e46 Wheels/Tires Question

For the 323CI would the 9.5 inch width on the RPF1's outfitted with 265's cause any problem?

9.5's with 265's will work on a Ci depending on offset and height.

What offset is the wheel?

Offsets? As long as that 9.5" has a 40-45mm offset it would be good to go. With a 265 you might rub if you're lowered.

9.5's on 265's...

IMHO is pushin it, and will rub in the rear if your lowered and don't have offsets in the mid 40's.

I'm runnin 9.5's in the rear on 255/35's with 41mm offsets, lowered/not tucked and they rubbed with passengers in the rear seat and on Hwy dip's in the road surface. Rolled my rear fenders and never had another problem.

I have a 9.5" with 255, rolled fenders and lowered on KWs. I've got a ton of room. I'm thinking of throwing on 5mm spacers in the rear just for kicks until I neventually need new tires then I will get some 265s.
