Those M3s seem to make great donor cars for wagons ...

It's funny... people who drive anything expensive often get labeled by folks who drive less expensive cars. I have found, without exception, that douchebags cover all demographics and incomes. You can be an douchebag in either a Echo or an Escalade.

Not modded yet unless you consider my yakima crossbars and bike trays mods. Pulled my old wheels from the depths of the garage, they used to be on my E85; yes they need refinishing, yes this is a test-fit to see if the 9.5" rear with 255s would work, yes they look small for 18s...yes I am skeptical, but they are here and not being used so might as well refurb them and use them.

My Ride: 2000 323iT Touring
Hi All!!

I have a 2000 323iT and am thinking of replacing the stock rims with rims from a 650i. The rims are staggered 19" 245 40 19 and 275 35 19. Just need to know if I can throw these on without any problems or do I need to do some modifications in order for them to fit.

Thanks!

good luck ^ first off (unless I am wrong) the wheel center is a larger bore so you will need centering rings - a minor problem. Second and a bigger problem is I doubt the offset will work with the e46. but where there is a will there is always a way... 275 rears on a stock 323 are overkill, but they will look mean.

everything is too much...too much offset, too much tire

I would try it out, but those sizes and the offsets for a 6er are going to rub and stick out
