They look off offset to me. Gonna stick out and rub against the fender.
I made this mistake buying 5-series wheels and have my back right wheel rub against my fender

It's a good deal but they won't fit on your car. I had m3 wheels on my 323i and they rubbed. If anything you have to roll your fenders or put spring spacers in.

My Ride: Fst'r then your e46
dont listen to any of them. I have a 323ci with m3 wheels. But I made the set up work with NO rubbing even with people in the back. Maybe coupes are wider? I dont know

Buy the wheels, trade the rears for fronts to someone on the forums, there will be someone who is trying to run a squared set up.

Yea I paid $650 for these same wheels with tires, sold the rear tires for $200, I noticed some hefty curbing on those man, take a good look before you buy, you may find better ones next week, if you can wait. Or whatever, you could get them for emergency and always get rid of them later for just about what you paid.

I have these same wheels for my winter set however, the previous owner rolled the rear fenders and I went with a proxes 4 225/45ZR-18 on the front and 235/40ZR-18 on the rear with almost no rubbing. I say almost because I have KSport suspension and at the time I originally got those wheels my rear dampers were not exactly set. Now that I have them to a little bit more agressive setting, there is absolutely no rubbing at all, unless I get up on two wheels. j/k

so...as far as I can tell, roll the rear fenders and stretch a smaller tire on there and it'll most likely work.
