If you search eBay for BMW OEM E36 17" <or INCH> WHEELS, you will get some
pretty nice choices. Try 16" and 18" for additional options, or simply try
BMW E36 OEM WHEELS and get all ot the choices at once.
The trouble, if ANY, is that E46 wheels MIGHT be wider for the rear than the
front, and this might present the E36 with rubbing issues on the rear fender
The bolt pattern and offset is fine, and if the rims are 17 x 7.5, then they
are fine. But the rear wheels on a 330 can be 17 x 8.5 or 18 x 9, and this
might rub on the fender openings of the E36.
I have 17 x 7.5 rims from a '95 M3 on my '94 325i, and they fit very well. I
am not sure if a wider rim will have enough room ...

the ? and get more information, including size. My car came with Style 17,
and I recently switched to Style 22, thanks to eBay.)
