I finally found the rims I want! I work at the drive-thru at a fast food restraunt, and I see BMW's all day, I notice that these are only on the 2001-2003 5 series models...

I'm wondering if they would fit on my car or not, I don't understand anything about offsets or whatnot... =\

The rims are part of the sport package for the 5 series and I believe their named the Cross Spoke 42 (according to BMW catalogues).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Go to www.tirerack.com They have many write ups on wheel sizes and fitments... look around ... study a little... then pick and chose... tire rack also sells a crap load of wheels for any BMW...

Good Luck,

Les

Good news and Bad news.

Bad news: OEM 5 series wheels will not fit our cars. I don't remember the offset but I remember looking into it and they won't work.

Good news: Replica wheels. thewheelexchange.com has a pair that are the same thing without the bolts around the lip, but there is a pair from aaarims.com that look exactly the same

I bought from aaarims.com and got mine fine they look great and I have no problems. Some people will tell you not to buy replicas, but there are high quality replicas out there. The other good thing about those replicas from aaarims is that they have a little deeper lip on them also. Check them out and let us know what you think.

Nice find. Gotta go witht he sponsor if he offers it IMO. Those are 18 and the replicas I put up are 17 so it comes down to size you want they both should fit fine, the 18s you may or may not have to roll your fenders.

You guys are awesome! Thanks so much for your help!



I'll definitely check out these sites, and decide what I want to do from there, I think I am leaning a bit towards 17's...

Edit:
The wheels on Jlevi SW are sold as a complete SET right? I compared the two sites, and I think I would rather pay $599 for the 18's than $695 for the 17's on aaarims, which also have a deeper lip.......

I can't decide =\
