Going back to OEM

I have staggered 18s on a 2001 330Ci. I love them but the ride is harsh. I'm thinking of buying some 17in staggered style 68s. Will I notice a difference?

Not sure about ride quality, but your car will feel quicker and more agile

I went from Style 44's to 197's on my 325Cic and loved them. I suspect that you are still on your original suspension because you should be feeling a more stable and slightly firm ride. Style 68's are classic and a good choice for 17" wheels.
