offset works fine im not sure about the center bore...i have found that almost anything 4X100 fits...the BMW centerbore is smaller than on hondas and other ricers... so it should fit...unless its an odd size...what are the rims off of?

you have to give the width of the wheel when asking about offset; however, if the wheel is 7" wide or wider it most likely wont fit. the e30 center bore is 57.1mm so the wheels will fit on the hub with hub centering rings, but it may give you steering wheel shimmy and vibration.

you have to use centering rings on the wheels. the 40mm offset will not work on the front but it will on the back, you will have to use spacers all the way around to make it look right. you are better off finding a set with the correct offset. the centering rings will not effect the ride, but not using them will.
