Question? Will a 18x9.5 fit on a 330ci rear?

Who has installed a 9.5 wheel (offset 41) in a 330ci? I'm tempting to buy 2 rims to replace my rear Breytons. The tire I wll use will be the same 255/35/18; which is fine and des not rub. Breyton has a picture on their website with a wider rim on the back, but the tire seems about the same size as mine but smaller on their rim.

Here are some of the pictures:

NIIIICEEE!!!!

What is the offset of the rim? I think they only make them 41. If it is not too much to ask, where and how much did you paid for those.

Is your suspension lowered?

Thanks in advance

www.alanie.com/Car/Wash

Yup i have KW adjustable coilovers but i'm almost at the highest ride. I plan to lower about .5 to 1" more soon tho..

I got my wheels from TireRack but i just checked the site and cant find the Magics 18x9.5 anymore. Give them a call and see what they say..

Good Luck!
