My dad has a 91 M5 w/the throwing star rims.. and one day as we were working in the garage.. I thought--hey lets throw a couple on my car to see how they look!

The back fit great, but the front brakes did not clear the rim. So, unless you have different brakes, I think you would need a spacer.

: : PS - Do you have a set of throwing stars, or a line on a set?

: : I had a set of 91 M5 wheels on my 90 M3 and it was not direct fit on the front.I needed hub centric spacers for them.They were about a 1/4" thick.
