I'm pretty sure you have to have your fenders rolled, but even after that, I'm not sure what the consensus is. Seems like some folks still have rubbing issues on sharp turns and deep dips. Read for yourself below:

As for the ride, it's not that much rougher in my opinion. I just have to drive more carefully to avoid larger potholes in fear of bending the rims.

Thanks a lot for the great threads. I'm leaning towards 19x8.5 all around with something around 235-245 and a slight drop with springs.

Did the wheels come with the M logo sticker as well?

ziggy, this is completely my opinnion so feel free to disregard it, but I think your car would look so sweet if you got rid of the blackout corners and just got regular clears and then powdercoated or painted your current wheels a dark colour like that "shawdow titanium" on ALL ON U's CSL's...

They should. If not, I believe you can buy them from ModBargains or search on ebay.

We would suggest 235/35/19 all around for your E46 sedan, and yes we will include the M logo stickers for you

Need suspension alignment?

First off, I got the 19" staggered setup from Mike@Modbargains, and they look sweet! Thx Mike!

Second, has anyone needed to get the suspension aligned due to the differing offsets? It doesn't look like they are out-of-whack but I figured I'd throw it out there before I start going through rubber. (with the 30 series rears, I don't have that much to go through)

I'll post some pics when I get it cleaned up.

more to come...

SOO.....How would 8.5" 18 inch CSL reps all around fit on a stock 325i suspension. Will it ride way too high?? Will the wheels fill the wheel well more than the stock 16's, or will it look like a 4x4. Newb...want these wheels on my stock 325i! And....will the wheels/tires stick out too wide in the front and look bad with stock bumpers, and what tire size would you all recommend for no rubbing and best look/performance setup.

NJ December 8, 2005 The source of the problem has been ascertained and measures are being taken to replace/repair items as quickly as possible. We are still working feverishly to get back online as quickly as possible.

Unscheduled Downtime

NJ December 7, 2005 Unfortunately, due to a chain reaction of hardware failures, we are currently off-line. We hope to have new hardware in place as quickly as possible to return to normal operation status shortly. Stay turned to this page for announcements and information as they become readily available.

Well, I guess I need to add my second set of CSLs to this thread. Its good to have them back on. The TiAg color-matching is starting to grow on me. Just needed a couple of sunny days to show them off. Here they is:
