17x? 18x? et? spacers?

The widest set up for your E46 is either a 17x9" ET42 square with a 255/40/17 tire or 18x9" ET42 square with a 255/35/18 tire. Either set up will need a 12mm spacer in the front. If you were using a street tire I would say that you could get by with a 5mm spacer but the R compound tire would need the wider spacer. Either of these set ups will need camber plates in the front to fit the wider front tire. Down the road a 265/35/18 tire can fit with enough negative camber in the front and fender rolling in the rear.
