Question 19" Avant Garde fitment on e46

Hello everyone,

I am a new member here and could not find a thread with answer to my question.

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 ran 19x8.5et35 front and 19x9.5et33 rear on my 330ci without any issues. Check my album. Tires were 225/35R19 and 265/30R19 and they fit perfectly with no rubbing. You could even manage to fit a small spacer for a better fitment. You will be fine.

Nope. And it was sport suspension as well. No need for camber adjustments or anything. It was a very healthy looking fitment.

Yea I loved it, no doubting that. The Avant Gardes did well on the rough SoCal roads too. And not awful to keep clean either.

I'm in Minnesota. I just bought a set of M6 OEM wheels for my dad's 650i and sold a set of high-end wheels from my last car, both shipped, so I am knowledgeable with packing and shipping wheels and tires. Maybe if a set is good I could convince someone to ship.
