Hello everybody,

I'm looking for new 18 inch rims for my 3 series E46 sedan (without bodywork) for this season. I have imagined 225/40/18 tires. The tires can be stretched.
What would be the ideal ET (offset) for front 8.5 and back 9.5 so that it is flush with the wheel arch ?!

So many people say 9,5 ET35 will not fit with bodywork at the rear another one say it will fit.....
So what is really the perfect fitment for a nice flash ?

Thank you in advance and have a nice day

Check this thread.

As I said there, I had a set of ARC-8s in 18x9.5 ET35 and the test fit that I did led me to believe that that just wasn't happening. The 18x9 ET30s that I now have on the car required fender rolling to not rub on big bumps.
