325Xi on Type 68 Wheels

I just bought a stock 2003 325Xi.

Id like to put a set of Type 68 wheels on it, at least for summer driving and keep the stock wheels for the winter.

I thought I found somewhere that you can do this, though there was some concern over the Type 68s being an inch wider in the back.

Can anyone verify this will work/fit and better yet, show me pics of your 2001-2005 325Xi?

Thanks all

They should work fine, I am running style 162 on my 05 330xi which is an 18 inch staggered set.

As long as you have the clearance you'll be good. The only thing you need to be careful with is outside diameter of the tires. There should be less than 2% difference front to back.
