I was looking for some wheels and looked on fitment industries, someone was running Kansei Tandem wheels with 18x9 12 ET on a 2004 330i sedan. I want Kansei Roku which has the same wheels specs 18x9 12 ET but I have a 2001 325i. Will these wheels be possible to run on rear and fronts? Are Post facelift fenders wider than pre facelift? I may have to roll fenders and do some cutting which I know.

There's no change to the fenders.

You'll have to do a lot of modification to make that aggressive fitment work. I'm on 18x9 ET30 and had to roll the rear lips to prevent rubbing.

My old car ran with 18x9 et 35. I was lowered and Running a pretty high camber number both front and rear. rear was probably in the range of -1.5 to -2 no rubbing. Fronts were like -2.0 to -2.5. Idk the exact degrees cuz it was eyeball alignment. id say anything that et40 is safe et38 is pushing it and 35 and lower would need rolling which is a pain or some bigger track spec camber numbers plus really stretched tires. I ran firestone indy 500 255 35 to give u a reference. i wouldnt go any lower then 235 for the stretch because at that point there is really no reason then to be running wider then oem rims. my 2 cents

Thanks so much I think will be running 18x8.5 et 35 for the front and 18x9.5 et 35 in the rear to be safe.
