Wishful Thinkin

Hey guys, i was at a buncha car dealers today, and i couldn't help but wonder...........my al time favorite OEM BMW rims, and one of my favorite rims PERIOD are the 17" deep dish 540i rims, style 5 i believe.
ANYWAYS, i was just curious, is there ANY way you can get these to fit a E36 and what am i lookin at cost wise? Also are these real 2 piece rims, and lastly anyone wanna trade for some M 10 spokes?!

No, you can't unless you don't mind your rear tires rubbing.

I don't know if you saw my car with rims meant for the 5 series but:



Any slight bump and they rubbed.

If you can get you hands on one and can bring it to a wheel shop like Cheap Thrills in Milton, they might be able to alter the offset (if there's enough meat) to fit an e36. I've done this before long time ago for an accord, and they shaved off about 3-4mm so my tires wouldn't rub.

Those are my all time favorite rims as well!! I wanted them badly for my car as well. Thats why I went with my current ones... very similar but larger space in the spokes...

They should fit
Alot of people use only front from E39 M5 on their E36s.

But UncleJ front wheels look wierd.
