My Ride: 05 Legacy GT Wagon
04 Orient ZHP Sedan - Style 287 Wheels (LCI e90 Wheels)

After posting my OEM ZHP wheels for sale, I have had a few people PM me asking me how the new wheels look.

I do not plan on keeping these long (plan on going v701 in gunmetal), but here is a quick pic to those who were interested. (Smoked turns, fender blinkers, and LED tails coming this week. Also a new lower grille insert as it is faded).



Size specs:

Fronts: 225/40/18
18x8 et34

Rears: 255/35/18
18x8.5 et39

My Ride: 2000 BMW E46 Sedan
Hi Awesom3,

I like the look of the 287 Style wheels on your car! And I have a question for you: Will those wheels fit your car with out any spacers or any modification to the fenders? I'd like to get your input, if you would please. I have a 2000 E46 Sedan, and I am interested in buying a set of wheels of the 287 style, and I want to make sure they will fit my car.

Hope to hear from you.

Thanks,

6Wingman

I can jump in for him and answer your question for you. These will fit without modification with the tire sizes listed. Not only that but the widths and offsets are debatably perfect for the average driver- as they are near as aggressive as you can get on a sedan without any fear of rubbing- even when the car is fully loaded.

I know this post is old, but what do you guys recommend for the E46 Touring? I have a set of these wheels coming next week, but don't know about tire size. Thanks!

The tires sizes above work! I got them installed yesterday and so far there is no rubbing.
