My Ride: 2003 Jet Black 330xi
Question I've searched to no Avail, Anyone want to help please?

I've got a 330xi

My buddy is selling a set of Borbet Type E's and I'm contemplating buying them from him. The Size is 17x8 ET13. I Have stock suspension and I want to know, do these fit without rubbing or anything? I'm new to messing around with wheels and such so I'm just trying to learn a bit and get some help on the topic. Any guidance would be appreciated. Also I would be running my 225/45zr17 tires on them

With an ET of 13, I don't think they would, iirc it needs to be around 40, but I'm not sure. Still learning these cars myself. What did your buddy have them on? If there are tires on them, you could just try to mount them and see if they fit.

yup, too aggressive. ET30 is about as low as you want to go in the front on an 8" wide wheel on a sedan/touring
