              Those pictures don't really do it any justice. It does look better in person.

                no offense, but you did a 5-lug swap to put those wheels on?

                  I like them. Definitely different, and seem to fit very well.

                    More or less. I have had them sitting in storage for like i said, 3-4 years, and paid way too much for them so instead of selling them or buying an e36 so I could run them again I gave my e30 5 lugs. It may be the wrong reason to do a five lug, but now when I plan on using the car for a track day I know I have plenty of brakes too! While I was in there I also did the stainless steel braided lines.

                    Partly for the wheels, partly because I got bigger brakes, more adjustment, and hopefully some better handling. Got the Front end aligned yesterday, did it on the floor with some help. I was over at PIR and asked one of the Pro3 drivers if he drove an e30 outside of racing and he said he did, and then I asked him who did his alignments. He said he did and that he would do mine, but that I would have to help, and that it would cost me $50. Scott from Adare motorsports, over in Spokane, WA. was who ended up helping me. Nice guy.

                      I guess you like the wheels if you paid for them in the first place. If you take the car to a track day, run smaller diameter alloy wheels. It'll drive much better.

                          My friend has them on his Henna M3, if that counts.
