Switching from staggered to non-staggered wheels

Sup E46 Members,

I'm currently running 19" staggered m3 wheels on the pre-facelift sedan. I'm thinking of getting a set of the VMR v710 non-staggered 19", but I just put a new set of tires on my current setup. which is running a set of 225/35/19" in the front and 245/35/19" in the back. My question is, do you guys think I'll be ok by mounting these tires on the 19" VMR v710 wheels without a problem? I really don't want to spend the extra cash on a set of new tires.

Thanks!

225/245 would be fine on a 8.5" wheel. This is all within the recommended width for the wheel.

@VMRWheels, The reason why I want to non staggered is because I want to lower the car and if I get the in staggered I'm afraid I wont be able to do that. Do you guys have an offset on the v710 19" staggered that will let me lower the car? My fenders are rolled and cut, but it still rubs a bit when going over a bump too fast or if I have more that 2 people in the car. I'm also afraid if I go to the non staggered it will look weird with the fenders being brought out! Who knows, go down to 18" maybe?

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

We do offer a fitment for your Sedan.

8.5 +35 front with a 235 tire and a 9.5 +45 rear with a 245/255 will work. Depending on how low you are, alignment, and tire manufacturer, 255's may cause some rubbing issues.

I would recommend looking into a narrow tire such as the Falken FK452 or Toyo T1R so that you have more room to work with.

Where can I get the ones you mentioned above? I'm not interested in the tires right now as I have brand new tires(lower than 600miles on them). 225/35 245/35 Continentals, If you say I can get away with the wheels you mentioned above set up for my sedan with the tires I have I'll definitely get them..

BTW the v718s are looking sexy (=.. Have these on the same set up?
