Best Fitment for e46 non-M

I have a 2002 325ci and I am thinking of buying 19" Avant garde m310s
Fronts are 8.5x19offset 35mm
Rears are 9.5x19 offset 33mm

Probably gonna run tires: Front 235/35/19 and Rear 245/35/19.

I am worried of the fitment if I have to do any modification? and will it rub?

Thank you
I think your rear offset will be too aggressive and you may need to fender roll, also depends on the size of your tires...

I just bought AG M310's and the best fitment is as follows (no need to roll fenders):

Front 19x8.5 et35 ; Tires 235 35 19
Rear 19x9.5 et43 ; Tires 245 35 19

Check out Pyspeed.com, they have a great chart

If you look at my picture, I ran 33 offset rear without any rubbing or modification to the fenders. Coupe fenders tend to be a little more forgiving than sedans from the factory, at least with the E46.

Hey guys just wanted to THANK YOU ALL especially to Weissguy you made my decision easier and I can't be more happier with what I did. I bought m310's 19 inch with the same tires sizes as discussed above and it looks amazing!!! I mean 19's are a perfect fit I love them and can't stop looking at them. There is no rubbing at all, and enough space between fenders and wheels.

Thanks again, much appreciated

The car looks awesome with those wheels!

I emailed Avant Garde about the M359 center cap. Not sure if it's the same as that wheel:

"The M359 uses a 68mm diameter center cap. This is the same spec as the OEM BMW center cap."

I pulled the trigger on my M359s and Continental DWS ($200 off the tire set on an eBay coupon code) yesterday.

These are the caps I went with. The lowest priced non-OEM that still look like the OEMs, and are 68mm. Again, don't know if your model takes the same as the M359.

Little longer shipping time from overseas, but my tracking email says it should be a little quicker than the eBay estimate.

Nice, I have the continental DSW wheels on my style 68 17" Staggered wheels that I am trying to sell - I went ahead an ordered some center caps decals from ecs tuning since I had store credit from them - will update with pics once I get them.

Yes this is regular 3 series bmw. Rims are avant garde m310s and they are 19s. I have a coupe and its fine no rubbing, unless you hit a bump on a super high speed. 19s look great tho
