hey all,
ive just rencently bought csl wheels for my 320ci, i put the rears on tonight and it doesnt look like it will work at all lol. they stick out way further then the whole gaurd. If i put some camber on it will it clear the gaurd and allow me to lower it a bit ? or have i bought the completly wrong wheels ?

It looks like you bought M3 fitment wheels. They are going to be overly aggressive for your Non M.

+1 In order to get them to fit, you most likely will have to do some fender modification and/or run a stretched tire

19x8.5 ET35 square fits nicely on the E46, it's pretty aggressive but looks great. VMR V710s are similar in style to the CSL wheels and would look amazing on your car. MRR also has the GT7 that is similar in style with a two piece look.

It does look like you have the wrong fitment in the back and they're too aggressive for your car. Please see below for the correct fitment for an E46 non-m.

VMR VB3:
19x8.5 ET40 - 235/35/19
19x9.5 ET45 - 265/30/19

VMR V710:
19x8.5 ET35 - 235/35/19
19x9.5 ET45 - 265/30/19

The above will not cause any rubbing issues and will fit perfectly on the car. The VMR VB3 CSL style wheels are one of the most popular designs since it's inception and you can't go wrong with that choice. The VMR V710 wheels do feature a more modern look and would be a good alternative solution as well

ModBargains is on point! The VB3s are one of our most largely requested wheels. The V710, which is similar in style to the VB3, features one less dual spoke and more concavity, along with a bit of curvature to the spoke design. Both are solid choices!

Hi,

What will be the suitable size for Non-M (MY01 330Ci) with Sportsline CS.16?

Looking at your web site, did not find CS.16 with 19x8.5 ET40 for the front, will 19x8.5 ET35, will it also be fine with Non-M E46s?

Thanks!

The fitment on the Sportline CS.16s is a little bit different, the front wheels will be slightly more aggressive (5mm). The 35 offset fronts will work fine, it would be a nice aggressive set up. The fitment will be:

F: 19x8.5 et.35
R: 19x9.5 et.45

Hope that helps!
