Thumbs up

Hi, been offered a set of 18" M5 rims. Bolt pattern is 5x120 as per E46, but the offset is only ET20. Has anybody else tried these wheels with any success, or have any usefull advise?

As far as i have seen/heard, you cant get the REAL M5 wheels on an E46. You need to pick up replicas.

The wheels will stick out of your rear wheel wells with an ET20 offset. You can't put M5 or for that matter M3 wheels on a non M3 e46 3 series.
