Exclamation New wheels for 00' 323i

Alright I wanna get a really mean wheel set up after I get back from my deployment and I am wondering what is the widest width I can go and offset also the tires to match Ik I will need them stretched I already have my fenders rolled so I will not need to do that. I also have my mind set on 18s.

I'm running 18 X 8.5 wheels on my 00 E46 323i; Tires are 225/40/18 on Beyern Mesh wheels. Just my two and a half cents worth...

We recommend 18x8.5 ET35/18x9.5 ET45 on your car. Since your fenders are rolled you could probably get away with a 265 tire in the back, but that's about as aggressive as I'd recommend to you.

really depends on your suspension setup. Are you running coilovers?
