19x11 Squared Possible?



Is it possible with cut fenders and aggressive camber dialed in?
I know of the red M coupe that ran 19x10.5 squared.

If you guys think it'll work I am down to be the guinea pig
Stretch and poke is alright with me, as long as its not mexiflush

11s up front sound tough. I suppose it would work with some stretch and poke.
In for answers too. Curious about this one.

You would probably have to run -4 degrees camber and a 225/30 on a 11 inch rim which probably isn't going to last. One little pothole your rim is done. Not worth it

it will work, just gotta find the highest offset you can run with out hitting the coils. Lots of camber and run 235/35 tires will do the trick It wont be mexiflush... It can be done, keep us posted!

Will he be able to steer? Carry anything in the trunk? Date a gf on other side of speedbump?

...and you didn't ask, OP, but obviously, from a stock setup, you'll be much, much slower...if you care about that sort of thing. Damn, you're in CA...I was going to challenge you to a drag race. If you got those guys, I think I'd stand a good chance!

i remember seeing someone running 10.5 varrstoen lm reps all around on his m3 and that was pushing it to the limits. 11 all around is gonna need probably twice as much camber as that guy was running

You can put any width wheel on an E46 if you don't care about it sticking out beyond your fenders and rubbing on bumps.

If you want to drive faster than parking lot speeds, then no. Personally, I don't see the point of making your wheels wider than what fits. If you care that people can see the full width of your tires, then you should probably lower your car some more.

Silly dmax. He's obviously a farmer. OP, you'll probably need a dually setup.

That would be pushing it. 10.5 is the widest I've seen up front and the widest rears I've seen on an e46 m3 was 13.5.

My staggered set up is beginning to feel old to me...16x13 in the front and 16 x 16 in the rear. Rears are fine, but the fronts are rubbing the back of the wheel well when I turn...and my turning radius is limited now.

Can I just remove some of the metal from the front and rear of the front fenders and rivet the wheel well lining back in somehow? Would that look stupid or kind of awesome? I'll do anything for wider!

i few years ago their was a widebody with a 14" wide wheel

on a e-46 m3 ride he came from new jersey...he was a worker in one of the speed jobs their....and i was told on my car i could put 10.5 wide wheels if i did a wide body... but i think the 14" wide wheels in the rear is a bit much i say 13" wide wheels is wide enough in the rear and they were going to be 20'ies instead of my 19"
