where to find rims
 
hey guys, where do you go to buy your rims?

i'm looking for BBS style 5's but i want a wider rim then oem for a more aggressive look, is it still possible for me to find these?

I think it is impossible to find wider style 5's then oem i looked around for 4 months couldnt find anything, your best bet is to buy set of style 5's and send them to eric vaughn to have them widened that is what im doing with mine currently

any issues with the offset or anything if you widen it?

E39 style 5 would have a different offset than your car...they would stick out quite a bit and you'd have to do something to take care of fender clearance. Also, you need hubcentric rings. I'm pretty sure there are quite a few people here selling style 5 in various sizes and condition. Good luck!

Sorry for the thread revival. But just got my style 5's back from Eric Vaughn. He did a fantastic job. The wheels look amazing. I'm putting on a m3 rear end shortly so haven't mounted the rims yet so idk if there's any issues with the offset but when I do ill Forsure let you know
