18" OEM rims such a thing on an e46?

Other than an M3 do any of the e46 bodies come or are optioned w/ 18" wheels? Reason I ask is that I can only go w/ OEM wheels right now so I can stay within' my stock class where I race at.

Got pics? What years and models had them?




TIA,
MO

I thought the ZHP came with 18" wheels. Maybe just the ZHP coupe?

Yes, there are three versions I know of that were available for the 330's: One for prefacelifts, one for facelifts, and the ZHP M135 rims. Sorry I don't know the other two style #'s.

EDIT: I was only talking about coupes (excluding the ZHP). I think sedans might have had other style 18's.

Well OEM E$6 M3 rims are 19" I believe and not 18"
My 2004 325i has OEM 18" M rims fitted by BMW but the car was delivered with 16".
As far as I know none of the standard E46 came with anything bigger than 16".

m3 rims are 18's, 19's are an option later in the years...

330's came standard with 17's, their bigger brakes wouldn't allow 16's to fit (besides literally a couple pairs of rims0

they had the same styles....... 71 ans 72, but i have think it is very very rare to see the 18" upgrades on sedans........

idk if it is me, but the only time i see the upgrades is when it is on a coupe



but they were the same style

I'm pretty sure all ZHPs including Sedans came with 18" wheels. Mine did.

I see the 18" Style 72s from time to time. I prefer the 71 and ZHP. I'll likely do the CSL Replica w/ 18's which look awesome.

Run a search for the CSL Replica. Great looking setup IMO.

These are all OEM and will fit the non-M e46. I didn't include the e9x wheels because I know some fit, while others don't.

Style 71


Style 72


Style 78


Style 101


Style 107


Style 125


Style 135

Cool, thanks for posting that. Where can we go to view the current e9x wheels? I would be curious in that.

Type 162 (Front: 18x8 ET34 225/40 R18) (Rear: 18x8.5 ET37 255/35 R18)

The offsets seem like they would work.

Thanks! These pics help out a ton. I would rock the 18" CSL's but since they only came on M3 then I wouldnt be legal in my class. Now I just need to find some reps or someone selling a set.
