Hey Everybody,
Soooo.. once I fix my CCV system :eek: I'm planning on buying some 18 inch TE37's for my e46 328i. It has the factory 17 inch wheels on it now which I have no idea the specs on, but basically I've narrowed my choices down to two different wheels and I'm not sure which offset I should go with. :dunno: They are both 18 inch wheels with a width of 8.5. However, one has an offset of 42 and the other has an offset of 35. Can anybody provide some insight on which would be better to go with, or explain the difference it would look like between the two once they're on my car.

Here's a pic of the car now :thumbup:

The reason they offer 2 different offsets is in case you want to go with a staggered fitment, in which case, the 42s would go in back, and the 35s up front.
For a square setup, I would go with 42s all around.

In the future, please downsize your photos down to a more manageable file size.

Addendum:

Whenever you see THIS in a wheel ad, it usually means: "You WILL probably have clearance problems" :rofl: vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv
