They say that there are 102 sizes and styles of wheel that will fit the i3. Sizes range from 17 to 22" diameter and 7 to 10.5" width. Since the stock wheels are 5 or 5.5" wide, ALL of these are wider.
Also keep in mind the wheel offset. For instance, the [non-S] front wheel (5.0) has a 43mm offset that provides 1/2" of clearance from the strut.
If a replacement wheel width increases one inch to 6.0, the inside rim "grows" half of that difference (1/2") and fills the gap.
So to maintain the existing gap, the offset of the replacement wheel would have to decrease
by a similar amount (by 1/2" or 12mm).
The [non-S] rear 5.5" wheel has a 53mm offset.
