Default 16 in BMW Wheels

Picked up a set of wheels and tires on Craigslist a few weeks ago. $150 for everything. I don't know what style they are but they are BMW Wheels (If anyone knows, let me know, I am curious). The tires are 225/50R16 and they fit fine, no rubbing and no fender rolling required. I was looking for these because I want to fit some e46 brakes up front, and I needed 16's to do that. Here are some pictures and a few before and after pics:

New wheels:


Old wheels:


Comparison:


Trying to show rear fender clearance:

Before:


After:


Just bolted right on, no spacers needed:


Also, here are some size comparisons between the 225's and the stock 205's. I also notice that the 225's seem to have a much flatter contact patch than the 205's did. They 205's have a very balloon like appearance compared to the new 225's.


Cool pictures:

Hey Derek! Great to see you on the board!

What are the plans with the E46 brakes? What are you going to do for the rear?

Roche! whats up? The guy I was gonna get some e46 front brakes from ended up backing out on me, so I've just been searching craigslist daily for e46's being parted out. Nothing good yet, I'd rather not go to a yard just because of prices. I wasn't really planning on doing anything to the rear brakes, any suggestions?

The only other BMW to get the five spoke wheels that came on your ti was the Z3, six cylinder cars only, '97 and 98 models, maybe '99's, too.
