Have tires, need help with 17" wheels for Winter.

Hey gang,

I just purchased a 325xi, and while it has terrific winter tires on it, the wheels themselves are badly bent, and effect ride stability.

I need new wheels, but I'm told to be careful and to ensure that everything fits right, and that fitment with a e46 touring can be kind of tough.

It's a 325xi 5 speed wagon, and the tires that I have are 225/45 R17 94R Nokian Hakkapeliittas.

I'll probably end up buying some OEM rims off of craigslist, or offline, seeing as they're winter rims, but I'm still looking for some guidance on what will fit /won't.

It's all stock suspension etc.

For an explanation of what Real OEM is, it an online ETK of BMW parts for specific vehicles. Each wheel type provides the width, diameter and offset, everything you'd need to buy stock, or aftermarket wheels.
