Exclamation Will these fit an E46?

Hi all,

Im getting an awesome deal on a set of 19 inch staggerred rims for my 99 E46. Its just a premium package...stock suspension.

Im wondering if these will rub at all? Will they be fine or will I have to make some changes?

Here are the details of the rims and tyres:

SIZE : 19 x 8.5 ( F) , 19 x 9.5 (R)
OFFSET : 35 (F) 40 (R)
HUB : 72.6

The tyres are 235 35 R19 (F) 265 30 R19 (R)

Any help would be MUCH appreciated....thanks all !

Can't tell you for sure but I'm guessing they should fit. Your car will look ridiculous with standard suspension and 19s though. Ridamndiculous. Just something to consider.

Yup. I feel that 19s are even too aggressive for an E46 that isn't an M3. I like 18s on E46s and even then it should have a Sport Suspension on it. 19s demand a drop.

I dont mind dropping it...I just dont want the thing to rub as soon as I slap on the 19s...cos money will be hard for the drop for at least a month if i buy the rims....but will definately not mind investing in a drop if need be...after a month or two...

these rims are a great deal...the guy barely had them for 4 months...if i was going brand new would have done 18s

Sorry for the delayed reply buddy...Yup they fit great! Car looks awesome and no drop required - low profile tyres does the trick each time.
