That's a replica wheel, like long said, the real deal will not fit.

At some point you are going to have to do some research on your own.

The Search feature here is invaluable. Search on "Replica".

Hope you enjoy spending more time cleaning the wheels than the car.

They are a bitch to clean, but it's worth it when you're finished.

Yes he is. Look at those narrow slots on the face. You'll need "special tools" to clean the brake dust out of those. Ok, so it's a q-tip job, but still a PIA.

I've seen these wheels at this site http://www.lakeshorewheelandtire.com...w-e46-18.shtml
and they have other reps too. I bought my MAS wheels from them a couple years ago.
