Rim question?

So I'm picking up a set of 18x8 front and 18x9 rear rims for my 2002 325ci just wondering if they will fit on the rear or if I will have to roll my finders??

They will fit just fine. Now, if you want to put tires on at the same time, that's a different question

The front could probably work, but the rear is going to be more aggressive than I'd recommend. Roll your rears. What tire size were you thinking about using?

Rim question?

They have tires on them already I'm trading a guy straight across for my tires and rims he has them on a 330ci he had to roll his fenders but he has the sport suspension on his car and I don't I was thinking maybe he say a little lower than me because of that so I figured I'd be ok just to be safe I have a fender roller on hand. But I think the rear tires are 255 I can't remember exactly?

What tire sizing is that? Looks kind of tall.

Sounds like the tires are also from an M3. You need a 225/40/18 and 255/35/18 tire. 255/40/18 tires are too tall.
