will these fit my car? offsets ok?

front:17x7 40mm offset

back:17x9 40mm offset

tires: 225/45/17

the wheels in the picture are 4 bolt.

But I believe those are ADR, and they should have that style that fits your car.

they would order a 5/120 bolt pattern. it's actually sportmax, i was looking for the adr's @ redline but they told me they dont carry it any more. i went to the next store (wheels direct) that's what i found close.

40 mm should be fine, I believe E36 offset is around 35mm.

35mm is actually really aggressive for an E36.

The fronts will fit fine, but you'll very likely have to roll the rear fenders, especially with 255/40/17 tires. And you're going to have some insane understeer with a 7" front wheel.

meaning i will have a wide cornering with those and probably lose traction?

wheels direct wont roll fenders, see, that what sucks about them. they would probably reduce the tire size to 245's. but i want the 255's could i roll the fenders my self? i know redline does it, but only if you buy the stuff from them i think.

SportMax wheels are REALLY cheap BTW. I hope my friends down there aren't asking you too much for them.

And they had a fender roller, but then someone borrowed it and never brought it back. Never bothered getting another one.

hehe, thanks mystikal, they gave me 1500 for wheels/tires

i see, that's why they wont roll the fenders, my bad..

Yeah, that's a fair deal.
