Would these fit my E46???

Don't have any wheel specs, but they fit totally fine on that E36 pictured, and thats not a bad deal with tires. I'm guessing they would fit totally fine on my E46 coupe then right?

Yes. Assuming the E36 pictured isn't running any hub adapters, etc.

You don't really have a choice at that price, buy them.

Yes, they would probably fit just fine.

But to tell you the truth, those tires are gone. When someone advertises 40-50% thread in a classified ad you can be sure its time for new tires.
Keeping that in mind, you'll need to pay to remove those old tires anyways.

There are CSL reps on ebay for around $600 shipped, brand new. Something to consider.

I get tires for really cheap at work so im not too worried as long as those last a month ish.

Is the Center bore fine and all tho? And E36s have the same bolt pattern right.

Yes, E46 and E36 share the same center bore and bolt pattern.

There 18x8.5 and 9.5, ET40 front, ET45 Rear with 225 fronts and 255 rears.

So Yeah that sounds pretty much perfect to me. Might get some spacers if they dont look right but im sure they will.

9.5 w/a 45 offset will fit. It *might* need a mild stretch, but I seriously doubt it. Some sedans have fit 9.5's without any modifications and the coupe has atleast an extra 5mm of clearance.

OP: Go for it. If I was in Van city these would already be on my car.

Post pics.
