Our 2005 Silver Gray BMW E46 M3 with 18" CCW Classic Wheels
Our 2005 BMW E46 M3 just received a bit of an upgrade - CCW Classic Wheels.
When I saw these wheels posted on a few facebook groups by the old owner, I fell in love with them. These are unique, lightweight wheels that you just almost never see on the E46 M3.
I messaged the old owner of these wheels and asked him if he ever considers to sell these CCW's to let me know. Turned out he was a great guy, so we struck up good conversation and kept in touch.
One day I received the message "If you want these wheels, they're yours. I decided to sell them". YES!
I told him I will drive down to Southern California from Northern California and pick them up ASAP. And I did just that - two days later.
CCW Wheels Specs:
- 18x9 +19 Fronts
- 18x11 +25 Rear
- Michelin P4S 245/35/18 front and 285/35/18 rear.
I did have to have the rear fenders trimmed a bit for these really wide wheels to fit without rubbing. I think it turned out great, I'm super happy with the look. I think these CCW Classics fit the E46 M3 body just right.
The rear tires had a nail in one of them when I bought it, so I bought two new rear tires. When the fronts need to be replaced, I think I am going to see if I can go 255 or maybe 265 wide. However, these are my street wheels, so I think I might just leave it as is. My track wheels are 275/35/18 square.
Now that I have the stance the way I like (using Eibach Pro-Street Coilovers) I'm going to start focusing on some interior modifications. Stay tuned for more on our project E46 M3!
