    What offset/size can I get away with

    on a non-sport 325xi?

    I'm having issues getting anything that has an offset of 47.

    I have a set of 5 330xi wheels/tires for sale

    I have a set of OEM 330xi wheels, with almost-new Michelin xIce 205/50R17 tires (one wheel has an older Continental OEM all-season tire). I'll sell them for $125 each, which is what a new wheel would cost you. You pay shipping.

    CORRECT 325xi rims

    tire size --- - - - - - - rim size - - offset
    __________________________________________________ _
    205/60x15" - - (SNOW)- - - 6.5" x 15" - - 42
    " " - - - - - -(SNOW) - - 7" x 15" -- - - 47

    205/55x16" - -(NON SPOORT)- 7" x 16" - - 46 & 47

    205/50x17" - - -(SPORT) - - 7" x 17" - - - 47

    stop in at your BMW Dealer Parts Dept.
    for a copy of the Alloy Wheel catalog,
    about 10 different styles available
    in the correct sizes for your E46
    BEWARE OF AFTER MARKET DISCOUNT WHEELS

    found some info saying 40 is the factory offset

    I came up with the following with bolt pattern 5x120:

    momo Tuner (rw) @ 16x7.5 @ 40 offset - they are expensive
    Sport Edition F10 @ 16x7 @ 40 offset.
    Sport Edition CE @ 16x7.5 @ 42 offset.
    Touren TR3 @ 16x7 @42 offset


    Is 16x7 or 16x7.5 standard without sports package?
    I think 205/55 = 8 inches, right?
    Shouldn't all be fine if this car can take up to an 18 or 19" rim?
    I clearly don't know much about the tire sizes.. will any of these fit?

    Thanks again everyon,
    Liam

    Looking for 325xi rims

    I have two sets of 16" tires (205/55's) that I have been switching with the seasons off the same set of stock rims. I'd like to buy some rims that can fit the tires with around the right offset (which I think is 47?)

    Does anyone know if any manufacturer makes a set? My tire store doesn't have any from his suppliers but said he'd try to source them if I could find someone who makes a set.

    Thanks in advance,
    Liam
