Will this wheels fit my 323i?

Hi All,


i'm currently the higest bidder on this item

http://www.ebay.com/itm/320976918472...S:3160&vxp=mtr

The bolt pattern and offset are perfect for my e46 323i.

However, the center hub is 76, when my car is 72.something, will this affect it any way?


Let me know.

thanks!

yes... you will get insane vibration at 40+mph. Ive experienced it already.

Im not exactly sure how it works. I bought e39 wheels to put on my e36. I had to buy hub centric rings.

Plus, on a personal note, they are hideous looking wheels.

Personally I wouldn't mess with it if I need to convert the center bore using adapters. Play it safe and best. Get wheels made for your car.

The TSW Croft wheel is completely discontinued from TSW's line up so you wont be able to get a replacement wheel if you purchased that set. If you received those and they're completely damaged past repair, then you'll be screwed. If you want a real set of TSW's the most popular versions would be the Nurburgrings which you can find here:


TSW Nurburgring Wheels

The TSW Nurburgring Wheels have a layer of clear coat applied to them after being painted and polished; as a result, the wheels are easier to clean, the shine on the wheels are preserved, and it's protected from brake dust. You may use any automotive soap to effectively clean these wheels, as well as adding a thin layer or wax to enhance the shine. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask via PM/Email or call me direct at 714.582.3330 extension 8002, and ask for Jurrian!
