No spacers dude...perfect fitment. These wheels r aftermarket made specifically for E46's. The shoes r Nitto 555, 235/40/18 all around. Hope this helps.

Yes. But it takes some work. They are fairly aggressive. 18x8 et13, 18x9.5 et25. Rolled fenders, stretched tires, and some negative camber is the name of the game.

That isn't my car. I personally will be running a non staggered set of M-Parallels. 18x9.5 et25 front, 18x9.5 et15 (with 10mm spacer) out back. I've test fit the wheels, just waiting to buy tires. I am lowered on ST coils. -3 degrees of camber, and rolled fenders.
