My Ride: '01 325xi
question about offsets

i have a set of 19x8.5 wheels that were on my '01 325xi that i need to sell
i had someone ask if they would fit a 2000 323i and i am not sure if the offset will work. my other dilemma is that i do not have the wheels at my house and i can't look at them to vrify. so if at all possible i would love some help so i don't screw anyone and give them any wrong answers

thanks

the bolt pattern is the same, the offset to my knowledge is also the same, as long as there form a 3 series they will fit another 3 series aslong as its not a
e46 m3.

Just a clarification. An offset 35 wouldnt make any difference if I get an offset 38?

Some guys over here are telling me to get wheels with an offset of 38. I see some aftermarket wheels for the 318i sedan with a 35 offset. I really like them 18" Miro type 347. I currently have 17" CSL replicas and plan to upgrade and order from the States online.

35 and 38 offset is fine. You can go with either one, just pick the wheel you like better. I have 38 offset.

Like Gary said...anything from 33-50 works.


sconroy325: Your wheels will fit a 2000 323i just fine.
