17' wheel question ?

Ok so i bought a 2000 323i a few years ago and it had these wheels on it, im trying to find out what wheel it is as its a oem bmw wheel just never seen another one like it,, figured someone on here could shed some light on the subject,, I'm fixing to have them painted for my current 03 330xi as the wheels on it scream luxury and these others scream performance,, any help would be nice,,oh i forgot to mention I've looked at a oem bmw wheel chart with no success, although chart could have been a partial, thxs


Pic of the 330xi wheels will be going on

Agree. Didn't find them on the Felgen Katalog either:

Just because they have BMW center caps doesn't mean they're OEM BMW.

Not feeling 'em, especially since there are loads of better-looking OEM options out there. Sorry.

They don't look bad tbh, and if the wife wants them why not? Me personally I love the newer 3 series wheels or any of the m4/6 ones I wanna get some but all in it's time lol

OP, if the wife likes style 72 rims I have a set in great condition. They are 18 inch staggered rims.

Use one of the sites above. Since photobucket won't let us post pics I would have to email pics of what I have.

I understand the wife wanting what she wants, but the 72s are fairly light weight. I think about two pounds more than my style 68s.

Edit: I also like the wheels that are on her car now.
