A 245/35 will be 10mm narrower, but it will be more that 3% outside of your oem specs due to the height.

Awesome thanks!
Can i fit a 19x10" rear with +37 offset? I know it's pushing it but i think it'll look sooo good (I've seen it done on another non-M E46)
I've lipped my guards and looking at getting coilovers aswell to try do all i can to fit them, is there anything else you can recommend to make them fit?

Sorry for picking your brain

I would have to say not without fender work and some pretty stretched tires. But another member has fitted a 19x10 ET37 wheel with -3 Degrees of camber and claimed that he had no rubbing issues. I dont know if he has fender work or not though.
