The Stock E46 Wheel Thread
I've searched for a while now trying to find a comprehensive thread that lists the most common stock rims in an organized manner. In case you were wondering like I was, what the name, size, & weight of your wheels were, this could be your go-to thread. This would also be helpful with questions about trading rims, etc. Here is the (rough) list to start:

^ I luv mine too but what a royal PITA to clean lol

RSteckhahn 03-04-2010 07:44 PM

off the top of my head, the 45's are one of the lighter rims at ~21 lbs apiece, style 68's were next at ~23 lbs apiece, style 44's were around 24 lbs. apiece. I am sure there are lighter rims, but these seem to be the most widely available stock rims on our bmws.

I was just searching around for this sort of info the other day. Thanks for putting it together. To add to the info...

Style 44
Found on: 328i (These wheels were on my 325ci when I bought it used. Not sure if they came on the car stock. I have the sport package on my car.)
Size: 17x8
Weight:23.1 lbs (10.49kg according to the link given above http://felgenkatalog.auto-treff.com/)

Love the 44's

I have style 42 16" on my all seasons. I peeled out my all seasons and put them on the style 42 rims for summer.

edit: I have dedicated winter tires on my stock style 45 16" oem rims on my e46 325. They are much heavier than the style 42 rims.

I never weighed them but would like to know the weight on style 42 and style 45 16" rims.

I love style 45 and 72.
