    8.5 inch rims with 15 offset?

    Found a set of 8.5" wide 18" Beyern mesh rims for sale but the offset is listed at 15. Will this fit my 2002 330xi?

    Nope, unless you have rolled fenders maybe. The stock offset for that size is around 30, so don't try to install some 5-Series rims on a 3-Series.

    Stock offset is 47. The max I would run on a 18" 8.5 wide rim is 35 without being lowered.
