Would these look good in e46?



I kind of like them, but i'm wondering if e46 is too new looking car for them.
What do you guys think?

Right now i have rusty steel wheels + plastic hub caps on my winter tires, but would like some better.

Those are Style 5s, from an E39 Sport Pkg. They are completely the *wrong* fit for an E46....the hub centerbore is too big, and the offset is ass-backwards.

Ooh... ok, thanks!
Then i don't waste more time thinking about them.

He says they were in e36 and according that should fit e46 just as well... but apparently he doesn't know what he's talking about.

My previous car was an E39 Sport Pkg. (purchased new), so I`m intimately familiar with those wheels....spent plenty of time cleaning `em....

Look for 17" CSl replicas like those on the ZHP. They are the best looking wheels for the E46 IMHO. The style 119's that I have are a close second in my opinion.
