Will these 19" wheels fit my sedan okay?
I'm looking into purchasing a set of wheels with tires on them. Will they fit onto my 2000 328i sedan without rubbing? If not, what would I have to do to make them work? My car is at stock level. here's the ad for the wheels: http://newyork.craigslist.org/lgi/pts/3307441406.html
Thanks a lot

im not good with non-m's but it should work just fine.

Jeez thats gonna require a fender roll. And maybe a different tire size on rear,
But it can work for sure, with a little dial in....

Fronts are fine

If i get the fenders rolled do you think the tires would be okay?

At stock height you might get away with it, but those wheels & tires at stock height is probably not a great look.

I think you will rub for sure with those tires and that offset.
A more narrow tire and maybe camber work will be needed.
If lowered

I know with a stock body, 19" wouldn't look great but I am getting mtech bumpers and side skirts which should make it look for proportionate. Anybody have experience puting bigger wheels on a sedan?

i had the exact same setup

except my rear offset was 45mm with the same tire size and was lowered on HR sport suspension

i put 5mm spacers (effective offset 40mm) after i rolled the fenders, it still rubbed from time to time,

so, can you imagine 33mm offset?

like i said, you may get away with it on stock height, but big rims and narrow tires with a large wheel gap to fender will not look good, especially with the tire/rim out past the fender, so a narrower tire (stretched) and camber work will be necessary if you want to lower it.

I tried to put 19 in. on mine, but it wasted more gas and rubbed. Not worth compromising the ride quality. They look nice but not a fit for 3 Series.

Thanks for the input everybody
