In Reply to: et 18, 17x8.5 wheels??????? posted by Jay on January 11, 2001 at 10:48:35:

Do you guys think they will fit an 1988 535is? I found them at discount tire and they look like the BBS RK's! I called yesterday and the guy said the 8.5 is too wide for the front. I called today and another guy said they will bolt right on and that they were made for the older BMW's and I will not have any problems in the front because the 18mm offset it just right for my car???



Call Dinan, they've been running 17x8.5 with 235/45-17 all around for years. They do use spacers and I believe the offset ends up being around 23mm. Paul
