E46 CSL wheels + E90 =

A post for futire reference really.

They DO fit, but the fronts would need spacers on standard dampers (even at the standard ride height)

With coilovers or 20mm spacers, they'd be fine.

The rears fit with no problems at all and sit just right, there's a large gap still.

Some pictures -





So, that should clear it up, OEM E46 CSL rims with OEM tyre sizes will fit, but only with expensive suspension or big spacers on the front.

i though is not posible to replace the Wheels and tires(RFT) on the sport package E90 cause it will affect the handling of the car!
i want to replace them but i can't get any information about the conversion!
the only thing i know is that theres a new upcoming performance package for the E90 !

if you HAVE TO use spacers that means it doesn't fit

I am confused why you needed spacers? We have CSL's with perfect offsets for your E90.

I think he is talking about the OEM rims that came from the factory from BMW, unless yours are the exact same size, not too sure, looks great though.

15mm in front for the 19X8 ET47 (ZCP size) would clear just fine, here's mine:



It's dropped on KW V3s.

For the real CSL rim, which is 19X8.5J ET44, you can run a 10mm spacer and be done with it.

Whatever It looks good and runs well. I have this setup on for 6 months now and have not encountered a single problem.

These are the real OEM ZCP / CSL rims, not the replicas. They are not that much more expensive compared to the replicas and they are in fact made by BBS. I'd still buy them if I were given the chance to do it all over again.
