bolt pattern yes, rear offset no, you will have rubbing issues in the rear. I've seen it done, but with fender modifications.

It's the offset of the wheels that will cause it to rub not the height of the tires. Like Wasabi said it can be done but you will need to do some modifications to make it work.

Here is a coupe with m3 19"
http://tuningdatabase.com/displayimage.php?album=3&pos=24

It has a stock tire size and stock suspension. He said it doesnt rub, but if he is going to lower it, it will rub.
Also, he has a coupe which can fit slightly wider tires.


I do not recomend you getting those wheels. They are cheap because they are very hard to sell. They only properly fit e46 m3, so you will have hard time selling them.

lol the only way to fit those rims/tires onto ur car is to roll your fenders, why are you trying so hard. haha

M3 rear offset for 18x9 inch wheels is et26. This will cause the wheel to stick out more out of your wheel well as the rear axle on the M3 is a tad shorter. Making the fenders bigger - pulling will fix the problem, you will need to pull them by ca 20mm (2cm) - less than 1 inch.

my suggestion to you would be to get 4 front wheels which are 18x8, et 47
