3. wider tires/wheels on rear using staggered wheels


It require minimum 16x8 style 5 for 16s only to fit e46m3 front brake
and most 17s OEM or aftermarket wheels

Bearing sleeve installation

I suggest remove your stock e30 knuckle and send to shop to make 14.5mm inner diameter..
then make 16x1.5mm left hand tap..


Shave a bit (1~1.5mm) or 24mm length from 31mm shaft diameter



Make inner thread with M16x1.5 left hand tap



Install bearing sleeve to spindle using fire torch..
Heat up till its easy and drop by its self to spindle, use pliers to do this..




Install e36 bearing dust cover
and trim backing plate to fit e46m3 front caliper carrier




Install e36 wheel bearing, cap, bearing nut and locking bolt
use blue Loctite for bearing nut and locking bolt

Rear brake installation

Backing plate mod (easy way), just flatten outer & trim to fit e46 325/328i rear caliper
and brake hose line installation




...OR...

Backing plate mod that I've done... marrying e46 325.328i (outer) & e30 (inner) backing plate
and brake hose line installation





Use stock e30 caliper bolts
and shave a bit upper bolt till flush or raised max 1 mm from bracket/adapter




Install backing plate, wheel bearing and hub..



Install the rotor, caliper and 12 mm spacer..
Using spacer to compensate narrower rear track width (+2.5mm than stock)
in total will be same with front 12 + 2.5 = +14.5 mm
Because, I used 17x7.5 et.27 all 4 corners
