My Ride: 03' 325 XI
FS or Trade 18"Hamann HM2

I just bought these off another E46 member, installed them drove about 30 miles on it and didn't like how it look and feel on my Xi. I just want to get what I've paid for them, so $600 for the set, or what I would like more is to trade for a set of Style 50, 68, 71, 72, or just a set of 17"s. PM me if you are interested. Locals perferred will ship but shipping can be expensive. Here's the link to the original post. I wanna add on thing, the tires should be replaced by my standards. The two previous owners drove it, and I guess they are ok with it. So I don't know.

I was told it was not bent by the last owner, visually looks ok, but I know the problem is the tire, I can feel some scalloping on two of the tires, so I'm experiencing road noise only at 20-30mph, I think it can also use a balancing. I'm not sure if it is because of my car is a Xi, the steering is stiff after the wheels, I don't like it how it feels, so back to the 17"s I go.

I've been getting some questions about the tires, so here's the pics for the tires and you can be the judge of it.

The wheels are heavier, so that's one reason, but u mentioned the tire being a factor, why not balance the wheels and get the tires changed, they can make a tremendous difference. Plus wouldn't this be easier?

It would be much easier, I have all the tool and equipment to do it, but my Xi doesn't look good with them. As far as I know and what I've seen, the Xi models, sit a lot higher than everybody else, even though mine is a sport package, it have a higher and stiffer spring. In my front, I have have a 4+" space between my tire and the fender. So with that setup I look kinda. Imagine low profile tires with a skyjacker kit, not cool to me.

Well that gap won't get smaller with 17s, it'll probably be evn more noticeable.
You need to lower it to remove that gap. Plain and simple.

I know it won't be better, and I can't lower it, because I do drive my Xi in the snow into mountain during the winter, and in the dirt and trails during my hunt season. So it's part city car part off road road vehicle, so slamming it to the floor is not an option.

clearly, you havent seen the other Xi's on here.
if its that bad, you dont need different wheels, you need a SAV.

No, I have seen the other Xis on the forum. You sound like you wanna pick a fight. I'm trying to work with I got. I have. a wrangler for my heavy off road use so a selling my Xi for a SAV is not necessary. I have an AWD and I'm putting it to use. If it makes you feel better, I'm trying to go back to stock, alright so calm down.

Your PM box is full

$600 for the set or trade for a descent set of 17"s, if your 17"s have good tires that I want, then straight trade, if the tires need to be replaced, the deal would be wheels plus a little cash.
