..Anyone ever put e36 M3/M3GT wheels on an e46?..

How would these fit our e46's? And does anyone know the exact specs of the wheels? If they fit, I'm definitely gonna photoshop that shit...

They will fit. IIRC, OEM E36 M3 wheels were 17x7.5 and 17x8.5. I have my OEM E46 7 spoke sport package rims on our 97 e36. bolt pattern/hub size is the same.

DSI


DSII

Wow, thanks for that dude. I was thinking the DSII's but didn't know there was any difference or other design out there.

They will all fit. The double spoke II I put on my car and it looks nasty.
