    I have a '98 323is coupe with the stock style #32 15x7 wheels all around. I want to upgrade from 15" to 17" wheels but I want to stay with the OEM style #32's. I found them at finishline.com where they offer them in 17x7.5 and 17x8.5. Ideally I would like to go with the wider 17x8.5's in the back. I know that the 17x7.5 wheels will fit all around but I am not sure if the 17x8.5 will fit in the back (different style than the M3). Please help. Will the 17x8.5's fit in the back? Here are the links to the wheels:

    I just bought a set of Type 44's (replicas) for my 1997 3118ti. Wheels and Caps.com carries OEM and Replica BMW wheels at great prices. My Type 44 replicas were TUV approved, and made by the same manufacturer as OEM. They were even stamped with BMW part numbers. The replica wheels just don't come with center caps or lugs.

    Could be worth a look. I am completely satisfied with mine.
