    Looks like I'm rubbing on the rear.

    245/45/17 on 17x8.5" arc-8s.

    Any suggestions what to do?

    I know OEM size is 245/40/17. Tire rack says that makes it a whole inch taller.

    Looks like it's the corner of the inside wheel well protector thingy.

    Smaller tires. That profile seems to be too tall.

    Or remove the rear bumper screw, that should eliminate some rubbing.

    Your springs being softer doesn't help as well. I also believe the offsets on those wheels aren't exactly E46 fitment.

    On my BBS wheels, the fact that they were et35 offset and that my car is lowered means I had to trim some of that plastic you talk about. Most of it rubbed off by the time I got around to having it modified, but it did the trim.

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.

    The Random E46/ZHP Question Thread

    They're et40. Is that correct for e46?

    They do seem to stand a bit wider than the style 135s.

    My next tires will be the right size. Was hoping for an interim solution.

    Rear bumper screw isn't touching. Looks like it's the outer edge/corner of the plastic wheel well liner.

    Quick Question
    Will a 2007 3 series 6 spd fit on my car? I had heard the e90 shares the same trans.

    Et40 is good 35 is best.

    Take a Dremel tool to the bumper bolt and you will remove the rubbing. Mine only rubbed under hard cornering when the tires flexed to the outside corner.

    I have 17x8.5 +40 (same as Steve) on 245/40/17. The offset is actually very mild for a e46.

    Et40 is good 35 is best.

    Take a Dremel tool to the bumper bolt and you will remove the rubbing. Mine only rubbed under hard cornering when the tires flexed to the outside corner.

    Et recommendations depends on the width of the rim. 35 is actually more aggressive and he would rub even more if he is already rubbing with +40.


    The tire size is off and that extra inch is a lot. I would definitely trim the rear bumper bolt and the bumper lining. That will minimize some of the rubbing but I would get the right size next time or 255/40/17.

    I only went with this size cuz it came with the wheels when I bought them used.

    Ahem... Uh... What's a Dremel took?
