I've seen pics of them on a coupe. Looks wicked.
Needs lots of stretch.
Flip em around and get offsets. 7 wheels are always aggressive on a E46.

flip em around as in look on the back for the stamp... it will most likely be some 3 between 40 and 15. usually preceeded by ET or the ET will be on another spoke. iirc, OE rims its usually stamped between the bolt/stud holes.

ET24 at 10" wide is gonna be a very tight fit. mega stretch and prolly fender pull and or some camber. but man it would look soooo sick.

Very tight fit. If you aren't slammed, have a relatively firm suspension, and have no fender lip you are good to go.

281i.....?

Wish it was mine requires a serious stretch and a lot of fender work!

Get four fronts. Still needs stretched tires but minimal fender work.

I wanted to find a set of those so bad but couldn't find a set for less than like $3k. So jealous, OP. That'll look sick.

Those rears are pretty aggressive. That's about the same width and offset we recommend for M3s. It probably would be better to go with two sets of fronts and run a narrow tire to avoid having to do a whole lot of fender work.

2 deg neg camber, aggressive fender roll and 225/35 or 235/35 in the rear and it will work. not recommended for a daily driver though.
