Not to be an ass but use the search tab in these forums. 99% of the time your question has been answered before. Those sizes and offset would fit but bolt pattern won't.

The fitment you selected is correct for the car, however you have the wrong bolt pattern. The BMW fitment is 5x120. The proper fitment for the E46 is the 19x8.5 et.40 and 19x9.5 et.45 if your going to run something like the VMR VB3 which happens to be a fantastic look on the car ;) This will give you a nice flush fitment while not causing any rubbing issues as long as the appropriate tires are run.
