HELP- Getting Rims..Need some advice

Sorry to post this again, but i need some help please. i have a 2000 323i and i'm getting some rims. i need to know if they will fit ok.

The rims are 17" bolt pattern is 5x120. The tires on there now from the seller are 215/40/17

Will the rims fit my car without issues? If so, what size tires should i get to put on there since i don't think the ones on it now will work.

I currently have potenza 225/45/R18 on my car and the fit perfectly.

Please help, need to make a decision on the rims today or else will be sold.

Thank you

You need to know the backspacing to know if they will fit without issue. With only a 215 width I doubt that the width of the wheel will be an issue.

whats the back spacing?
the description on the seller's blog is
"Rims were bought fo a bmw 318 but Will fit all 5 & 7 series cars bolt pattern 5 x 120 offset ET20 "
The rims were bought for a bmw 318

if its just the tire issus, no problem. I am fine changing the tires. I am only concerned about the rims fitting my car.

The ET20 means that the backspacing is 20mm. What's the width on the wheels? You might not be able to fit the width of tire that you want to run.
