Anyone on here with a Sakhir Orange m4 with TE37s? Or any f82 on TE37s? Been wanting to get some just not sure what color nor what the correct wheel specs would be. Would be great if anyone can lead me to the right direction

In the factory TE37 color options, I think the top two color choices people run are the matte black and formula silver. The problem is just finding a set for sale in your spec/colors.

Finding TE37s in the proper sizes for F80/F82 is really difficult because they are either discontinued, not in stock anywhere in the USA, or you have to custom order them from Japan which takes 6 to 12 months to receive.

Sizes depend on if you want 18", 19", or 20" sizes. There are also a ton of different variations of TE37s ( like SL, Saga, OG, M Spec, Ultra, etc). There are discontinued sizes out there that I have not listed below but finding a full set is near impossible.

These are the most current options available that you might be able to find, but good luck!

18" Sizes
9.5" +23 front, 10" +25, 10.5" +22, 11" +34. Most people run either a square 18" setup with 10 or 10.5" wheels, or a mixture of the 9.5" +23 front and 11 +34 rear tire. 18 inch sizes arent the greatest for the F80/F82 chassis and were actually designed around the E90/E92 chassis where you can get away with a lower offset wheel.

19" Sizes" Arguably the best option for the F80/F82 chassis for offsets and tire choices. I run option 1.
1. 9.5" +21 front, 10.5" rear +35 is the best option for widest tires and you can fit a 305mm rear tire in the back without any problems.

2. 9.5" +23 or +21 front, 10.5" rear +22 works but the rear offset is too much and only allows you get a 275 or 285 wide tire in the back (all depending on ride height and camber adjustment).

3. 9.5" +23 or +21 front, 11" rear +37 is the widest wheel and most find that a 295 tire is the widest rear tire you can run easily, some have success with a 305 wide tire.

4. aggressive fitment for track cars 10.5" wide +35 front and rear with a 295/30/19 tire.

20" Sizes: Not many good sizes at all in the current Ultra M-Spec option
1. 10" +30 front and 11" +32 rear - the front is an aggressive track fitment suitable for 275 wide tire. The rear 11 +32 has an offset that is a little too aggressive to fit a 295 or 305 tire. A 285 wide tire would fit but looks too stretched in an 11" wheel in my opion.

Thanks so much man! The main issue I got now is just the whole spec on the wheel. So many offsets it can be overwhelming. I think it's just based on what you want to do with your car. In my case I just want my lowered f82 to be on TEs since it's just a street car no track nothing. Just need to find who has those specs I want near me or have them shipped out if that's the case. Thanks again for the help and explaining

your ideal TE37 wheel spec all depends on the type of tire and what tire specs you want to run.

If you want to run stock size M4 tires (either 255/275 or 265/285mm stagger), then you would need a different wheel offset than if you wanted to go to a wider tire setup.

Since a 275 mm wide rear tire really doesnt provide enough traction for even a stock M4, it would be best to go with a wider tire setup than factory.

Here is my setup:
Front: 9.5" wheel with +21 offset with a 5 mm wheel spacer, 265/35/19 Michelin PS4S tire
Rear: 10.5" wheel with +35 offset with a 10 mm wheel spacer, 285/35/19 Michelin PS4S tire

Note: the wheel spacers are option but provide for a real "flush" fitment with my suspension and alignment specs (yours may differ slightly based on camber settings).
