Thanks for the links guys. I was told that a E46 can fit up to 20's with the right tire and ultra low profile tires? I really would rather roll the fenders to get some more width, but can someone let me know? I'll start doing my research soon I promise :lol:
yes, 20's can be made to fit. however, i think they are too big. i wouldn't go for any bigger than 19's. another thing to remember is your offsets. don't get too agressive offsets otherwise you will need to make more modifications than just a simple fender roll.
You can do fender rolling yourself, but i would recommend leaving that to a specialist.
I posted this on Bimmerfest, because they get really fast responses and I need one by tomorrow morning. Here is my quote from BF:
I have started a thread before this one about rims and such. Now, I am going to be honest, I need to do my research. Time is the main factor, and I'd love to do some research myself. My stepdad's brother is here in town and he is willing to do any work that I need to get done while I'm at work for one or two days.
I want deep dish rims in maybe a 17 or 18 base. I thought I had to roll the fenders to fit 18s, but apparently not. Since this was brought to my attention, I was wondering if the rear M3 wheel will fit a rolled fender on a E46 325? In my judgement, I do not think it's possible without other modification. So if someone could just clarify this, I'd appreciate it. Also, if that is true, what is the widest I can go (recommend me something).
the m3 wheel will not fit in your rear, the m3's offset is too agressive. maybe if you got 4 front m3 wheels then you should be fine. the wheels shown above from bmwerken are the csl wheels. those are very nice.
