you have to get the replicas, the OEM ones for 7 series won't fit onto your car

I am running 225 40 18's and I get a little rub over big bumps. Then again, my car is pretty low right now.

spacers will make it worse. The offset is too low for E36.

depends how much to shave, and then you might have problems with the spokes hitting the calipers.
