18" Front & 19" Rear

Im thinking of doing 18x8.5 in front with a 1.5" lip, and 19x9.5 with a 3.5" lip in rear... Anyone have pics of this setup, or atleast anything close? Also what would my offsets have to be?

Next ?? - Im going to try and tuck 275's in the rear with my fenders rolled and maybe some negative camber.... Is it possible??

I'll also be adding some race springs, mayb even coils...

Any input appreciated...

Thanks in advance

i'm pretty sure it will rub. go to a body shop and have them do a custom widebody by extending your fenders. the guy at the body shop i went to showed me pictures of him doin a custom widebody on a rx7. looked legit, but never seen it on an e46

Im kinda liking V714's... I think lol. The reason for 18-19 is because it will definetly add an aggresive azz stance to it.. But i might jus go with 19's

I am not sure but if your car is a sedan, you might have issues with a 265 with no rolled fenders. Coupes can take the wider tires better. If you carry any passengers in the back of the car and want to run 19's with 265 then you better get the fenders rolled.

its true


sedans are more narrower then coupes, the rear wheel well on the coupe accommodates a much wider tire then the sedan. so be wary when buying wide rims and watch out for the offset very carefully.

don't do it. Just buy the correct offsets for a sedan (ET 45), a 255 width tire for the rear, and 19"s all around. Then hope you don't rub. 275s with no widebody=constant rubbing. I personally don't like v714 or v715...only vb3 and v710 and linea corsa rims look nice to me.
