    ZHP sedan, H&R sports, can I fit 19x8.5 et38, need quick help?

    Hey Guys,

    First time, long time;

    I have been looking for wheels for a while now, frustrated. I want something period correct so I am limited to searching and searching. I have only wanted 18's.

    Well today, I came up on an amazing deal, however they are 19x8.5 et38 square. I have been researching for 2 days, and for the life of me, can not find a e46 sedan matching this fitment on record. I have found close, but not exactly. I admit, I am a bit slow when it comes to analyzing wheel fitment, and prefer a wrench in my hand.

    Yes, I have read the fitment guide.
    Yes, I have used the wheel calculator.
    From what I can tell, they should work. I just need piece of mind to rest assured before the purchase.

    Is this proper logic?
    Researching from rear stock (et51) to et38, its inner clearance is additional 13mm, outer push toward lip is additional 13mm.
    Front stock et47, additional 9mm inner clearance, outer push toward fender lip is additional 9mm.

    I need to make a decision by tmrw or the wheels will fall to another buyer in line behind me.

    Thanks in advance!

    They'll fit just fine with a thin tire, but they're going to ride rough and look ridiculous at that size and open 5 spoke design. Those are beautiful wheels that would look great in a 17 or 18 size.

    I was just looking at these this morning. Don’t know where you are or what your budget is, but I agree. They’ll be rough. IMO 18s look more at home on a sedan.
