Fitting 19x10.5 et25 on e46 non-M

Yes you read that right. I know I'll have to shave the fender lips and raise the rear a little AND stretch the tire, dial in more negative camber... But will that be enough? Might even machine off 5mm of the hub to bring it to et30. Right now with a 19x9.5 et45 I am nowhere near flush, I'm hoping the new setup won't stick out atrociously.

Poke and stretch / wheel fitment gurus, help me do it without excessive bodywork!

Imagine your car with a 20mm spacer.. almost.

Throw a 245/35/19 on it and I'm pretty sure you can make it work.

this can be done but the 10.5 has to have a low offset. i put a 10 VB3 at et33 and with no tire it came to the fender. i am sure with some camber you can do it but i would suggest running 245-255 max 30/35 series anything more and you cannot lower you car drasticly.

OR

if you getting wheels with custom offsets have the offset in the 40s

I was sticking to a 255/30 at most. I'll have to crunch numbers once the wheels arrive

Alright it's down to either a 245/35/19 Kumho SPT or FK452; or a 255/30/19 Toyo T1R or Kumho SPT. I'm hoping to pull it off with the 255. Going to see how tight the wheels fit when they arrive next week. Can't wait!!!
