FYI - my steel wheels from my e46 fit my e90 (325i)

I figured I'd never really know until I tried them out myself.

They fit with about a hair of clearance for the front brake rotors, but they fit!

BTW, I use them for my snow tires -- Blizzack.

Yeah, I've got that cop car look going on now.

I believe mine are 225/50-16. I do not know the offset of the steel wheels. I'll bet they are not hard to find for a bimmer.

Next time I will probably get 205-55/16. That's what I put on my wife's e46 and they cut through the snow much better.
