weird

That is weird i was considering these wheels with exactly the same off sets what tyre size have you used 225/35/19 fronts and 255/30/19 rear as i was assured 100% there would be no issues with rubbing etc .

Try mailing ant397 if he still gets on here as he knows what is ok as he runs them on his e90 d3 and i must say looks awsome proberbly my favourite wheels ,

weird i think jasongtr has just fitted them without issues ????

The E92 has around 10mm less room to play with than the E90/91.

ET33 on the rear of an E92 with a 255/35/19 tyre is what you need really, you have bought the OEM fitment, ie for M3's.
To be fair the guy does list the cars that it fits and the E92 is not on there.

"19" Alloy Wheels Model 269 fits BMW E46 M3 CSL E90 E91"


What size tyre have you got on there??

You may need to have a rethink or roll your arches, where are you based.

He has 'misold' them mate, and that is the important word to be using here.

Even with 255/35/18 tyres you will still have to roll the arches of your car, you need a 33mm offset really, there are loads of threads saying that ET30 needs lots of work, ie big negative camber, rolled arches etc. etc.

I would start again, trying to get them to fit is a big effort.
