Another "will this rub?" thread. (245/35/19 on E46 Sedan)
 
As in title, getting a set of 19x8.5 f (225/40/19) & 19x9.5 r (245/35/19) maybe a 235 if the 245's wont work. I'm hoping the 245's do work so I can get exactly what I want.

I think the most important item you need here for people to answer is what, is the offset of the wheel?

I am currently running 18x8.4 235/40/18 with a ET40 very close to inside and outter lip, but enough room I feel I could go an inch larger (not wider)

33 in the rear

Almost guaranteed it will rub. 19x9.5 ET33 is very aggressive. You might get away with 225 or 235.

19x9.5 ET33 is pretty aggressive in the rear of an E46. Also the tire sizes you have are too tall for your car. The correct sizes would be a 225/35/19 or 235/35/19 for the front, and a 245/30/19 or 255/30/19 for the rear.

ahhhh... yeah "30 weight sounds nice" jk lol gotcha! the 245/30/19 actually sounds like what I'm looking for! Thanks for the imput!

only problem I have ran into would be the 245/30/19 size is very rare and seems to be special order only, ie: more expensive. I think I will still try for the 235/35/19.. here's my old sedan with rear m3's (1" wider rim and lower offset im thinking) with 235's stretched on them, had to roll the fenders on that car, trying to avoid that this time.

new car the wheels are going on.
