The E9X 18" M3 wheels are staggered, but mine are all-rears (18x9 et+26)

Depends on your wheel specs, but I'd say you're good to go.

I shaved my rear fenders, I'm sure a good roll would work too with stretching tires. I was originally on 245/35's (rubbing with ppl in the car) and now went down to 225/40 (I think) with no rubbing
