Just put new 5 series rims on my 328
 
Okay I know the pics aren't the best but I just put them on. I'm missing 2 centre caps still. They rub like a bitch right now (245/40/18 all the way around) but I'll deal with that.

Go easy on me fellas I know the car needs a new bumper, fogs, and to get rid of all the yellow!

But anyhow tell me what you guys think of the rims. Pretend my car is clean:D

Fronts look like they are sticking out a bit, but it looks real nice. What type of roof spoiler is that on your car? It looks nice, and a bit bigger than ones I have seen.

Ya, the offset on the fronts are whack... but the rims actually suit your rear bumper!

i liek it...rims look fat, and it fills the wheel wheels nicely

Blackout: Its a reiger rear spoiler.

The front rims do stick out too much. I loved it at first but now I dont know. I think I may just take them off. I'll see how I feel about them in the morning.

keep the rims on, it looks good, theres a shop (forget which one) but they actually are able to change the offset of the rim (seems like its +48 right now) and they can shave it down to +42 - +44 judging on what you need. Ill try and figure out what it was

Yeah I like how the rears looks but the fronts... I dunno. Can you trim the edge of the front wheel? LOL. That will solve your problems.. heh

You have the numbers backwards. He needs a higher offset, which can be achieved by shaving material off the hub of the wheel.

Go see Trevor at Tiremag on Keele St. north of Hwy 7.
He machined my Rials (rears) approx. 7mm. Unfortunately, that was my limit.
You'll need to leave him the car so he can check for clearance etc...

BTW...those rims look nice on the E36
