Will 745 rims fit a e46 sedan without modification? Whats a good price?

Saw some rims online, I was thinking of picking them up, stock 745 rims. What do I need to make them fit? Also what is the price range for those rims + tires?

you answered your own question

as for price, it varies from place to place. It's what local markets will bear.

Yea those are the ones. Do you know if I need smaller than stock tires to fit a e46 or can I use the stock tires?

To fit the your sedan you'll have to go with 225 35 19 in the rear to make them fit

I use staggered CSL staggered wheels and the rear is where you usually run into trouble on the offset. My stock offset for my 325i was -48 on an 8" rim. My CSL reps are 9" wide (1/2" thicker on each side of the rim) and the new offset is -38, a 10mm difference. So my wheel sticks out 1/2" plus 10mm closer to the hub and i still have 8mm to spare. Find the offset and width of your wheels now and compare with the width and offset of the wheels you want. I hope that helps.

225/35 is waaaay smaller than what you'll need. I've got 225/35 on mine on my sedan and I've got 3/4" between the tire and fender and I'm slammed. The wheels themselves are what give problems. If you want a nice flush look then these are great.

Also, specs for these say 19x9 and 19x10, but they actually measure 9.5" and 10.5". ET 24 all around.

K. Some of us enjoy just making our cars look good rather than trying to get to the next red light faster.

No, 225/35 is about right for those wheels. Maybe 235s. Yours are narrower and don't poke the same way, so everything is different. These need a stretched tire, with stock tire sizes it will be absolutely undrivable, even for 20 feet.

Alec, my sig is outdated. I'm on style 95s now.

225/35 is too much of a stretch. I can see some of the barrel of my wheels.

And yes I changed the green air cap. :p

K.

I admit, I didn't want this much of a stretch, but whatever.

Is all what from rubbing? The scratches on the wheels? No. The previous owner was the master of curbing wheels lol.
