Fitment Width question arc-8

Im looking to install arc-8s on my 02 325i. I would most like to put 18x9 in front and 18x10 in the back would this even fit? Im looking to make the size in the front compared to the back pretty noticeable so would 8.5 front and 10 back look better. Also I was going to have a flat faced front and a concave rear to exaggerate size even more. Anyway main question is if 10 would even fit

9 definitely fits front and back. IIRC, there is enough room for another inch in wheel width as long as you keep tire size down.

What is the offset of the 18x10's? ET25? How low is your car? Are your fenders rolled? What size tire?

Its all about the offsets really. You can definitely fit 9s and 10s it just depends on whether you have the correct offset or not

My car is stock everything right now but when I get the rims Ill be lowering and maybe rolling if need be. Havent worked out tire size yet, but not looking to stretch at all. If you got any dimensions on the size you think I should get let me know. like I said im conforming the height and rolling to the fitment so choices are open as long as they fit stock.

If you want to run a meaty tire, 10" wide wheel will have to be in the et35 range.

This sedan has 19x10 et37 with a 265/30-19
