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

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
