These are my new fav rims along with RS-GT, RGR's, and LMs.



Post pics of cars on Style 5s. These will be my next set if I can find some. How does one go about fitting them on a 3 Series? I thought they only come in lower off sets?

Some of those rims you pictured aren't Style 5's, they are BBS RS's

the style 5 have the straight lip, ya.

they will fit, u may have to stretch some tire, they come in 5er offset, but its not THAT aggressive (from what i have seen)

the last pic is the best example, that guy has more pics up, give a search.

^ yes. lug pattern is the same but it will poke out. requires some fender work and tire stretching at the least :)

On my old e34:


Same set on my 3 back in the day:

I would have kept them but the offset was too low and I was constantly rubbing. Wish I wouldn't have sold them though.

you had the wrong tires on there, gotta stretch a bit, but the offset doesnt look too bad.
Yea, I was running 235's. I would have had to go to 205's or 215's to avoid rubbing. Plus my car isn't lowered so it didn't look to good. They went to a good home.
