Don't forget to take your meds.

i just pointed to that thread casue people jump on the wagon when they didnn't even have a clue on the oem rims or experience or have/had a set.

i was sure csl replicas only were made (9.5 rears) for m3 and coupe(with a lil modification) but maybe they started selling them with a different offset to fit sedans..but it seems people still have problems with them without modification.

http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showpos...46&postcount=1

so are these csl replicas being bought by the op from another sedan owner have the correct offset for sedans?

You'll notice that several of us have asked that exact question...I don't think we have a definite answer yet.

Going back to the original question, if they fit on an '04 325i sedan they will fit on an '00 323i sedan. If the prior owner had problems, you will have problems. If he didn't, you shouldn't.

19x9.5 rear is no problemo these days especially with the high 40-45 offset in the rear. I don't know why people keep saying it can't be done. And these reps have been out forever now.


xjunmoonx 19x9.5 VMR CSL reps with 265/30/19 tire, no fender rolling or modification to the fender at all, on tein basics and dumped!

You need to add, with massive amounts of camber... People daily drive their car and like to keep their tires for over 6-8 months.

OK, look:

This has to be one of the most beautiful automotive photographs I've seen in a long time. Props to the owner & the photog!

Gauranteed this car rides like she!t on anything but the smoothest roads. And only then in a straight line. Don't even think about serious lateral G's without rubbing......even without back seat passengers!

OK, so I'm an old fart.

I do understand the interest in slamming a car for looks. I just hope folks understand that there is a very real compromise between ride quality & appearance when travelling this road. I drive mine hard and appreciate the handling/appearance trade-off made by the factory. To completely sacrifice the outstanding ride & handling we have with these cars ....STOCK....well, it's not about performance at that point, simply image.

To each his own.

dont mean to hijack this thread, but i have a set of iforged bought 2nd hand. lip to lip the rear rims measure 28cm...which is like almost 11inchs...but i think its probably not the correct way to measure width. dont know the exact offset, but the inside rub and not the outside. I've taken pics of the wheel as it currently sits. If i go with a 10mm spacer, will i still be able to tuck the tyres under the fender?

If that's the case Naruto19, that's not cool! I got mislead when reading through old threads. From my experience, 255/35/18 with ET45 lowered when alignment is within spec, it will rub..

Correct. +45's at OEM spec alignment and lowered could possibly have rubbing issues. If you are slammed like the red sedan, you wont need to ever worry about rubbing because that car has a lot of camber in the rear. The tire is basically sitting inside the wheel well now.

I'm on 18x9.5 rim, ET45, 255/35/18 and I had to roll mine to just clear(wagon). For you to say you have 15mm more clearance just amazes me. You're llike 5 mm's away from running M3 wheels!
Yup, it's true. I put a 10mm spacer in the back for an effective offset of +30. Granted, I am rubbing on bumps but I am going to roll the fenders to fix the problem.

With the +45 offset rear you will be fine. There are tons of sedans with the 19x9.5 running around. Let me know if you have any questions.

Skinny 245's on a 9.5" +45 would fit fine. People do that all the time here at VMR. Just be aware of what tires have wider shoulders. Since you are on a cup kit, rolling your fenders is a good idea.

i was lower than jun with stock camber specs in the rear. i wouldnt throw that assumption out

TOE is what kills your tires more.. if your toe is off, if like youre dragging your tires so to speak. with camber it will definitely shorten the life but id rather have camber and a toe at oem specs
