it says that these wheels only fit 5,6,7 series. but i've seen someone with these wheels and they look absolutely badass. anyways, these wheels are 18x8 and 18x9. they have an offset of 20mm and 120mm bolt pattern. -thanks guys

You need to look into replicas for those wheels. I love M Prallel's.

I heard they're soft wheels, many people have bent these replicas easily.

That offset won't do. Stock rims have an offset of 47mm. The lowest you can go is probably aroun 36mm. Don't use spacers or anything like that. Find replicas if you really like the rims.

yeah i've never used spacers and i don't think i'd ever put them on my bimmer. i'm thinking about finding some good looking replicas somewhere. do replicas usually bend easier than the oems?
