E46 Rim Question

These are the OEM rims on the 330i M package

This is an 05 330 Coupe


This is an 03 330 Sedan



I know this sounds like a stupid question but would these fit on a 03 320i sedan?

Or the better question is do all e46 rims fit on all e46 cars?

all e46 rims should fit except OEM M3 rims as they have more of an aggressive offset.

Actually, 17" e46 non-M rims will fit all e46's, but smaller rim sizes like 16" and 15" will not fit 330 because of the brake caliper size.

And IIRC, 320 brakes are actually the same as 323 brakes. So 15" wheels fit will those cars too.

But anything 16" and up will fit a 320/323/325/328, and anything 17" and up will fit a 330. Some 16's will squeeze over 330 brakes, but not many.

Yup, Jay is right here.

e46 320i Front Rotor = 286X22mm (BMW Part#34111165455)
e46 323i Front Rotor = 286X22mm (BMW Part#34111165455)

Also the same rotor on some e36s.




PS: I know im late, jus came across thing while searching for something.
