will 18x8.5 with 15mm offset fit E46 sedan?

will 18x8.5 with 15mm offset fit E46 sedan?

Will it rub lower with eibach pro springs?

I know the sedan fit the 18x9.5 csl rep without rubbing but not sure on the 15mm offset 18x8.5.

An help will be appriciated.

Thanks

There are innumerable posts on this issue.

Offset of only 15 is way off. Most offsets are between 30 and 45, depending upon coupe/sedan, front/rear. I can't imagine 15 working at all, especially if lowered.

No it will not, depending on which place the CSL reps are from the offset on the 9.5 is either 40 or 45

If you are lucky you can fit an 18x8.5 with an offset of 35 but it depends on the tire size
