there is a member on here that has them on his e36, but I haven't seen him around recently. My mom has those on her e46, and they also look good on e36, especially with some low pros.

I got a buddy with those rims and another buddy who had those. (both e36's). Although you've posted int he wrong section i'm gonna tell you I just dont like them as much ont he e36. I think you need to look into a more sporty rim. Sorry.

The look good but the lip/edge of those particular rims cover the tires and are more prone than other rims to curb rash......

however I think they look okay on E36 cars...in fact most rims under 18inch especially OEM look great on E36 car!

like delmarco said they can get roughed up super easily. But they do look pretty good on the E36. Someone on here used to have those on his black E36 and had them painted black. That looked pretty trick

nice!! thanks guys, and too late for buying other rims, i've bought those for a very decent price. Now my next question is, will 235/45/17 fit my car correctly? or should i go with 235/40/17? I know that the stock tires on those are 225/45/17, but i want a wider, beefier look. let me know fellas, thanks!

Yep got those on my E36 Ti and I reckon they look good, nice and clean looking too.....not so sure I could tell the difference between 235 and 225 though........5mm wider on each side?

Best regards David
