Not without modifications - the offset is too far off.

Not sure what a finder problem is?

Probably means "fender" and agreed, offset is wayyyyyyy too low for a sedan.

wrong HB at 74.1,,, vibration issues on top of an already bad ET. But maybe you should buy them anyway because you can report back that it was a bad buying decision, this will help future members from making your mistake.

start researching, you will figure it out, or buy them and figure it out.

They make concentric rings for the hub, that's not what I was asking about, it's tire to fender Clarence

The chance of rubbing is better than 99%.

go to website, Will They Fit.

please stop giving dangerous information. A 205-40-18 is not a safe option even in a XL tire because they are only rated at 1168lbs. this is well below the safe threshhold for a e46 axle.

I fit 225/45-17's on a 17x8 et20 on the front of my lowered E46. With a little bit of negative camber, no rubbing at all.

What is your suspension set-up? Are you lowered?
