Been answered many times but its cool. You need four fronts i believe. Rears wont fit without a bigger parts list.

Someone else qoute me on this but I think the offset is to high in the rears. Its more than just tire rubbing issue if im correct.

Spacers? maybe but I doubt it

You shouldn't have a problem trading those rears for 2 maybe 3 fronts, tho.


Nice rim choice, I hate seeing those ugly ass 19s on real Ms.

more like the offset is too low for the rear..
it can be done..
4 rear wheels have been placed onto a E46 sedan.
its just you need to use smaller tyres

The easiest way to run them is to get four fronts, but if you're going to be doing fender work the rears could possibly work. Especially with the right tire size.

Thanks guys. How about 18x8" ET35.. square setup? Would those fit?
Also, if i bought just rims and tires..what else would i need? Valve stems? TPMS? I don't know if my year had them or whatever..
