Offsets?

So as some of you may know I got some "gotti g1001s" the specs are 17x9.5 et56. I was wondering if anyone knew if those offsets would work on an e46 ? I would be running 16mm spacers so the effective offsets would come out to 41mm, would that work without any rubbing on a 9.5 ? I'm only using the 15mm untill I can order my 46mm spacers !

are they all 4 the same? all 4 are 9.5+56?

in that case your fronts will be a WAY to in. For front, you'd need a 27-35 offset on a 9.5" rim and for the rear you would be fine with a 41mm

Yup it's a squared setup. I am on bags using mk4 r32 air lift struts so idk if that would change anything?

you need a 25-30mm spacer in the front and a 20mm in the rear.


just a guesstimate.

Wow that sizing is crazy haha. What wheels are you using with those offsets?

Definitely is going to take some effort to fit those...

Definitely need an effective offset of 25-30 up front to clear what ever suspension you have. Here is the clearance of 9.5" wide wheel with an et25 offset to ST Racing coilovers.

Thanks for the picture, im hoping that these vw struts offer some more clearance than regular ones but ill be doing a test fit tonight with the 41mm offset. Im almost sure the rear will work but Im not so optimistic about the fronts lol
