    I am trying some 19" M3 wheels on my '02 325ci but the back tires rub on the fender if I hit a bump doing >45 mph...are the rear wheels wider than the front? If not, will changing the tire size help? Or should I even try these wheels on my ci?

    Well, it was a good enough idea but you will find that neither the front or rear E46 M3 wheels will fit your car properly. The front fenders are different and the rear qtr's are wider on an M3 compared to the regular Ci body. 19's will fit on your car, just not the OEM M3 wheels, a completely different animal in every way even though they look very similar.

    Check TireRack for proper 325Ci firment specifications.

    And Enjoy!

    Well, it was a good idea for one day...I was afraid they might not work. I guess I now have some 19" M3 wheels for sale.
