CSL wheels on E92 335i

I have a set of CSL wheels from my old E46 M3.

I've seen a few pics of some forum users with CSLs fitted to their cars but I've also read about some wheels fitting some E92s and not the larger-engined variants so I'm a bit confused as to whether they will fit or not!

They are in the back of my Dads shed so before I go to the hassle of trying to get them out, will they fit my 335i? They have standard CSL size tyres - 235/35 R19 on front, 265/30 R19 on the back!

It'd be good to see some pics of any sapphire black E92s on CSLs to inspire me too!

Thanks for any help!

The trouble with genuine CSL wheels is the rear wheels,they have an offset of ET27 which is very aggressive on the E92,where the standard offset for a 9" x 19" wheel is ET39.

The genuine CSL wheel is 9.5" x 19",so is already slightly wider than the stock E92 wheel at 9",so with a 265/30/19 tyre it will rub,not perhaps all the time,but it will rub over speed humps,undulating road surfaces,and with a loaded boot,or with rear seat passengers.

The front CSL wheel is OK ET44,but will need a 10mm spacer to push the wheel/tyre out further, to fill the arch out nicely.

Smaller tyre size - 255/30/19 would be a better option,but even with that,it could still rub,or to save a lot of hassle get your rear arches rolled.

x2.

A 9.5 et27 wheel is basically the same as running an 18mm spacer on the rear of an oem 19x9 et39.

I have customers in the past who have fitted M3 fitment CSL's to their E92 3 series with no issues (albeit running a 255/30/19 tyre) and some who have reported slight rubbing issues.

A small arch roll will cure the problem and allow you to run the 265/30/19 tyre.

Regards,
Chris.
