    Hey guys need some help here I've got an e46 coupe per facelift

    At the moment it rests on 18" m6 reps which are about an inch wide....lol


    Now, I'm fitting coilovers and rolling my rear arches this weekend as I'm hoping to be getting som wider wheels

    81/2 front and 91/2 on the rear

    Still being 18's

    Am I to expect scrap age? Even after the arch rolling? Should I be fitting spacers if so what size to avoid any unwanted contact! Lol


    Again I apologize for yet another coilovers question, I just wanted the question answered specific to my situation and once it has i don't mind it being deleted

    Thanks in advance guys!
