Should I buy these wheels?
1 Attachment(s)
Hi Guys,

I am looking for a set of summer wheels for my 2002 330ci. I wonder if these M6 replicas I found on Cragslist will fit/if you think its a good deal. I like the way they look as long as the reps are good quality.


The size is what worries me. Tire is 265 wheel height is 18 and the width is 8.5. Will these fit without modifications like rolling fenders, or using spacers. They're square around to that i can rotate them.

I have read 100 posts about the topic without a definitive answer. I wish someone would make a "Will it fit my e46 guide."

Thanks for the help. Love my Bim

Without doing the research I'd say they would since the offset isn't too bad and they are 8.4 wide which isnt too wide at all :) Get them your getting a decent deal.

Can't give a definitive answer because the seller didn't provide enough info. You need to know the offsets (shouldn't be a problem with an 8.5 wheel but always good to know), hub bore size (E39 hubs are 74mm, yours are 72.5mm so will need to buy rings), and tire aspect ratio (5 series cars had larger series tires so a 265/40 would be a lot of tire for a 3 series). I had a 19" set from Mod Bar. shipped to Hawaii for a lot less so I would shop around more.
