Welcome.

I am not sure which wheels will fit, but the bolt pattern is 5x120 with ET40; as long as it's like that on the car from which the wheels come from, it should fit fine.

Welcome

I think the wheel pattern for E36s is different from that on E30s. I am not certain. I know that, as Torque mentioned, the bolt pattern on the E36 is 5 x 120, with an offset range of 35mm to 45mm. I hope this helps.

E30's have a 4x100, no idea on backset. I think it's around 35mm, though...

Oh yeah, welcome!
