Question what should i do?

ok this is the deal....i have a 97 328i and its lowered.....i am not sure how much its lowered or anything but i have a problem with some rims that i bought for it.

they are 19'' m3 wheels ...the back fits good ...all i need to is raise it just a little or roll the fenders i think...because it has about 1/2 inch of clearance from the fender and the stick out about 1/4 inch because they are super wide in the rear. i think like 9 or 10 in wide

the problem is with the front....the part that holds the spring up sits on the tire when i lower the car off of the jack...what could i do to make them fit???? or do you think i could just raise it up? or maybe 19'' just wont fit

if it helps the tires are 40 series

thanks .........

They don't fit. It's odd you say the fronts don't fit because from what i've heard they are supposed to.

What size tires do you have up front?

Also, i say give up on it unless you want to pull the rear fenders. The rears are the wrong offset.

You need a +36 to +44 mm offset at each corner. Factory e46 M3 wheels are low 20s in the rear.

Sell the wheels and purchase some proper wheels. Find wheels you like and post them up here and we can let you know if they will fit.
