You may need to get 12mm spacers for any wheel under 18". For everything to work, you'll need new calipers (obviously), rotors, pads and brake carriers to hold the new calipers. You may want to throw in some reinforced brake lines if you plan on some tough braking.

I thought you also had to replace the spindles too?

The hubs are the same and in some cases they will fit. Good point though, you may need to buy some M3 spindles, but if you can, you should be able to machine down the carriers to fit the e36.

I saw a kit on a webiste a while back, but can't find it now. It was $1,100 for everything needed. It included new spindles, wheel bearings, and stainless steal brake lines. I thought it was a pretty good deal since all the parts were new, and not used.
