i think coupes can run up to 10" with no issues.
sedans 9.5"
offset has to be like 42 or something like that.

if you are going to run a streched tire and your not too slammed you wont have a problem with a 10 inch wheel. I would say 245's in the back.

A 10" on a sedan, a 245 section on a sedan, is asking for trouble.
1. That tire will barely fit, if at all
2. 10" is too much for a sedann coupes are tight with a 10 let alone a sedan.

Welcome! With the 9.5 you will most likely not have any rubbing issues. It all really comes down to the offset you go with and the tire you choose. If you want to fit 10s in the back be prepared to roll and possibly stretch your fenders. Let me know if you need any help with with getting a set. We have tons of choices for your E46.
