Do you think this will fit?
 
i have a 2000 328i with performance package....i have H&R SS coilovers. i want to put vmr vb3's on my car 18x9.5x45 on the back and 18x8.5x40 on the front. do you guys think this will rub?

Depending on tire size, but anywhere from 245-smaller should not rub.

We guarantee problem free fitment at stock height, but if you're lowered on coilovers some slight fender work may be required. In any case, if you're lowered just a little bit you probably won't encounter any major issues, however under compression in certain situations there's always the possibility that you could rub. We recommend a 235/40/18 for the front and 255/35/18 for the rear.

Personally I was running an 18x9.5 with a 35mm offset in the rear with a 235/40 series tire with minimal rub. At a 45mm offset out back you should be close, with maybe some contact. Mine was so close without rolling the fenders I had shaved sidewalls. I also ran an 18x8.5 out front with, I think, the same offset or 5mm less with a 5mm spacer to clear the coil-overs, and 225/40. My car is a E46 323i Sedan.

Is the +35mm in the rear close to the inside or outside at all? But I currently have a problem with the front.

I just got done installing the H&R Street Performance SS Coilovers on bogus' 328 and the front tires (stock 328i sport package 225/45R17) are rubbing the collar and lowest coil on the coilovers. Is that normal with stock wheels/tires and these coilovers? Do I just need to get a spacer and call it a day or do an alignment, which I planned to do anyways, and get rid of as much negative camber as possible?

What width were you going with on those ET35s? 9.5? It would be closer to the outside in the rear.

Yeah some coilovers require a spacer (i think 10mm?) in the front for stock wheels. Can't wait to check out the bimmer when he gets back...

Edit: He said you work at a BMW dealership? I might need to make a trip to get my DRL's turned off. They look stupid with angel eyes installed...
