Generally yes, but note that there are several different 328 rim designs.

All will have the correct bolts-holes & PCD, but later 328s have a "domed" or convex wheel centre instead of the normal "dished" or concave centre. The convex style came out on the ABS versions of the 328 and were made that way to account for the different suspension & hub geometry used with ABS. I have never been able to find out exactly what geometry changes were made in the ABS models.

All Mondial models use a similar-looking convex wheel but as they mostly don't have ABS (started in 1988) I very much doubt that the 328 ABS wheels are the same offset, etc as the Mondial ones. A straight swap may be safer with the earlier "concave" 328 wheels which should be more common anyway.

To do things right, measure the offset of your current wheels and then compare with what you are considering using. You should be able to get any vendor to measure the data for you. That way you will know if it will fit & where the tyre sidewalls will end-up with respect to the body & suspension.

You're right. There are 2 different 328rims. Pre-ABS and post-ABS. One is concave while the other is convex. So you have to be careful which one fits the Mondial.
