    This man is right!

    So what are the widths of your alloys? It will tell you on the back of the alloy - stamped/engraved

    e.g. 8.5J for a 8 and a half inch width rim which can fit a max tyre of 255/00/00

    You need to ascertain the offsets too. This will be stamped on the back of the wheel, either preceded by the letters ET or IS

    Hi, I have not been able to get the wheel off yet, but it has 19 h2 on the rim, I brought them new for a e36 m3 cab if that helps

    Thanks ;-)

    Hi,

    I have finally had time to get the wheels off, these are the markings inside the wheels,

    -imageuploadedbytapatalk1374594902-920236-jpg

    So could I put 255/35/19 on the rear of a e46 touring?

    Thank you
