M3 Wheels?

Could anyone tell me which wheels these are? Just regular M3 wheels? dont know. I want them for my 323 Ci.

I also saw other e46 M3 wheels which look pretty much the same but not as great, not even close! Which are these?

The wheels in the link in your post with the yellow M3 show OEM 19 inch M3 wheels. You will have to use four front wheels on your car because your car is a non-M offset and the offset of the rear wheels of the M3 offset is much too low to fit your car well in the rear.

Ok thanks.. and which wheels are the ones in the other pic?


If I have to use 4 front wheels, does it look good? or do you think i should look after another kind of wheels? Btw, how much is the price of the 19inch?
thanks again

cheers

The other is the standard 18 inch OEM M3 wheel. I'm not sure about the price from the dealer but you can get a set of 19's on the board here for like $1700-$2000 with tires. And that is for like almost brand new wheels and tires.

So the only difference is the size of them? In the 2 pictures it seems the spokes of the 18 inch go from the centre a bit to the back of the wheel. The 19s spokes stay at the front. Hope you guys know what i mean, hehe

Yes the 18's have a lip, the 19s do not.

I go for the 19s for sure... Does anyone have pictures of a non-M3 e46 with the 19 inch wheels? Is it always the same look/finish?
