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???

Thanks,

Jay

Jay...you'll need to add a 5mm spacer to place the fronts at 13mm,and only use certain tire sizes,and cetain tire models,but then they can fit.I used 14mm offset 17x8.5" rimsfor 2 years
