Default what were the original standard dakar wheels?

Does anyone know what wheels came standard on the Dakar 318ti? To see an original image of the car would be good if anyone has one?

Many thanks,

From the pix you posted, it's probably the Sport package, which would probably include the BMW Style 18 wheels. I say "probably" because you're in the UK and I'm not positive that the options offered there were the same as in the US.

BTW, the wheels on your car now look like BMW Style 68's, and I think those were part of the Sport package on the E46 models.
Real men know how to SEARCH!

Mods 'n' stuff: Star Spoke 43 wheels - X-Brace - Mason Engineering front strut brace - CF gauge overlay - ZHP shifter knob - Racing Dynamics cat-back - Doubled brake lights - M-tech rear spoiler

I'm ashamed that I haven't done more with this section.

Thanks to both of you. Wow, so they had 225's as standard. Oh boy. A hard ride is standard then.

Thanks for the spec though. Very interesting indeed.
