I believe so, but they'll stick out a bit.

Not a chance in getting the rears to fit.

4 front wheels, yes.

is that a real m3 or just a lookalike? I have a 96 318is

Nope it's a 328is. Basically what he did, he pulled the fenders as well as rolled them, so it's a "widebody in the rear". If you don't do that the fender will not reach over the edge of the tire, and you will have a SUV-look. Basically you will have to calculate the measurements so that you pull the fenders just enough.

I would not reccomend doing this unless you are not driving the car in the winter and you are willing to spend cash to do it proper at a bodyshop, because I'd be concerned about rust.

its an all season car - and i was hopin just to take one set of rims off and put another on. Not going to happen with the rears then?

Yeah I mean at 96 (if you drive all year round), you're developing rust already with our climate here in Toronto, doing that would be just risking it.

just out of curiousity, will these rims fit a e46 non-m3 coupe?

To do that kind of bodywork, it will cost thousands. Paint will likely be necessary.

He also looks to be running some gay Euro stretched tires, which such for performance. If you wanted to run real tires, my body work estimate above it accurate.

Those rims will only fit M Roadsters, M Coupes, and E46 M3s.
