Help on Rims will it work ?

Hi sorry i tried searching but cant seem to find a positive answer on a size of rim and offset that I may consider purchasing as the price is too good to pass up....sorry I'm a noob to this stuff and its a lot of info to absorb and I still don't understand how these offsets work ! so maybe someone can chime with an answer straight yes or no ..I would appreciate the help !


my car is a 2015 320i Xdrive non sport lowered on Eibach Sportlines purchased this way !

Rims are 18 x 9 with a 40 ET...


Any Help is greatly appreciated

The only sure size I know that will work in the front is 189 with a et35...

Unless you believe this guy running 189 et42 on the link that follow

Et40 is 2mm less that et42.... means that's your 2mm away from rubbing your suspension. And the tire you choose will be factor here.

I found a 320i xdrive on Google says he's running frt/rr 18x9 42 et with 245/40/18 Toyo's their very squared not bulging but hes not mentioning if hes on springs or coilovers or what style coilovers as bottom mounts vary , camber plates or any fender mods and No spacers.....searching is a pain in the ass and taking someone's word for it could be a nightmare.....if you get my meaning...appreciate the response thank you

I completely understand man....that's why I listed a size that will 100% fit.

I got no money or balls to play around just to find what limit (size) wheels that would fit. I just go for what's work
