that looks like a FANTASTIC buy for $200. your camera, however, has SEVERE barrel distortion (look how the middle two rims look 30% smaller than the outer two..)

what size are they? how much are tires? i wanna change my stocks sometime

Hate to tell you, but they probably wont fit right. The offset on the e36 is between 39-41mm

well the dude said the rims came off of his 3 series bmw and I didnt even tell him what kind of car I have. The rims are 17x8 5x120mm. So if you say that the e36 offset is between 39-41mm and these rims are 25.4mm what would that do to my car? Will it still fit? WIll it rub? I'm lost, please help.

What do you all think about this rim. This guy is selling them to me for $500 with 80% tires on 235/40/17 bridgestone tires. Is this a good buy?

Should I go with the other chrome rims above for $200.00 no tires or these rims which I probably can lower down to $400.00??? please advise.
