Wheel and tire fitment?

I'm trying to purchase wheels that are currently on a 2006 330i sports package sedan and place them on 2007 328i sedan. The wheels are 18" with a 40mm offset and 6.10" backspacing. If they will fit, what size tires do you recommend?

If ALL four have a 40mm spacing then they will fit. Most of the time E90s have a staggered rear that is too aggressive for an E46. Assuming the width is either a 7.5 or 8.0" I would go with a 235/40/18.

What's the width of the wheel? Do you know the exact style or can you post a picture?

Those could either be replica wheels or wrong specs.

OEM style 162's have a +34 front and a +37 rear offset.


To answer your question, they should fit fine on the '07.
