Fitment question

I have a e90 sedan with sport package. I am considering buying a set of wheels/tires locally. The wheels are 19x9.5 et 45 with 275-35-19 tires. The wheels are vmr v701s and were on a Pontiac g8. Will this setup fit my car without rubbing issues? I am worried about the fronts. Thanks!

NO, front will hit the struts inside and you would also need narrower tyre to front. In fact you won't be able to use the tyres at rear either. 275/35/19 is wrong height ratio. It's should be 275/30/19.

Also what is the bolt pattern and center bore of Pontiac?

G8 is also 5x120 and VMR offsets should be compatible. You will need new front tires, but you might get the rears to work with a 35 series. I sold a set of my aftermarket BMW wheels to a G8 owner.

Thanks for the responses. The bolt patern and hub are correct for the e90 but it looks like the tires are not going to work based on your feedback. I will move on and consider something else. Again thanks for the quick responses, it's very appreciated.
