They do, but it would have the turning circle of an ocean liner and foul the bodywork like buggery. (and possibly handle like a 3 legged camel on amphet) :shock: You could get some proper calipers behind them though judging by what I saw in the showroom yesterday.
We all have a photographic memory, just some don't take the lens cap off!

I think they look great and really freshen the zed up. There's not too many modern BMW wheels that look 'right' on the z3 IMO - these are an exception. Good choice :D

I still don't follow the argument about 19" wheels fouling the arches. Surely they will only do that if you put the wrong profile tyres on. If you increase the diameter of the wheel, then you must fit lower profile tyres so that the overall diameter stays the same. If you don't do this, then your speedo and odometer will not read correctly. I suppose you could recalibrate them...

In the picture above has the car not also been lowered? Which is why the wheels seem fill the arches more? And in which case that is why they will foul the arches, rather than them being 19"? :?

They will probably foul the arches as there will be additional width. Normall the width is mostly gained on the inside edge, otherwise the additional width of the rim would make the wheel foul the bodywork.

Can I remind, if the wheels do foul the bodywork/inner-arches when turning, its MOT failure. Not sure about if the wheels just touch the arch liner, but if they did that it would bother me enough to not bother, rather than put up with.
