I have just purchased 4 18" alloys in mint condition, 2002 M3. I have had the front wheels installed ok on my car (97' 320i) only to discover that the back ones are a bit too wide. Any ideas?

hahaha you are supposed to use 4 front M3 wheels for an e36. But i guess you are beyond that point. What you need to do it roll out your fenders, or I guess if its possible, get m3 rear fender....but i dont know if those are wider. The rims are about a half inch too wide i believe.
