Also one is bent, can you guys help on how to straighten the wheel? Rubber mallet?

Thanks in advance for any help.

They look like AC Schnitzer Type III Replicas. Not sure who makes the ones you have.The attachment is of the AC Schnitzer Type III wheel.

If it is just the Lip that is bent, it can be straightened with a dead blow hammer. Not to be confused with a rubber mallet. Rubber mallets are two soft and too light to do some thing like that. Judging from the picture, you can put a chisel to a grinder and round it to match the contour of the rim edge and use it to re shape the damaged area.

I would like to order centering rings since this came from an E39 car. Anyone know which size I need?

Check bmwe34.net under the heading Upgrades/wheels (if i remember correctly). They will tell you exactly what size you need.
