Any good 17" takeoffs for e36?

I'm lowering my 325i a bit and I wouldn't mind taking a bit more of the weel-gap down. The suspension has taken up most of my car fund up, so I'm going to do a bit of Craigslist hunting from here on out. Does anyone know of any other car on which I could find decent 17" wheels that fit the standard e36? Maybe something with a more flush/stout offset?

E39 wheels will give you a pretty flush fitment (offset of 20)

See sig pic for example

Other 3 wheels won't give you flush, you'll need to go 5/7. All of them bolt straight up except E39, you'll need 1.5mm hub centric rings. I think you'll need fender rolling and pulling on all of them to make that offset work though.

just a bit of rolling, followed by a ruber mallet to flatten said rolling and your good to go.

oh and some tiny tires
