    Hi,
    I just recently purchased a 1997 M44 and I love it. I wanna know your thoughts on a 16x8 rims with 23 offset in all 4 corners. I would also like to know what tire size fits well.
    Appreciate it!
    John

    I dont think that offset will work they will poke outside the arches by a bit, do you have chance to try them first, i have 35ET on the front and they are flush so you are looking at an extra 12mm extension on this, have a look at my gallery photo's in showcase, but ignore the rear as it has had a wide body conversion

    It's okay with me if it sticks out the front by 12mm/.48". The rear will be the same. Do you think the 225/40 will stretch a little or should I go with 215/40. I want the tire sidewall to flush with the fenders. What do you think? Nice car btw.

    Hi john, I don't know about stretch, it's one of those suck it and see things, don't forget you have 5mm of lip on each arch, so may want to have them rolled, spurs fan in a coupe fitted some //M wheels to his 2.8 and had to roll the arches, he might be able to advise you further.
