My Ride: 330Ci Coupe
will it be 100% trusted about fitment of BBS LM on 330ci?[/B]

Tiretrack only offers 18*8 fitment all around (offset +35) on 330ci for BBS LM and the salesman from tiretrack also added that i may have a rubbing issue on front wheel. But so far i went over the forums about this subject, their suggestion seems somewhat too conservative . Even Axis supermesh (it is one good-looking wheel i've ever found on BMW) offers staggered fitment as 19*8.5(front, offset +35) and 19*9.5 (rear, offset +40) and so do other brands. is there anyone who can tell me what other BBS LM's fitments exactly fit 2003 330ci(Spkg) without mods and fender rolled ?

My Ride: too old for this BS
Tirerack offers a gaurenteed fitment, so they are always very conservitive...ET35/8.5" in the front is fine, and ET40/9.5" for the rear might need a fender roll. If you are keeping the stock suspension, you are in the clear.

Hers a simple tool to measure how much room you really have. Enter the stock wheel infprmation, then the ones you want, and measure yourself w/ a metric ruler.
