E36 Rim Offsets and Widths
Just curious as to what rim widths will fit my 1993 325i 4 door sedan. I'm currently running with 17" AC Schnitzer 8" rims with 215/45/17z Falken FK542"s.
I want to go a size bigger to 18" Beyern manufactured rims (made for BMW) but they all have 8.5" and 9.5" widths for the rims.
How does that work? Can I run wider rims than 8" on the front and rear?
My bolt pattern is 5x120mm with a high positive offset of 40mm I believe.
Hypothetically if I were to go 18" 8.5 on the front and 18" 9.5 on the rear is that possible? And what tire sizes would work for those widths?
Thanks in advance. Any help would be much appreciated.
