Anybody running e90 wheels?

I picked these up at the dealer today (take-offs), got a killer deal and also picked up a nice style 68 for a spare to replace that stupid 50mph thing (like I'm going to actually drive 50 mph on a hwy) duh.



they are 17 x 8 offset 34 (about 14mm each wider than e46 fit) but they fit fine with sport suspension and 225/45/17.
I also picked up 9 Michelin pilot sports

8 bills for the wheels brand new (said they had a weekend of use on them, they looked it)
300 for a 95-99% set (4) 225/45/17 Pilot Sport AS tires (not mounted, for next winter)
200 for a 90-95% set (4) same size Pilot HX MXM tires + 50 to mount, balance, install
and $80 for a perfect style 68 (17x7.5) and a 95-99% bridgestone touranza for the trunk
I paid a fair bit all told but I am in wheel/tire heaven now. And I think they look pretty smart on my e46. Cleaned the car and even wheel waxed the new hoops. Pics tomorrow.
It all started because I wanted a real spare really badly.

Not my style, but I am glad you like them.

Out of curiosity, will these fit my E46 (without the spacers I am currently running in the rear of course)

Style 162


Style 179 (my 2nd fave OEM BMW wheel next to Style 128 which WONT fit)

The 162 will fit on your e46 they are 8 x 18 front with a ET 34 and in the back 8,5 x 18 and ET 37. i run a set of 162's as winter rims and 10mm spacers front and back...





Here's a couple of pic's.
