    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

    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

    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.

    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
    WITH THE WRONG OFFSET !!!!

    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.
