E36's bolt pattern is 5boltsx120, also what is the offset of E30 M3 wheels? I'm trying to figure out if lilsmoothies E30 M3 Racing Dynamics wheels will fit. Thanks!

Vlad, are you 100% sure about that? E30 M3 is also 5 bolt, not 4 like most E30's

just to add something more than "no they won't"

the stock e30 M3 wheels are 15x7 with 30mm offset with a 5x120mm hole pitch

the hole pitch matches bu the center hub diameter is different, and the e36 wheels are around 45mm offset, so the e30M3 wheels on e36's would stick out an additional 1.5cm, rubbing the bodywork.
You can do the reverse (e36 wheels on an e30 M3) by using hubcentric spacers.
