Switching from 4 to 5 bolt... oh e30 curse you!

hello gentlemen i was wondering if it would be easy to switch from a four bolt set up to a five bolt setup. im of course refering to (dont know the technical name) the wheal holder things that the roaters are latched on to. ive heard that e30 parts can be interchanged with e36.. true...? anyways boys id really appreciate your help thanks alot.

5 bolts

I checked with Autotrend, because I wanted to do the same thing. Here was their response:


"Hi Autotrend,
If I have an E30 with the 4 bolt wheels, how easy is it to convert to a 5 bolt wheel system? The selection of rims and tires are far cooler. Is this something you guys can look after for me?"

There is no practical way to do what you want. Go to tirerack.com

e30 m3 parts are the right way to do it.

If you can get ur hands are the parts do it, but it wont be cheap.
