Yeah, because 16" wheels won't clear the brakes on a 325i.

But it comes with 16 inch Stock rims which are on ther right now I just wanted to know if going down to 15 inch was an issue.

16s WILL fit an E46 328.

Only the 330/M3 need 17+, except for one weird 16" M-contour replica set (because I know Mystikal will bust my balls if I say only 17s fit!).

Yeah, 16" for 328s.

There are a few other 16" wheels that will clear 330 brakes, I think I've listed them out here before. But it's only 5-6, and out of those only ONE is still in production (Tirerack carries it).
