    I dont know about the e30 M3.
    Ok, thanks. Good to know. I THINK the E30 M3 rear hubs retain the factory non-M hub face location. This is based on the research I have been doing.

    5 lug rear is easy.

    If you already have a 325i or is, buy Z3 6cyl hubs, new bearings and press out the old bearings with the old hubs and install the new components.

    This will get you rear 5 lug that will fit stock e36 wheel fitments. IE 17x8.5 et 40.

    as for brakes, I used Z4 rear rotors. these are vented instead of solid. But, I am using aftermarket calipers, so this my not work for you.
    Is there any difference between 6 cylinder Z3 hubs and E30 M3 hubs in the rear? Do the Z3 rear hubs cause a change in offset from stock?
