E46 M3 ET20 offset fitment help

Hi guys,

Im having some trouble fitting in BBS CH wheels on stock top mount and suspension E46 M3

19x8.5 ET20 front
19x10 ET20 rear

They are sticking out fair bit. ~33mm front
I know stock 19" run
Front 19 x 8 ET47
Rear 19 x 9.5 ET27

Was going to run these tyres
235/35 R19 Front
265/30 R19 rears

Will adjusting camber on a stock top mount let me sit this thing flush?
Has anyone tried putting similar offsets on E46 M3 ?

Appreciate your help

Correct me if I'm wrong but you can't adjust camber on stock top mounts. You can slightly adjust rear camber from the lower control arm but it may not be enough to fit these, and then you'll need alignment. Those aren't aggressive by m3 standards. You have 2 options from what I see, either buy smaller tires which will leave the wheel to poke but tires will sit inside fender depending on size. Or buy camber plates up from and camber arms in the back. Most coilovers will come with front plates but rear arms are a separate thing and a ***** to install alone, and upwards of 500$ to install in my area.

I have the same ET20 CH and even running 275s in the back no problems. I have ST coils, but only mild camber up front and almost none in the rear. The car is adjusted pretty close to stock height as well.
