My Ride: is waiting
I'm still looking at some different wheels for my 00' 323iT. I have found some DSII (style 39) e36 M3 wheels but I'm not sure yet if it's a staggered set. Does anyone know if these will bolt right up to my e46? I don't want to fool with fender mods or spacers, but wouldn't mind staggered wheels if they will fit.
Anyone? Pic perhaps?

thanks

Here's site with pics and specs on many OEM wheels:

http://felgenkatalog.auto-treff.com/

As you can see, the Style 39 does come in a staggered set. I had a set of Style 68s, which were designed for the E46, and they are more modern looking. Plus, any used set of E36 wheels is very old. Having purchased used wheels, I am more inclined to buy new aftermarket wheels or wheels on sale at dealers than used 10 year old wheels. You just cannot inspect them and see everything.

Staggered wheels add weight to the rear and probably make the 325i slower, but they do look good. They also add understeer to the car and make it handle a little less nimbly. I switched to a set of 17x8" BBS RKs for summer tires and a set of Style 73 17x7" for winter tires. I am very pleased with these choices, but some will accept nothing less than 18" or 19" wheels, most of which are quite heavy compared to stock E46 wheels.
