Hi folks

Can anyone tell me which wheels will fit the 4x4 as the standard wheels are a bit naff. I want to buy one (the complete car) so if you have or know of a decent one I would appreciate it. Thanks

they run a different offset to normal E34.

i believe that anything in E36 or E46 fitment will fit, but not sure.

i have e36 spacers and e46 wheels on my us e34.. 5x120 - 19" x 8.5"

any should fit if you consider back spacing, brakes fit inside.ect

spacers or adapters will almost always get you what you want

the difference is in the offsets for the all-wheel drive verision.

I have E39 wheels and spacers 17X7.5 et20 F 17x9 et3 rear. Thats not to say our set ups would fit an "ix" car.
