View Full Version : E36 M3 wheels on an E30

12-30-2002, 04:02 PM
i know there are a couple types of E36 M3 wheels but I want to know if any of these fit an E30 325i or 325ix. is there a difference in the 325i and 325ix for wheel fittings? or is it all the same. i tried searching and i didnt find much info. thanks

the E30 rims are 4 bolt and the E36 rims are 5 bolt.... so unless you are planning on converting your E30 from 4 to 5 bolt..... then no u can not.

are there any new bmw rims that fit E30's. sorry for all these newbie questions. im just asking because i figured i could get a nice used set for cheap. opposed to new stuff from tire rack. please tell me if im wrong. thanks

OEM BMW wheels can be same $ or if not more expensive than aftermarket.

you can probably go with Japanese rims.....and get spacers or something if the offset is wrong since a lot of riced jap cars are 4 bolt too. may I suggest Enkei RS6 or RF1 :D heh they're nice....
