E90 Style 162 Wheels on an E46?

I'm just curious if any one has ever put a set of these on their E46? I don't even know if it is possible, and whether or not they would rub. But heck, if the 18" e46 m3 rims will fit a non-M, i don't see why these wouldn't. I'm not planning on getting a set necessarily. More so I'm interested in how they would look. I eventually plan on getting some new shoes for my car, as my busted up old rashed stock wheels have seen better days. Pics anyone???

I have definitely seen pics posted of someone with these wheels on their e46 sedan. Search around. If I remember correctly it looks like they stick out a tad.

edit: took me <30 seconds to find this. Try searching first man.

I did, and I don't know why this didn't come up. Thanks though.

I have no idea why people say they search for this very thing and then say nothing comes up. may I ask what you typed in when you searched?


ps, those wheels look so good if they are done right on an e46

Personally, I think those wheels belong on the E90 only. But that touring does look very nice. Haven't seen many sedans with this setup though.

I ran them on my car for awhile if you ask me the stock e90 offset looks great on the e46 it fills the fenders nicely without rubbing. I had the uuc tuned springs set with 22/40/18 all the way around

How was the ride quality any stiffer or heavier. I know lots of people don't like the looks but I really think it looks good with those wheels

Not bad they didn't seem like to heavy of a wheel I'm not sure of the weight but rode very nice.The only reason I had them is I picked them up for 150 bucks off cl and it was a upgrade from the 68's but as far as the looks I think they look better on the tourings or maybe if my car had coilovers and it was tucked it would have done it for me
