Z4 wheels for e46

Does anyone know if wheels from a 2004-06 Z4 fit an e46? They are 17 x8 et 46.

Yes, they should fit, that's very close to factory width and offset.

My car is a 2002 330ci convertible with sport suspension and a staggered setup of tires and wheels. I want to go with a square setup 17 x 8 but am having trouble finding any e46 wheels that I like. Just wondering if the Z4 wheels would work. Currently have style 68.

Dafuq. He just told you they fit.

If that is not enough, go find the website that lists all the wheels bmw makes, idk bmwwheels.com or whatever, find the specs of the wheels from there, including wheel offsets. So an example is 17x8 et 30

Then compare that to your OEM m68 wheels.

Here are two websites I've used in the past
