'01 BMW 325i sedan fitament

Hi all,

I am thinking about ordered a set of 18" M6 replicas off eBay, however am unsure about what offset I need for my 2001 BMW 325i sedan. It is currently stock height, but I do plan to get lowering springs. It seems as though all of the offsets of the M6 replicas on eBay vary from seller to seller - just hoping someone here can point me in the right direction.

Thank you in advance.

It depends on the width of the wheel. 18x???. If you provide us a link to the seller's page I am sure we can assist you.

Those will fit nicely.


That said, you may want to look at some of our site sponsors who sell those wheels as well before making a decision. I trust them more than I would an eBay seller, plus they help support this site.

Those should fit without any problems. What tire sizes were you planning on running for the front and rears?

That was my next question . Ideally I would like to go with the same size in the front and rear, I know the eBay auction is for staggered, however I'd like one size all around so I can rotate them. In this case, what would you all recommend? The car isn't currently lowered, however I do plan on getting lowering springs fairly soon so want a tire that will work with the springs. Thanks for the help

There are multiple manufactures of M6 wheels and there are many size choices available. If you're looking to go with a non-staggered 18" setup, you should aim anywhere from an 18x8.0 ET35-40 for the perfect fit on your E46. I'll go ahead and shoot you over a PM with more details!
