thanks again,

scott

the ones for E46 are all replicas. the reason why you can't use the 7 or 5 series oem ones is not because of the offset. that's the least of the problems.

e39 5 and e38 7 uses a 76.4mm hub diameter versus E46s 74mm... I might be off on the numbers but the fact is the hub diameter is too large for the E46.

I checked ebay on and off for about 2months and bid on the wheels with 4hrs to go. Got it for $624 total including shipping. They are 18x 8" all 4.

They are sitting in my living room waiting for tires to arrive
