as above will 5 series fit a 3 series? whats the diference? and as for ofsets is it say a 35 offset compared to a 25 offset mean the 35 is closer to the inside on car and lower the number the nwider out they go? thanks
yeah, basically it will mean the centre of the wheel is 35mm from the hub as opposed to 25mm on the others so they will stick out 10mm further.
i'm sure someone will be able to confirm this 100% as i'm not really up on my wheel knowledge
thats put an end to that them lol thanks again a20:thumbsup well me post counts high enough so il put a wanted ad on forum now, had a guestimate measure and think 17's will go in my car ok but 18's will need arches done so see what turns up, thanks
Keep your eyes on the for sale section. There are often wheels being listed:thumbsup
Please be sure to post links to any wheels that you are interested in so that we can confirm/advise if they will fit:thumbsup
I imagine due to your trade you know people in the bodywork trade? If so, just ask how much it will cost to roll your arches. You may be pleasantly surprised and it will resolve a lot of issues with wheel fitment as the rear lip is quite a PITA:hihi
Sometimes you will only learn that you have clearance issues when you decide to take the family out on a day trip and realise that the extra weight causes rubbing on the rear arch:frown
i got a bodyshop 2 units down from my shop so il ask them, id love a set of 18's on there really so hopefully if i get the arches rolled they should go on hey? although the car doesnt look well low it really is close underneath lol :jaw-dropping
Rolling the arches will certainly improve your chances of fitting wheels and not having rubbing issues.
I will retitle your thread to that 5 series is deleted:thumbsup
Check out my albums in my user profile and you will see how low my car is, I have a boot full of ICE and can fully load the car with passengers without scrubbing issues even when driving on 20" RYM's using a 235/30 20:rofl
The only arch mods ever needed on my car was rear arch rolling and that was to fit the first set of wheels I owned and they were 18's. Arches have never needed to be touched since:thumbsup
