2000 330i wheels on my 93 525i??

hi, i was just wondering how/if i could go about putting 17's off of a 2000 330i on my 1993 525i? i know they wont fit stock and i cant seem to find any wheel spacers big enough.... if someone could give me some advice that would be much appriciated... im new to the bmw world so i dont know much about them.

Thanks for your time.
Dylan

You can get them to fit but you will need somewhere around a 20-25mm spacer. The offset on the 3 series is around a 40 mm and the 5'ers are 15-25 depending on rims. I wouldn't do it myself and most guys would probably agree, there is too much stress on the hubs and steering components. You would be better off to keep looking for a set of 5-7 series wheels.
