Have fun fitting 19x10 with a 35offset on the rear of your E36 if your not gonna customize your fenders.

well thats what im asking.....whats the widest? like im just going by what they say on the site

JMW 07-25-2006 11:45 AM

man ...19X 8.5 widest....

tommy (just325is) .. has 19 X 9...but has 10,000$ worth of suspension and camber mods done to make them fit...goodluck..8,5 will even be tight..ure gunna need to maybe do a fender roll

thankyou GQ all i wanted to know......i have had something in mind for my fenders but we'll see

I had 19x8.5 all around on my E36. Tires were 235/35-19.
The car is lowered (Bilstein Sport + H&R Sport).

I had some rubbing - both on the fender lip and inside the wheel well - when hitting bumps on the road.

You should definitely roll the fenders and get the stiffest suspension you can find.

Good luck *th-up*

go h and r race springs...soooo stiff...unless u go coilovers.

When I had my E36, I was running 18x8.5 BBS CH with a 35 offset and you could bearly fit a finger between the tire and the fender. I was lowered on H&R Sports. Right now on my E46 which has way more fender room than an E36 4 door i'm running 19x9.5 in the rear with a 45 offset and I sometimes rub when there's a dip in the road and I have people in the back. So what i'm saying is that..a 19x10 with a 35offset is most likely gonna be too much. Plus a 245 is probably not ideal for that width.

just goin by what the site said, i was hoping i would be able to fit a 19x10 in there didnt think i could......i just love the look of these cars from the back with fat tires

JMW 07-26-2006 11:59 PM

^^^ imposiible without a wide body kit...

$500bimmer 07-27-2006 01:21 AM

if i had a 2dr yes....but 4dr.....waist of my time lol

will it fit? if you stretch and play with the right spacers, you might get it to sit right, but you'll probally have to pull the fenders.
