What are your thoughts/suggestions/recommendations?
If you want the stretch to match, do 215/35 front and 235/35 rear. I think you can run a size or so up from those since you're an M.

EVAP do you think 225/35/19 fronts, 245/35/19 rears would fit on those style 95's on a e46 sedan such as yours?

I have mild drop w/ Bilstein PSS9's w/ adjustable rear trailing arms. Fenders aren't rolled either.

My Ride: rubs tires
The 245 would rub in the back. My fenders are rolled and I was running a lot of camber. You'll need fender work to make it work.

I'm glad this thread popped back up. I'm looking for another set of these wheels.

im about to pick up a set, 19x9 fronts, 19x10 rear, with 215/35 front and 235/35 rear. All fenders are rolled, and the rears are very slightly pulled too, im dropped on tein coilovers, what type of issues do you think i will have, if any? Also, since they come with tires and are in excellent condition, how much do you think that setup is worth?

Bumpstops on all 4 shocks/struts? I thought they were already built in, can you elaborate?

Im pretty sure there are oem stock bump stops, but i was under the impression you would be on coilovers.. tuck those style 95's and go a little lower. = gold.

edit: tein coilovers? not sure if they have bump stops or not.

So I finally got the wheels on and fitted.

Rolled the fenders all around and pulled the rears slightly, sitting on tein basic coilovers. I had to raise the rear a bit to stop rubbing on every tiny bump I hit. I might lower the front a bit more:

Hey guys, just did this setup on 2000 323ci.

Really got me on this one, i dented up and pulled my fenders and ruined the paint... And i still rub a ridiculous amount. My rears are wrapped in 235/35/19 hankook v12's

The e46 inner rear fenders are rock solid and dont like to be pulled and the inner lip that you can fold in on most cars, on the e46 its solid as hell

So im about to drop some money into getting metal work done inside the fender and re fabbing the outside of the fender because it warped the **** out of it

):

Ill post pics eventuall

racelands / rokkors are good for the price. but only complaint i'd say is that they dont have any camber adjustability or damping.. however, they go pretty low. so you should pull around -3+- camber easily if you go low enough.

Since this was the only thread i could find relating to the matter, i just bought a set of Style 95's with 215/35's up front and 235/35's in the rear. I'm lowered on H&R Race Springs and my fenders are rolled. Do you guys think i'll run into any rubbing issues in the front or rear?
