The M3 rims on the sedan doesn't look very good. If I were you, I would get the OEM 18's that come with the M sport package. I might buy these sometime this summer. Here's a picture..

265 is already has rubbing.

it doesn't matter- the width in the back is not the problem. the OEM e46 m3 wheels have a very different offset in the rear. It will not fit on ANY car except the e46 m3.
