Hi Indy,
would these wheels fit with H&R lowered springs fitted or would the car be too low and when you say the arches would need trimmed, inner or outer or both ??(does seem a bit drastic though)

Steve not sure about Indys wheels but my genuine ones catch the outer of the front arch by about 10mm on full lock
mines low too
others on here have had the same issue and let it wear away
i let mine mark then trimmed it with a Dremmel and a craft knife cant tell its been done unless you anal or really know your MC`s

get them bought

Thanks mate, I'll bear that in mind when it happens and I don't really know my MC's yet and definitely not anal (I think)

There has been quite a bit of interest already.

They only rubbed a very small amount on the front, but I don't like any kind of rubbing at all so instead of putting the standard springs back on, I just took the wheels off

I think they were catching on a small bit that hangs down in the front of the arch liner. As ragerover says, you can cut that out without any problems. Many people running 19's and higher suspension than mine get away with only minor trimmage. So 18's should be fine.

Any serious buyers are welcome to try them on for size
Or if anyone has some spare time, just to try them on for the look, that way can grab a few pics to show how they look when fitted

Sorry for the delay on these!

I now have these wheels ready for sale.

The front wheels have some light corrosion after being stored outside.
This is on the polished part of the wheels (lips)

The rear wheels were replaced with brand new ones, due to one of the old ones getting damaged by the tyre fitter. The tyres are the same, used part worns.

So same as before! Except they are now readily available for collection (or delivery, with a deposit)

I also have 4 brand new carbon bbs centre caps/badges which are now included in the sale.

These wheels should also be direct fitment onto an E46 M3 (and possibly a Z4M too?)

The corrosion is light. I will get pics and post them up.
I don't think it will be as noticeable from standing distance, especially once fitted on the car.
