know i still didnt even ask what the offset ended up at. Gotta find the right size tires. 225/35 doesn't exist. Need to measure out 225/40 or go as narrow as 215... Which would suck.

You should be able to measure it if you got the wheels off the car.

225/35 is a weird size... tire selection will be limited. Is that an 17 or 18" wheel?

It looks like a 16" to 18" RS conversion. I'm guessing they did the test fit and came up with how the wheel would sit; however, they are slightly stance biased and most likely thought you would be running a lot of stretch. Ask them what the specs are on the wheels.

For the front, 235/40 is a bit too much for 18" wheels, its tight. Unless the front is super low offset, a 225/40 will most likely work.

How much camber are you running in the rear?

I hate to be a bastard but I was very sceptical... anyway I'm done being a tool.

So a 9J should be taking a 235 or 245 and 11J should be a 275 or 285 as you know. To get them to fit you're gonna have to do one of two things.... Either run a lot of camber front and rear - which I think won't make much difference or run a stretched tyres... I's suggest a 225 and 265 and lots of camber.

The maximum you can get will be -2.5 front and -3 rear. In any cad if you aren't happy about doing this tell us the lip size and hopefully you'll only have to change the inner barrels.

I suggest you give us inner and outer barrel sizes and offset - for us to help you. All in all you should definitely not have to pay extra to have the J down sized since they did all measurements and said they would fit.

From my experience and research I am running the widest you can go with standard size tyres. If you'd like to do the same your fronts should be 8.5 J with a 225 and 10J with 265.

Anyway we're here to help so get us the above stats we need and we'll sort you out asap. Sorry about the bad luck my friend.

Cheers,

Black Betty i was hoping you'd weigh in.
I Guess i never mentioned it, but he wasnt able to get the wider lips i wanted. Wheels are "just" 8.5/10, if i can get another -.5 degrees out back it should work. The front tires are just too big.

Keep in mind it is common to need to cut back where the bumper meets the fender on the inner front edge.
