    Ooops!

    How dont they fit? Rubbing on the strut/arch? Or the wrong PCD.

        you need spacers, test fit the clearance of the wheels using washers or something which you can "shim" and measure once you attain the correct thickness.

              hmm e46 wheels have the wrong offset
              they have between 40 and 50 or?
              e39 ones would fit
              look here
              8 and 9x18 from a e39 series

                Sounds like only one solution will do; ditch the coilovers. I've been contimplating a similar solution. I have Leda coil overs and they'll get in there but not without rubbing the inside of the tiny rear towers.

                What I may do is install the Leda dampers but use different springs for standard spring placement. This way I still get the adjustability from the Leda dampers without having to modify the towers. Know what I mean?

                    e36 wheels also have a wrong offest(you would need spacers)
                    better are wheels from the e34 or e39 series
                    some 18 inch from the 7er model fits as well
                    try to find some with a offset between 18-28
                    that must fit without spacers

                            ok i'll ask around.....
                            i still have a set 8/9x17 but there was a guy asking me for them and i have promissed him that I'll keep them in reserve for 2 weeks


                            maybe i could get the same set in 18 inch....
