I wonder how these'd look on an e46. These are Style 216. They look a bit similar to BBS CH. I like 'em.

The other eBay looking ones are too wide and the rolling diameter is all wrong. Not to mention the 7-series use a different bore diameter don't they? I'd get them if I had that 8-series. It always bugged me how they mounted the wheel weights on the lips with adhesive on those That annoyed the hell out of me on my friend's car.
on the weights

pretty sure the only center bore that was different was the e39. and you could make them fit... its been done

The e39s and the 7s shared wheels though...in fact, the 540 with the Mtech came with these same wheels.

So ronery at work. (transparent attempt to replicate established group dynamic to gain admittance)

Could I like, play the part of Miles? You know, sort of slide right in and BECOME him, so that it's like here's still here but he's not, except its me? Wouldn't that be awesome guys? Hey, my wife said that if you all want to come over some time she'll like cook us food or something, and there's two slot car tracks and air hockey... and uh... my wife and three kids and like, chores and stuff.

If someone wants to use my son's Mud Slinger in the driveway I'm pretty sure he'd let you and I've got extra batteries galore, ok? We've got two bathrooms too!

There's also my extensive collection of hardcore Danish violent forced rough ATM DP BBW bukkake compilation tapes (VHS only, sorry).

Like, see, it's like he's not even gone, except it's ME!!!!

Do you guys like those moustache?
Wow. Just wow.

For those trying to figure out offset with different width rims, use this. Very helpful.

Go of a working set of wheels that you a familiar with and it will tell you the difference in fitment.
