Actually, the 8" rims were the standard back then. I'm not sure when they switched--sometime in '98 or '99. Perhaps someone else knows the exact date.
: I recently purchased a '97 540i 6Spd and noticed the 17' 7 spoke rims are 8" for the front and rear. I thought the rear rims were 9" accomodating (255z40's). Does anyone know whats up?
