hello guys
I have a question about PCD conversion spacers
honestly I am kind of tired of all the regular e39 wheel options
so I am just wondering how can I make the car fit different wheels
so far i could only find conversions from 5 x 120 to 5 x 130 (porsche)
which is also a limited arrange of styles
so I looked at other PCD adaptors...
and there are many like say 5 x 114.3 to 5 x 120 for example
do you guys think i could reverse mount the spacer and make the BMW adopt to 5 x 114.3 (or something else) wheels?

yes, you can get them custom made easily, but make sure you do the calculation to ensure the patterns won't either 1) interfere with each others, 2) enough material there to keep its strength.

this is how you calculate bolt patterns.

Why? Order some custom wheels if you think 5x120 selection is slim.

cause more cool wheels are in 5x114.3 than 5x120

I want to rock some 20x12 Volks TE37s.
