What kind of spacer is needed to make non-m e46 rims fit an e36 m3?

The guy that is going to buy my rims has an e36 m3, and i found out that my rims fit, but with a spacer. Does anyone know how big of a spacer he needs exactly to make it fit? Any help would be great the rims are

well since e36 non-M's and M's have the same body i would say that they will fit an M3 without spacers if they fit a non-M without spacers.

its real hard to fit in 19x9.5 in an E36. If you put in spacers for that rim, you will need to roll and pull your rear fenders. My friend had 18x9 BBS RC Forged and he had to pull his fenders out to make it fit. I doubt those will fit on the E36 M without fender work of pulling. The offset to fit an E36 is anywhere from 35mm-43mm. 35mm you can only fit 235s in the rear with a fender roll and this is on 18x8 BBS LMs. Instead of asking here for an answer, its a E46 board....go to bimmerforums.com (mainly E36s there)

You can fit wider rims or rims with a more aggressive offset on an E46 than you can on an E36. The E36 fenders are not as generous as the E46. I can only imagine you'd need a spacer on the E36 to avoid rubbing the struts/shocks if your rims had a really high offset, but if you did that, you'd almost certainly be rubbing on the fenders really bad.
