Default 19" VMR VB3 fitment question

Can I buy:

19*9,5" ET33 front

19*10" ET25 rear

to my M3 E46?

And what tires should I have?

275/30 rear, 245/35 front should be nice...

Any rubbing with those tires?

Thanks!

The rears should work just fine. I had the same specs on the rear BBS RGRs that I had.

The front might be a little aggressive with the offset though. You might need a fender roll or dial in extra camber if you're lowered.

+1. Rear will be nice, but fronts will be a little aggressive. It'll look great though with the right camber.

The fronts may rub when you are lowered during full lock or while taking a turn aggressively unless you roll your fenders or dial in a little negative camber. Stock height you'll be fine

Sizes and ET's are fine. Rubbing will depend on brand of tire and how low you are. You should be good on stock camber front and rear tho!

You'll be perfect. I'm slammed on 19x9.5 +22 Fronts and only rub the front fender liner under 3/4 lock.

dont be a chicken!! get the 9.5's and run a 275 up front on them.. if anything you may rub just a bit on the fender liner.. again depending on ride height, camber, and tire brand!!

275 on the 9.5 +22 would never work properly.

I'm running 245/35/19 Front
275/30/19 Rear
