Default Another Will it Fit Thread

I am sure the answer is somewhere on here but from what I have seen, some say these wheels and tires will fit no issue. Others say they will rub. I have a stock 2002 M3 coupe. I am wondering if the following wheels specs will work without rubbing or the need to roll fenders. Also, i will most likely looking into lowering at some point to sit flush. So if you have insight into if that will rub, I appreciate it as well.

- Front 19x9.5" ET33
- Rear 19x10" ET25
- Bolt pattern 5x120
- Center bore 72.6 mm

- Front 255/35/19
- Rear 285/30/19

This website is a great tool to determine fit.
Head out there and measure your current setup and go from there.

I used that site but was unsure on if it would work without rubbing or anything. (Im not smart when it comes to wheels and offsets etc). I will post screen shots of the measurements. Thanks.

It literally tells you above those diagrams, in simplified terms, what the difference in width will be from your current to new setups.

Grab a ruler, and go out and measure from the faces of your current wheels.

Short answer - looks like these will fit.
You may have to play with alignment/camber specs and tire sizes to get everything "right"
