Hey Everyone,

I am trying to figure out if I can put e36 m3 rims onto my e34. Currently I am running 225/60/15s and the new rims would be 235/45/17. The bolt pattern is the same, I am just not totally positive that they would work. I want to be absolutely sure they will as the rims will have to be shipped to my location. Thanks for all of your help in advance!

no. 3 sereis wheels do not work becasue they are a 40ish offset like japanese spo com cars.
e34s use a 13-18mm

You could run them if you added 25mm spacers, but I don;t like spacers.
Why those when every other BMW except the later 3 series and its variants (e36, e36/6 (aka z3), z4, e46, e90) and the SUVs (x5, x3 prob x6) will bolt on.

Even z8s have proper wheels.

Thanks for the help guys, I have found a set of e39 rims I can use and I jsut have to get hubcentric rings at $4 a pop. I am trying to get some winter tires lined up for as cheap as possible!
