Please help. Will these fit?

http://atlanta.craigslist.org/atl/pts/3426616428.html

Hankook Ventus tires
255 35
275 30

He is not sure of the offsets, thinks rear or both are +20. He had them on a E46 M3 and a E36 with no rolling or cutting.

I have a 06 E90 with sport suspension. I do not want to lower more, roll, or cut.

Thanks in advance!

I'm not sure how to find out. Guy said that they don't say on the wheel anywhere.

Not sure how he had the same wheel on an E36 and an E46 M3. The correct offset for an E46 definitely won't fit on an E36. I had an E36 and E46 factory wheels had a bad offset for the E36. The offset for an E46 is also wrong for an E90.
That being said, without knowing the offset, it's good not to buy.

A good offset for a 19" wheel on an E90 that is not aggressive and doesn't require a fender roll is 19x8.5 front, 19x9.5 rear both with +35.
You should be able to fit a 235/35 up front and a 265/30 in the rear.
Depending on the tire you can get some 275/30 tires to fit.
All this with no rolling of the fenders and not rubbing.
I have a sedan, but a coupe should be similar, if that is what you have.

I'm running Foregestar F14s in the fitment I described with 235/35 up front and a 275/30 in the rear. I'm running Falkan 722 all weather high performance. I have sport suspension.
No issues at all, even with five in the car.

19x8.5 et40 and 19x9.5 et45? I'm sorry I have tried to understand offsets and just can't wrap my head around it. Looking at some LM reps, they are my favorite.

Those will fit but wont look as well because of high offset. I have 19x10 rears et 24 w/ a 265 and im thinking about putting a 15mm spacer on them. Im rolled and dropped.

Brutally high offsets with small wheels. There going to look really sunk in.

Ok I'll ask this. I have read threads and there is currently another but here's the true ordeal.

I want some 19" LM Reps
Hankook Ventus V12 tires
I do not want to lower, roll, or cut fenders.
I do not have a lot of money and trying to stay around $1500 or lower.

What are my best choices?

That's easy then. Get some standard fitment (the vendor will know) 8.5/9.5 reps with 235,265 tires. Reps vary in design so pick based off that. 1500 is also ambitious if you want quality reps. Set your budget to 2000 and you won't be disappointed in the long run.

E46M3 and E36 has completely different rear offsets. E36 is high, around +40-50. E46M3 uses low, around +15-25.

255's won't fit in the front without fender work.

I knew anything M3 would be low so that's about where I decided I wasn't going to purchase.

I am also looking into some 20x8.5 et37 and 20x10 et33 LM reps.

I know people don't like 20s but I think the LMs look great in 20s plus they are a couple hundred cheaper. I want the Hankook V12 tires. Would 235 35 20 and 255 30 20 work? On tirerack it doesn't show they have a 265 30
