I'm getting 19" x 8.5 5x100 37 offset rims all around for my e46 323CI
2000 convertible.

I want to put 235/40/19 tires on them.
I have OEM sport suspension ( already lowered)

Will this work? or will the tires be rubbing the wheelwell?

Also is it possible to go 255/40/19 in the rear?

Please help.

5x100 is not BMW bolt pattern... its 5x120.

i think u should run a 35 a/r profile instead of 40...
Good Luck!

the reason i said 40 is because of a thicher rubber for a better ride

if u know its a better ride i'm guessing you'll know that your speedo will be off. anyhow i was also thinking about fitment issues...
