Anyone know if 19 9.5 et40 is going to fit in the rear on a e46 sedan? There's quite a bit of stretch (225/35). The car is lowered quite a bit with coils so the tires would sit inside the fenders all the time.

I drive a Coupe with 19x9,5 ET40 at the rear with 255 wide tire. No fenderwork was needed, everything is original. I think that will work on Sedan too. Lowered on KW coils. :thumbsup:

I have these copies of csl front wheels. When I had the rear camber properly adjusted, the rim brushed the guard on lhs. Rolled and all good.

finally reached a decision. previously on my 330, currently on the M3 are standard 19's. CSL style really suits the M3 but distinctive ???? BUT bronze glossy option, quite unique (for now) Photo%2016-01-2017%2C%2014%2051%2013.jpeg IMG_2734.jpeg

Could I run a stock set of 19" staggered style 67's on my 330ci vert without rubbing? Or would I have to roll/cut my fenders?
Depends on the tyre you run.
Front will work just fine. But the rears will require narrower tyres atleast when lowered, unsure if OEM size will work at stock rideheight.

I ran these myself on my previous 330ci.
I ran them with a 25mm (1") spacer up fornt to match the rears.
Used 215/35 front and 235/35 rear if i remember correctly.
Mine was lowered quite a bit as you can see, no fenderwork at all.

Ok thank you. I'm buying some with 255/35/19's on the rear so I might have to raise my height for a bit then until I either roll my fenders or buy new tires.

I***8217;ve got 19***8217;s on my 330xi. Just got it a month or so ago, so I don***8217;t know if the fenders were worked on to allow the wheels to fit. I***8217;ve got Bilstein B8***8217;s (?) all the way around, lowered on H&R springs. I***8217;ve put about 3,000 miles on it and haven***8217;t had any rubbing. Tires are 235/35 ZR19***8217;s Continental Extreme Contacts.
