GM small bolt pattern wheels on E36???

I've been told 5x4.75" wheels will fit an E36 which is 120mm (4.72"). Is this correct? I'm not wanting to run GM wheels, but I have several sets that I could use to pull my new-to-me vert onto the trailer when I pick it up, since it has 3 flats... I'm thinking with only 3mm difference they should at least fit good enough to load it on the trailer... yes?

hmmm... not sure where I came up with 3mm... guess its that new math. I just reread my post, and realized, it should be .030" difference, or nothing to worry about...

why all the hype?... try it on if it fits, GOOD ON YOU... if it doesn't... then junk the idea ....

if by your .030" u mean 30 thousanths of an inch; then yes, u have nothing to worry about ;-)

Because the car is an hour and a half away. I don't want to get there, and have to roll it onto a trailer with 3 flats... I'm going to try to air them up long enough to load it, but no guarantees. I'd like to know I've got 4 good wheels/tires with me...

Maybe you can diagram the GM wheels and take that to another nearby E36 and compare to bolt pattern.
