Help: m3 offset on e92, not sure whether they will fit

Hi guys, I am about to purchase an used OZ Superleggera III, but then I am not sure whether they will fit on my car.

offset:
19x8.5 et 46 Front
19x10 et 27 Rear

These are M3 offsets and I have a e92 lowered with kwv2.
Please tell me whether they will fit or they are gna rub like crazy.

Thanks in advance

They can fit if you work with it. You will have to roll your fenders and maybe raise the car up a little if you're slammed. LONGTRAN had M3 fitment BBS LM's on his E92 and he got it to work.

You will need a 20mm spacer at the front and roll your fenders at the rear.

The rear will rub like crazy. With that aggressive of a fitment, rolling the fenders may not cure your rubbing issues.

I remmber someone fitting 9.5 ET25 at the rear, rolled fenders.

Well...like wj4 said...it's not hopeless. It's very possible. Just requires some good ol' fashioned elbow grease. Definitely not a bolt on fitment, but it can be made to work with relative ease. So, start with the fender rolling and go from there

It's going to take a lot of work to get those wheels to fit. I would just get a set of wheels with correct offset to save me from the headaches.
