Isn't there someone on this board with E46 wheels on their E36 sedan? Looks terrible imo.

I think these lok better on an E36 than the E90...

I guess it's personal taste, but I'm happy with my style 161's on my 323.

I'm really happy with the E90 17" wheels I've just fitted to my E36. I think they look better than they do on the e90, but that's just my opinion.

Here are 2 different wheels I have and had on my E36 Vert - lowered on Rokkor coilovers btw

Style 33 from and E39 5 series, 16x7 ET20. They rubbed a little in the back but I slightly rolled the fenders before so they fit pretty nice. I like the flush look.




And these are the Style 189 from an E90 '07 335i Coupe with Sport Package 18x8 ET34 front and 18x8.5 ET37 rears - rolled the fenders in the rear because of the 255/35 tires and they looked pretty good I think.




today going to get some Style 159's and i'll post some pics after I fit them.

E90's have a low offset rears don't they? Much like the E46 M3's. So if you do decide to get them, be prepared to roll/flair your wheel arches.

Low offset and rim width play a big role in this.

With the ET34 18x8 and 255/35 tires on my E36 I didn't need to roll the fenders a lot, just the edge bent inwards and the arch maybe 3/4 inch rolled out.

I'm also thinking about putting some M3 Style 67 18" rims on, the staggered ones and I'll see how they fit, I'm not looking a rolling the fenders a lot more.

Bending the edge inwards and rolling out the arch Is considered rolling and pulling the fenders. Correct me if I'm wrong but i had to pull and roll my fenders to clear my front coilovers and needed to roll/pull the rears just cause of the height I run. I have 18x8.5 ET30 fronts with 225/40's and 18x9.5 ET40 with 255/35's.

Other one is my friends e36 compact with the 16x7 Style 32 rims. (not sure on offset)

Yeah, rolling the fenders

I didn't have to do the fronts as the front tires were going in just right not to need to do it for the fronts 225/40R18 on Style 189 8x18 ET34.
Rears probably needed a little more but I got some 17" Style 159 now and with the ET34 offset they actually are about half an inch inside the rear fender.

I always liked those Style 66's, might get a set if something comes up in the area for a good price.

Now have the OEM Style 67 M3 too and thinking if I should get the right tires to fit them on...
