Wheels

I tried to answer my question by reading previous posts, and I am sure it has been asked and answered before but, I could not find a clear answer so....once more I put to all you aficionados out there.......

Can I match the e28 18" staggered parallel 5 spoke wheels with my '87 e24? Adjusting the tire size to match the oem circumference? I have a line on a set of wheels but before I pull the trigger I want to make sure they will fit....

Wheels

I got an 88 E24 and I have issues finding the wheel studs because the rim and tires did Not fit at front. In the back they fit well. However you can see space from the tires to the nody of the car. Any recommendations?
