Wheel Fitment on e46 Coupe (yes another one)

Hey!

Ive heard the coups are able to fit larger wheels then the sedans? is that correct?

I have a 2000 328ci. Car looks good, runs good. I bought it 5 months ago. However, the DUB flashy rims that came on it need to go.

Ive done some reading and i know the M3 Rears will rub without getting the fenders rolled. I found some rims on Kijiji of all places, and they were fit onto his M3 but i wanted to know if they will fit my E46 coupe.

Front:
245/35/19

Rear
265-35-19


Thanks!

Anyone, these are sitting waiting for me! But i dont know if they'll fit for sure, or with what minor mods. The guy selling them says they will fit a coupe, but im unsure.

Maybe the add is gone? I don't see any specific wheels.

Can you post the wheels specs?

Based on the tire sizes though, they are going to have to be marginally conservative. 19x8.5 et35-40 front, 19x9.5 et40-45 rear.

Possibly this link will work?

http:/www.kijiji.ca/v-tires-rims/calgary/19-bmw-rims-and-brand-new-tires/1188954546

Ive contacted the guy for the rim sizes and waiting to hear back. Do Coupe's have different geometry in the rear allowing wider wheels then the sedans?

He keeps telling me it fit his 330ci. I'm doubting that this would fit without heavy modification.

19's on a e46 give a poor quality ride. My friend is selling off his 19's for this reason.

Cool. I'm already running 19s. I'm up in the air about it. But I'm more interested to know if these wheels fit or not.
