Share your 5 lug setup and wheels

O I havent seen a thread like this, Maybe there is and I just skipped over it or I wasnt looking in the right place.
If there isnt one then maybe we can make this one a sticky.
Pretty much this thread should be What parts you used for your 5 lug swaps, be it e36, e36 m3, e30 m3, e30 and different hubs. What shocks, springs, wheels, tire size, etc.
This should save a lot of the trouble of people having to search for the info and asking dumb questions.
Post a few photos of different wheels and tires that you ran or run. Be specific with the details of your setup and dont leave anything out.

Maybe we can get a good thread going and maybe a sticky.

setup: e30 m3 everything
Wheels: Kosei K1, BBS RS, Team Dynamics, and Stock e30 m3 wheels. I have them all and I rotate depending on what I need them for. Shared with my m3, everything is interchangable -- it's nice

15x8 et22 Kosei K1 on TMS J-stock suspension:


15x7 e30 m3 stock wheels on H&R Sport Suspension:

E36 m3 front with shocktowers drilled to use 96+ e36 m3 strut hats (more caster). Oh yeah, running L hat on the right and vice versa, more camber that way. In addition had to shim strut where it attaches to knuckle to get ~2* camber. E30 m3 control arm bushings.
318ti rear
E30 m3 springs, and e36 konis all around (no issues with rear which is cool).
DS1 powdercoated mirror black with 215/40/17's. Currently refinishing some 16x7.5 et35 3 piece fittipaldis that just BARELY clear the m3 brakes, gonna rock 205/40/16 Azenis RT615's i have laying around from my VW days.

Don't really have any good pics of it, have some showing the shiny wheels and one of what I did to the shocktower.

Car is up on stands with no motor awaiting s52 powah for spring.

they are ET30 and are in "ok" shape, center caps are brand new in box. It's not a listing, it's actually a friend of mine selling them. Only thing I don't like about them, is that they cover up all that 5-lug labor of love with center caps. They look awesome though.

heh well i have no idea where the center caps for my wheels are. I would say mine are in "ok" shape also. I am pretty sure they aren't bent anywhere (havent looked really closely at the inner lip, though), they just need a good cleaning, and would obviously look better with a repaint. i've thought about keeping them for some kind of winter tire, but the fact is we don't get enough winter weather to justify that, in my opinion (even though some people here, even with awd and 4wd run studded tires from november to april).

I love the way your E30 looks with those E36 motorsport wheels.. I may have a lead on a set of those for myself but i wasnt sure how they'd look... thanks for posting that pic.
For the time being i have a set of 16" style 30 wheels.

still waiting for bavarian auto recycling to send my rear Z3 hubs.. do these guys normally take forever to get stuff out? i guess they must be busy as hell most of the time
