ASA JH3 18x8" et20 fitment question

Hi guys, someone local is selling these ASA JH3 18x8" 5x120 et20 wheels for cheap without tires. Being them without tires, I cant mount them and test fit it. I'd like to run them as my spare set and my current style 44's are getting old.

Not sure if the ASAs would fit because of the et20.
I have searched a lot and I found that people are using same wheels but on 17" on e46s and with et40 offsets.

I am on the coupe sports suspension and dont plan to lower it.
Any inputs on fitment, looks and tire size are appreciated.

Thanks

I'm in a similar situation as you, except the wheels I'm looking at are 18x9.5 et 22. If you decide to get the wheels you will need to do a lot fender work to make them fit. The tire size you chose is another important factor, but I can't give any advice since I've yet to try a similar setup.

Yah, for a 9.5 it would be a lot of work, but for an 8" I might get away with slight fender roll or no modification at all.
If not I will just wait for a less aggressive offset wheels to come for sale.

The reason I am going 18" is: 17's look too small and the wheel well is always gapped. 19's are not practical and I am not going to compromise with the hard ride I will be getting with them on. Also, I am not going to lower the car or run crazy cambers. I am going to stick with stock alignment and sports suspension. Hence, looking for 18's.
