if it was et 25 i would say it might work with a stretched tire and maybe like 2 degree camber out back, but the setup you posted most likely wont work. test fit and see what happens

does anyone know the widest 19" rim that that has been done for the rear of an e92 m3? maybe i should do 11.5? i still would want to be able to lower the car.

Are you looking to run a full sized tire, or a stretched tire with more of a "euro" look?

I am confident that you will not be able to fit a 19x12" wheel, with an appropriate width tire (most tire manufacturers will reccomend a 315 tire for a 12" wide wheel).

I second that 12" with the recommended 315 is doubtful no matter the offset. ...Although I've seen 20x11 with 315's on a lowered E92 M3 work just fine.....which I doubted was possible.

excuse my ignorance
but why would you want to fit such a big wheel?
is there a performance advantage?
or is this just looks?
