Super noob question,
 
Like above mentioned, Why don't staggered wheels fit a stock 325i? I found a really nice set, front is 18" x 8.5 and rears are 18" by 9.5. I love the wheels, the price is great, but I just know that staggered doesn't fit stock, what would be required? is it possible to install as it is and face little consequences? Please guys, be detailed.

Who told you they won't fit staggered? As long as the offset on the rims are good, and if the tires low profile enough, you can fit those all day long.

For 18's, a sport package with 18" updrade rims on the 330 are 225/40R18 front and 255/35R18 rear, as long as your tires are around that size, you'll fit them no problem.

Heh, thanks for the info, currently I have a set of mitchmatchers, 3 of my wheels are non oem sh!t style 44's and one is OEM, my spare is a style 45. [Bought the car that way, didn't notice till 2 months after sale. meh.] This is actually the ones I'm lookign at right now, it's either these or these. Honestly, I like the second ones better. OEM FTMFW.

staggered wheels definitely fit. as long as the offsets are ok.

Both wheels are a great choice, personally i would go for the lm's but i'd have to go 19's. i've got a set of reps with 265 on rear and 235 on front. and couldn't be happier with them.
ultimately its your personal preference

SurreyF1 Dear sir, Your vehicle is one of the sexxiest mechanical contraptions I have ever stood witness to.

What are the offsets and sizes that fit? I'm really new to buying wheels. VERY new. My current tire sizes are 225/45/R17.

Thanks for the edit Jake. :D

Rather than Imola, try looking for something rarerish, like Kiwi, or Laguna. I say go for Kiwi.
