45 is still a little aggressive if you truly dont want to do any fender work or aftermarket camber adjustments.

If you want the widest tires possible (265-275 rears), the best fitment wheels are the Alufelgen SF-71/CS7 line which come in 19" diameters. 18x8 et45 and 18x9 ET48 fit perfectly.

Also the Apex ARC-8 come in proper offsets of 18x8.5 ET45 and 18x9.5 ET62

There are only a few wheels actually designed to fit the rear fenders of the E82 platform. The 9.5 ET45 just so happen to "fit" with a little fender work if you want wide rubber and no rubbing.
