nice rims! the bolt pattern is the same and the lug bolts are the same length but the offset is differant. any chance you can throw them on before you buy them?
hope they fit would look good!

Yes, but the offset is lower - they'll stick out further than the correct offset 3 series wheels would. You might have to roll the fenders or get skinnier tires, but they'll work.

are your tires sticking out from the fenders a bit? if so rolling won't help. rims look good tho just need new lugs

sticking out isn't what I'm worried about, the tires rubbing on the fender is what I'm talking about...

what i'm trying to say is if your tires stick out from the fender, as soon as you step on the gas your fenders will squat onto the tires

yeah, that is happening and when i turn it rubs real bad...

if i can just bend the fender up a little bit, i don't think it would rub...

this pic is with a lot of air let out of the tire, so when the tire is full it sits higher...

there is a heat gun on sale here, i'm gonna buy that this week and try to bend it up.
