Several E36's here has E46 M3 wheels.
Not sure if they use spacers or anything, but I don't think soo.
If you have, just test them on

Ok that explains it.
Looked it up
Normal E46 rims use the same ET range as E36.
E46 M3 front rims fit on E46 and E36 all around, they are 8,5" wide.
However E46 M3 has too low ET in the rear. They don't fit either E46 nor E36.
The rear have the same ET as E39, in the 20-25 range.
I know of one that has them on a 328i E36, but he has rolled his fenders and turned down the rims to a higher ET.
The others seem to have front wheels all around of copies made to fit normal E46's.

Yours are options for all E46's, first came with the club sport package I think.
M3 wheels look and are different. Your wheels don't fit on E46 M3's.
These are M3 wheels:

So then what are ///Motorsport wheels? Not trying to argue...just confused.
Can i rub my genitals on that ///M?

I think they got the ///M because they are part of some sport package/s. It's sort of a marketing thing I think.
They do fit your car very well and I really like the colour of yours too
Feel free to rub that M3
