I'd try to find a set of 640m, and fit them with 235/40/18 fronts and 255/35/18 rears.

513m’s would be my choice, i think they look great on the M2.

Yes 513m are lookers but rarity, lightweight and wider widths make them IMHO too good & wasted on winter duty.

I have a set of 513m and will use them for summer DD/TD

... Your wheel option suddenly looks even better. Will you need to get tpms vales installed and calibrated separately? Just trying to gauge the overall cost.

Nice - I think reasonable dish / concave JDM-esque wheels look good on BMW m-cars esp M2.

Despite what the webpage says, I'd be wary of and get proof that 18" B1's are compatible with F8x brakes though....

Are intending to stay gold and what offsets are going for F&R ??

TPMS can be got from eBay for circa £100 usually, they will jsut automatically calibrate with the car.

I have OEM 18" 640m 8.5"/9" wheels with OE BMW star rated Mich PA4 235/40/18 all round - one winters use with v few miles TBH.

Alloys are mint as had cosmetic refurb to change colour to Orbit Grey - PM me an offer if you're looking for a cheaper OEM winter set [wheels, tyres, TPMS and centre caps]

Photos of the wheels on the car from last winter - to give you an idea of how 640m OG look.

Anyone know a part number for these o ensure I get the right ones? I'm also assuming M2 competition ones are still the same....

Have you checked realoem it’ll give you the part number there for your vehicle

If you ticked the big brake option you’ll need 19” wheels
