If you've clicked on this thread you probably already know what these are: the best factory E36 (and arguably any other platform) wheels BMW ever made in one of their rarest forms. These wheels are no longer available from BMW, and were only an option in Canada on the 45 1994 Canadian Edition cars (most of which were not ordered with them) or in the U.S. on cars from the 1995 model year only.
This is the second set of these wheels I've listed for sale here; this particular set are the original factory upgraded wheels
from Canadian Edition M3 # 19 (of 45) - with proper casting marks and full documentation to prove it. These are a complete staggered (7.5" front, 8.5" rear) set of 4 17" forged lightweight wheels, all of which are straight and true without any curb rash whatsoever on the front and very minimal curb rash on the rears on their original 1994 finish
The wheels look spectacular and have no cracks or any other problems. The front wheels have Bridgestone S03 225/45/17 tires on them with hardly any tread life left and the rear wheels have Michelin Pilot MXX3 245/45/17 tires on them that are nearly new.
The responsible thing for me to do when I already have a gorgeous set of these same wheels on my M3 is to liquidate some of the discretionary money I have tied up in my daily driver to put toward paying off the loan for my M3.
Pictures of the wheels are forthcoming (and will be posted quickly if the level interest is high); those of you who have seen my 325iS in person can no doubt attest to their incredible condition.
The price is $1600 firm
(Canadian dollars) picked up near Woodbridge, but I'll ship these anywhere in North America at your expense for actual shipping costs plus a nominal $25 for packing materials and my time. If you're looking for a set of these rare wheels in Canada this is the only set available here right now; if you're looking for a genuine set of these wheels from a Canadian Edition this is the only set you're likely to ever
see for sale.
I think my price is fair, and I will not be accepting lower offers
. I love the way these wheels look on my 325iS - they're the nicest looking part of the whole car
- and I'm in no hurry to sell them.
If the right buyer wants these I'll let them go for roughly what I paid for them.
Thanks for looking!
