Will E46 wheels fit on E90 323i sport? Advise needed

I'm wondering if 16 inch rims from E46 with 205/55R16 winters fits on my 08 323i sports package, currently with 225/50R16 tires.

I was told by the dealership's service guy it might not work cuz of the offset. But i've seen people have E46 M3 Wheels on E90s, so do u all think it will work or not?

I'm looking to buy these them soon, so any help will be appreciated.

for non-M3 wheels with 10-15mm spacers will work.

I don't know the offset tho, these come from a 99 323i, they are 16s......
So they will need spacer??

Thanks guys, I think I will pass this deal if it requires spacers.....

I looked around and couldn't find the offset for this wheels, only one website says the stock 16s on 99 323i uses "high" offset....

You don't need spacers.

I run the same wheels on my e92 as I did my e46 330 CI ZHP.

This is my winter setup though. I wouldn't run it as a permanent thing.

I would put your e46 stuff in the buyandsell and buy the proper stuff imo. Price it for a quick sell....you have no idea how desperate people are getting for winter tires. Check GlobalTV at 5:30 for the story.

Thanks........

I think these E46 wheels have ET 47, and my stock wheels have ET 34, does that mean I need to run 13mm spacer?


Thanks for the help.
