There is no such thing as a stupid question.

yes, they fit, the offset is somewhere around 35-38mm which makes them stick out extra 10mm (same effect as having 10mm spacers - known not to rub)

You need to find out the exact offsets to make sure they fit.

You don't know the offsets and yet you're buying them?

Why not ? They come from a compact (that means they can't be M offset). And e9x offsets are close enough to e46 to fit

Bought the alloys in the above link fitted them to the car however do not look as good as i thought they would so going to stick with them untill i get some better ones. Still beats the 16" standard ones which looked pants!

It says they came off of a 3 series "sport compact" wtf that means...pics looks like a 318 to me. I'm guessing they will fit. 225 X 40 X 18 is a measurement for tires, not wheels. Sounds like they are 18x8's or 18x8.5's.

The OEM M3 rear wheels will not fit. The front wheels will fit. If you want OEM M3 wheels, you need to run fronts all around.

I suggest a set of Velocitys if you want staggered M3 style wheels.

Velocity Motoring 18" CSL Wheels

Velocity Motoring 19" CSL Wheels
