Wheel Offset?!?

Just wondering, does anyone know what the wheel offset would need to be on a 265/30/19 wheel in order for it to fit my 2004 320ci?
Thanks

Usually 42 to 45. Suspension can make a difference though.

I have the m sport model, so just the stock springs that came with it. Would that make any difference?

Yeah I got the front end sorted just trying to find what fits on the rear.

Tires can be a factor also. Some have a more rounded side wall, but with your suspension you shouldn't have a problem. If you have passengers in the back and you hit a good size bump you might have some slight rubbing.
I have 265/30r19 conti dw with h&r race springs and an offset of 42 and I don't rub. But I don't ever have rear passengers in my car.

I had fitment problems with 265's on coilovers with a ET45, so that's a no go there... You have to roll the fenders, or better yet, like I did, make them completely flat and seal them so there isn't any rust issues... Honestly your best bet to make that fitment work will be that ET45 fitment though, which we've got tons of wheels like examples from VMR that will work for you here:



I hope that helps!
