Will 17'' E90 wheels fit E36?

Tyre messurement: 225/45R 17 91W



Will that fit my E36 without needing any alterations? I got standard suspension

Yes, they will fit, but they will look silly on your E36.

WHICH style of E90 wheels? They have a whole bunch of them that are considered E90 wheels. You can't just say "they'll look silly" without knowing what wheels he's talking about.

I guess it's all matter of opinion. While some E90 wheels will look better than others when fitted to an E36, it's still my view that all of them will look silly. Can't mix & match design languages, IMO.

Except that Style 5s and E36s are of a similar vintage/time period, and thus have a design language that is cohesive. The Style 5 is a pretty universal BBS mesh wheel (albeit nice looking), and one could also easily make the argument that BMW has been putting BBS mesh wheels on their cars for decades.

Haha yeahh. I just think you can make lots of wheels look good on e36's.

just depends on how you execute it.. the e90 wheels flow pretty well on this e36, I think

Nah, the post expired a long time ago.

The bend couldn't be too bad. You drove the crap out of it with those wheels 'n tires.
