    Welcome @hugh,

    Do you know which particular wheels are you looking for? M-Sport is a fairly generic term...

    This site lists out every BMW OEM wheel that was made - http://felgenkatalog.auto-treff.com/

    Choose Z3 E36 from the Baureige drop down. Don't bother selecting the wheel size, as there aren't that many to look through :)

    Any questions, just shout!

    Hi Hugh, when you write a post,look for the Upload a File box at the bottom of your message, click on that and it will take you to your photo library. Select a photo and click open. It should then upload it to your message.HTH, Tony.:)

    Just put two new rear tyres on my car due to the same problem - it's lowered 30 mm. I got 6000 miles over a two year period, but I didn't switch the back tyres after 3,000 (note, not the wheels), I will do this time and hopefully get 12,000 miles out of the rear tyres. The front tyres are still fine.
