Picked up a set of Staggered 17" Style 5's tonight. Pumped on them. Here's a couple pics of them thrown on for now. Going to drop the front tomorrow.

One of them could use refinishing on the edge of the lip due to a rub on the way home *thmbsdwn*

Can anyone suggest the BEST place I can have this done and how much I'm looking at?

Looks really good, congrats on the "new" buy... how wide are they?
Also, just polish the lips, so this way the rub mark will come off.... and roll your flares so it won't happen again

Nice find! I actually have a set of style 5s (non-staggered*thmbsdwn*) that needs to be redone. I was quoted around $125-$150 per wheel by Rimworx in the east end. For that price he said he'd polish and powdercoat.

Got them from a member on the forum. Pongs318. Really random, lucky find.

I can't decide if I'm going to polish the lips or not.

I'm def going to be keeping the K1's for the track. Now I don't have to run R-comps all summer! Gonna paint them some kind of wild color.

Very nice rims.

Tried a 5MM in the rear, but the tire is right against the fender, might get them pulled a little.

Rims look nice, but that small of a tire on an e36 looks silly. Its even undersize for an e30, let alone an e36.

It's the only way the rims will fit.

yeah, 205s are horrid, way too skinny when stretched. 215s will fit front, my style 5s are 8" all around, so I am getting away with 215s now.

Ya I'm going to see what I can do once the fenders are pulled.

They wouldn t be so bad if our roads were good, but unfortunately they aren't so you will something with a beefier sidewall. Mind you if 205s came in 50 or 55 heights then they would be fine

see? 205s with 40mm sidewalls are way too thin stretched :( http://photos-e.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs085.snc1/4782_102506694640_515489640_1781272_7571138_n.jpg

I just took a trip downtown hamilton and it was a complete disaster. Came home to see why:

It's just completely impossible to have the car this height and be able to drive around without scraping every other minute.

So these fit onto E36 without those rings? What about spacers, you got them?

Just a 12mm in the front. I needed it because I have quite an insane amount of front camber which made the wheels sink in. Plus I needed them to match the rear 9" rim.

As much as the scrapping problem is a annoyance, having a nice stance like that is worth it IMO. I need to grab some spacers for my front and rear aswell.

11-27-2009, 04:22 PM
Looks slick man. But I don't get why you guys would want spacers. I thought the whole problem is that they stick out too much and you need to run skinny tires. If you have room for a spacer, you have room for a thicker tire!

And Ravi, why are the lips on your style 5s so tiny?? Are they 7.5" width rims or what?

Wow those rims looks sick! Only other choice id pick other then the 19" bbs ch i got on mine!

If I didn't run spacers in the front, it would be sunken in and look retarded. lol

Spaces so everything is flush with the fenders lol

My style 5 are made for e36, unlike the others so I don't get that nice lip. Right now I'm running 235/40/17 and prolly can go with more meat on mine *uzi*
