Wheel Help!

thinkin about picking up some wheels from a local, just want to make sure that they're going to fit flush/okay on my e92.

wheels are 19x9.5 et20 all the way around and he his including 20m spacers.

should i run the wheels with spacers? and I'm planning on getting H&R springs in the near future, will the tires rub? i will be using the stock tires that came with the car.


thanks in advance!

If the wheels are 20 offset, that will probably work, although it is relatively aggressive (toward the outside). My track wheels are 10.0 inches, ET 25, and work fine. With a 9.5 width, you will end up about the same place, and I don't think you will have any fitment issues. But if you are considering using a 20mm spacer with an ET 20 wheel, offset thus 0, that will not work.

There's your issue. E46 and E92 offsets are different.

19x9.5 +20 and a 20mm spacer?! That would make the wheel fitment 19x9.5 +0. There is no way that would fit on an E46 unless he has some kind of crazy wide body conversion on his car.

Something is wrong with this info.

saw it with my own eyes. he was running them with a 245 tire in the rear. maybe thats why?

Anyways, picked up the wheels today, was wondering if i could swap my toms onto these aftermarket wheels?
