E90 Style 162 Wheels on an E46?
 
I'm just curious if any one has ever put a set of these on their E46? I don't even know if it is possible, and whether or not they would rub. But heck, if the 18" e46 m3 rims will fit a non-M, i don't see why these wouldn't. I'm not planning on getting a set necessarily. More so I'm interested in how they would look. I eventually plan on getting some new shoes for my car, as my busted up old rashed stock wheels have seen better days. Pics anyone???

bump. Not one person out there has put a set of these on their e46?

I have definitely seen pics posted of someone with these wheels on their e46 sedan. Search around. If I remember correctly it looks like they stick out a tad.

edit: took me <30 seconds to find this. Try searching first man.

I did, and I don't know why this didn't come up. Thanks though.

I have no idea why people say they search for this very thing and then say nothing comes up. may I ask what you typed in when you searched?


ps, those wheels look so good if they are done right on an e46 :drool:

Personally, I think those wheels belong on the E90 only. But that touring does look very nice. Haven't seen many sedans with this setup though.

I just got one of these set, and put it on my 2001 Coupe, I'll post pic later. :)

imo only wheels that look good going from e9X to e46's are the bbs style 197's :drool:

Looks great on a touring, less so on the sedan and coupe...

there's a new thread out with some up for sale.... I always considered it but not sure..... maybe looks better if car is dropped as many wheels do... I always like the concave look on the e90's

I like the way your car looks are they any rubbing issues

I ran them on my car for awhile if you ask me the stock e90 offset looks great on the e46 it fills the fenders nicely without rubbing. I had the uuc tuned springs set with 22/40/18 all the way around

mendez4474 01-11-2010 11:50 AM

How was the ride quality any stiffer or heavier. I know lots of people don't like the looks but I really think it looks good with those wheels

Not bad they didn't seem like to heavy of a wheel I'm not sure of the weight but rode very nice.The only reason I had them is I picked them up for 150 bucks off cl and it was a upgrade from the 68's but as far as the looks I think they look better on the tourings or maybe if my car had coilovers and it was tucked it would have done it for me

I think they look amazing, if anyone knows of some forr sale let me know. Im lookin for some new wheels

would love to know if anyone is running four rears (18x8.5 et 37) itd be perfect on a sedan without needing spacers (IMO)

I ordered a set of style 162 replicas. They are 19x9,5 et32 square. Can post pics when fitted if anybody is intrested to see how they look :thumbsup:

eric_waltrip 03-04-2012 07:15 AM

I hv the 18s I would love to see the 19s

eric_waltrip 03-06-2012 07:41 PM

Had for about 2 years they fit fine FYI bout to drop with spacers and attempt to stance it
