I have an old set of style 6s at my mom's house I was going to throw on just for something different but I'm not sure if they will fit. I believe they're 15x7. I also have a local guy who wants to trade me my style 68s for a set of style 23s. I've always loved the style 23 but I don't know if they will fit either and searching didn't yield any results.

Any help is appreciated.

This site will answer a lot of your questions:

http://felgenkatalog.auto-treff.com/

Style 6 is an E36 rim 15x7 with 47 offset. It appears it might fit, but since it is not specified for E46, I suspect it does not clear the larger brakes on the E46.

Style 23 is also an E36 rim 17x either 7, 7.5, or 8.5 widths, but never used on the E46. Since 17" rims with 41 offset usually do fit the E46, I suspect these will fit, but it is not a certainty. I recall I have seen photos of these on an E46, but it is not very popular since it is an older rim on a newer car.

Edit: I did a search for Style 23 on this site and found this thread claiming that the style 23 and most E36 rims do fit on the E46:

Thanks for the info. I looked on that wheel site you listed and saw it wasn't e46 specific but I figured they would fit given the dimensions. I just wanted to be sure. The M Contour is one of my favorite wheels so this should look interesting.

Thanks again.
