Unhappy HELP ME PLEASE!!! need to fit 20's on my car!

I've got a 1992 320I E36. I have a set of 20s which im trying to fit on the car. The back fit fine (just) and the front wont fit as they touch the strut bar..

If i put spacers on then they will stick out too far and touch the guards and i won't be able to lower it..(which i need to do)

We have already tried hammering the strut to make them fit in and it didn't move at all...

Does anyone know how i can make my 20s fit?????

PLEASE HELP ME!

It's more that the wheel actually can't fit under the strut. Therefore i would need like a 50mm spacer which would push the wheel too far out and then the nuts wont be long enough to hold the wheel on and i wont be able to roll the guards that much...

Do later year BMWs have different struts?? Maybe i could get the struts off a later year...??

i tried something crazy like this on my 530i lol to fit 22s , me & the boys at the workshop swaped the left and right front shocks around thus moving the strut plates out of the way... but i dont recomend it because after all the hard work the wheels turned to be to heavy and i set bye bye to my diff i suggest u put a nice set of 19s with a big dish and drop it to the floor but hey thats just my 2 cents lol , happy dubing =]
