18x8.5 +38

I have asked some people, but I just want to double and triple check if these wheels will fit on my non M '01 E46.http://www.discountedwheelwarehouse....%2Es&pID=43611 I'm going with 235/40/18s and I'm on stock springs. VMR wheels told me they'll fit, I just want to double check, because you can never be too sure when ordering wheels online. Does anybody havew the size on there E46 that are willing to post a pic so I can see what it looks like? Any help is appreciated.

We offer wheels in 18x8.5 ET40 as well as 18x8.5 ET35. The ET40 takes up more room on the suspension side than those (2mm) and the ET35s poke out more than those (3mm). Those literally will be in between our most inward and outward recommended specs. You will not have any issues running them with a 235/40/18 tire.

In the title it says "MRR GT1 18x8.5 Black Machine Lip 5x120 +38 72.6" What does the 72.6 mean?

72.6mm is the hub bore on the wheels. Since the wheels bore is 72.6mm that means you will not need any hubcentric rings to run them.

ET38 is more inside the fenders than ET35. Lower offsets = wheel sticking out further for a given width. You will be fine.
