Default 16" BBS RK et 38 will it fit over a E46 330 assembly?

Car I am purchasing has them on it already, I know they will not fit over a E36 M3 caliper so hence the question.

TIA

Nope! The e46 330 has a larger rotor then m3, so it won't fit over the 16" RK's - you could do 300mm front - regular e46 front brakes - will be a upgrade from stock 286mm rotors, vented too of course.

No problem I have plenty of 17's was just trying to use them because I bought them for the Ti and M3 but unhappy with look on M3 as they are et38 so not the look I want even with a 25mm spacer.

Makes sense, they would fit over a 318ti stock wheels but if you swapped them out for e46 330 brakes then it won't work.

Good luck.

They fit fine over stock late model 318/328 barkes with plenty of room I was just wondering about E46 330 brakes because they are plentiful and there are some 16 wheels that fit over e36 M3 brakes and was hoping they would.

The offset of the wheels is what will give you the hint if it will clear the brakes or not- yours is et38, while the one piece style 5 16" (16x8.5)wheels are et13 so it can fit (as a example)- if you have low 20's et and lower it will probably work, but regular e36 et, like 30 some to 40's won't work.

Good luck!

Odd because the 16 contour replicas have an mid offset correct? Been awhile since I have played with a set.

Could be correct, not 100% sure since I don't know the specs, the above is just what I have seen from my own experience and others.
