size, offset?

I have seen the "throwing star" style on E36s before.

It's been done, both staggered and non-staggered.

You have to run 215/40/17 tires all around, and roll the rear fender lips.

They're gonna stick out. So I would say no, because it isn't proper.

They look hot!

Apparently to fit the OEM M5 ones takes a lot of modifications to the fender, but they do have rep ones available.

Is it really worth it if you have to run 215s? I'd rather put in some correct offset tires and run 235/40/17.
