Style 32's for e36 5-lug conversion?

Doing an e36 m3 5-lug conversion on my car and need some rim advice: Im looking at these 17x7.5 offset is 41 for the front, 17x8 for the rear. Can anybody help reassure me that these will work?

For fitment, I would ask in the tire/wheel fitment thread.

I really like those wheels. That auction is only for one wheel by the way.

Factory E36 stuff should be that offset and diameter, but 8" wide might be hard to find in for a 16" wheel. Especially factory wheels.

its true, but the only factory 16x8 stuff comes from 7-series cars, and therefore the wrong offset and CB. I am still tempted to get some hubcentric rings and put some et23 style 4's or 5's on my car and see how they fit. i would sacrifice having to raise my car or do some major fender rolling to have some style 4's on there.

edit for anyone who reads this: only the e39 CB is different. the 7-series wheels work, but have a very low offset.

clavinZERO:

Do you know if it would be possible to run the style 32 in 17x8 (et20) and 17x9 (et22) with your suspension setup?

The people who seem to run these wheels are on e30 5 lug swap parts. Would the E36 M3 front and Z3 rear setup not work with these wheels? Is there any other swap that would allow for those wheels?

Thanks for your help.

I came here to see what an e30 would look like on style 32 wheels, and left envious of this guys manicured lawn.
