Mein Auto: 2005 325i
325i Wheels

Anyone know if the 325i will be able to use Style 162 rims? The only ones listed on the bmw configurator is 17" wheels. The 162 18" ones look a lot better.

If "be able to use" means will they fit: Yes.

In Germany, where you can order any wheels on any model, style 162 wheels and staggered 18" tires are optional on the 325i.

I've just gone through the ordering process. In the US, you can't order a 325 with those wheels (which, I agree, do look the best).

You'd have to get the 325 and then purchase the wheels and tires separately and swap them. I called BMW USA on this very matter. They didn't know when the (style 162) wheels'd be available, but I was told that for all BMW models all of the wheels can be purchased separately.

I'm seriously thinking of upgrading to a 330i just for the 162 wheels.

Sigh, that's what I did.
The extra 40 hoursepower, the power seats and the wheels are together what make it worth
the extra $5K or $6K.
