My Ride: e46 cabrio
Hi newbie here

Hi ive googled this question and for the life of me cannot find the answer,everytime i ask a tyre or wheel specialist im told a different answer,so hopefully someone on here can help me.
I have an un lowered un rolled pre facelifted bmw e46 cabrio, ive bought a set of Offset 35, Stud Diameter 120, Rim Width (all four) 9.5J ,19' alloys.
Will i have to roll the arches ? do i need spacers ?
and what tyres do i need.
Thanks for your time,hope you can help.

Just look on tirerack for good all season high performance, 19 s will most likely rub, just get your fenders rolled and you should be good to go, enjoy : thumbsup:

Go to tirerack.com and put in your rim measurements. It will give you tire sizes appropriate, also you can try contacting tirerack.com by phone or CHAT NOW, top right, they'll hook you up. There's a tirerack guy on this forum as well, who is more than helpful, Tim, Jeff or Jason, can't remember.
