I am looking at rims from a 2002 bmw z3 and want to make sure they will fit my 09 328xi sedan... can anyone shed light on this for me?

Thanks!

Please, tell the wheel specs?
Size?
Offset?
Width?
Center bore?

No one can know, what wheels that Z3 has.It could have aftermarket wheels or factory wheels, and even if we would know the name of the wheel, there can be many different size/offset possibilities.

OK.. these rims are:

5x120 with a 72.5mm bore and a 35mm offset

I believe the specs for the 09 328i sedan are 5x120 with a 72.5mm bore and a 31mm offset - correct me if I'm wrong.. so, should the Z3 rims fit?

Still missing the width of the wheels? Which is quite important.

At least 5x120 and 72.56 are correct and in generally the 35 offset is close to stock setup and it should fit.
