Comming out of the parking lot while I was pulling in the other day was a last gen 5 series with what I would to call 'dished Parrallel' rims.

I love the dished Parrallel look, but my search to identify this rims (which I've seen on last gen 5 series before) have turned up zilch. Can anyone help me identify the proper name of the rim, and more important know of the feasibility of squeezing them into a E36 wheelwell?

Appreciate any assistance you may have to offer.

The look (like this)


BUT-- 'Dished' like these



Thanks again
NL

that is them in the first pick...The actual 5 series versions WILL NOT fit correctly onto an e36 because of the offest. The offset of the 5 series rims is about 20mm where as the suggested offset for an e36 is about 35-40mm.

However, e36 replicas of the M-Parallel rims you like are made and sold at aaarims.com

Just look on the side navigation bar for BMW Specials and choose 3 series rims. They do look sweet as hell on an e36 because one other members here got them and posted the pics...

Wahoo!

Im sooo happy that they make em for the E36 (even if they are replicas)

As soon as I saw them, I knew those where the ones I wanted. They look great, and I love the fact that it keeps the car still with that stock BMW look. Im hoping to find em in alloy though, but Im sure the chrome will grow on me

Thanks sooooooooo much for the help!

Now the question is Mastercard or Visa!

BTW.... has anyone here had any luck with spacers? I imagine this does correct the offset problem???

Do you know which member has em? I would like to see if I can see em on a E36 even though I have little doubt they look bad-ass on em.
