Not really a fan. But at least you're unique.

I think M6 rims are much more sporty and beauty than them...

I like them, used to have a set of m6s so I'm partial to 5 spoke. You probably couldn't lower it with these rims but it would look so nice lowered with mtechII.

I got a major steal on these so I figured I'd give it a shot. I like the way they turned out.

Too modern and angular for the E46, especially a stock one at that.

Why spacers? you might need camber (-2), but not spacers. Rolling your fenders would work. They look good with a nice drop and BBK.

Alright so for my situ, a simple fender roll will take care of the rubbing? No camber required?

They look too big for your car imo. But like others said, lowering the car, and getting more aggressive bumpers might fix that

Well as stated, I got a great deal so I figured I'd try to make them work.
