I'd like some advice on the questions I have posted.

..not just to be bashed for my opinion on fitment itself.. I respect that preventative maintenance is a 1st for many, and I have spent a lot of time and money doing such.. for instance, replacing my suspension and cooling system.. among a hundred other things

dmax, I won't criticize your OEM-loving 'dogs and men', if you don't criticize me for modding aside from your liking. I'd appreciate any help I can get please.! I've been searching the forum for a year now, though this is one of my first posts.
Okay...good answer...so I'm back to protect you now! But if I catch you going more than 13.4% off stock, I'll be back!

But can we bash you anyway until the thread gets moved?

330eye,

You aren't getting flamed for wanting new wheels but when you say you are a college student and on a "real budget", you are being told to stop and think about what you are doing. Most of us agree that you can do what you want to your car, but when you ask for information, even if it about wheels, and tell us you are on a budget, we just want to help. We care about cars and whether you think so or not, we care about car owners and try to help.

Good luck, enjoy the car for what it is and mod as your budget allows, but make sure the running stuff runs.

Max

My Ride: 2001 ZSP 330i
Well I did it! This was my test fit, (I swapped back to my m68's until I can roll my fenders).

OEM e38 M Parallels:
8J x18 et13 fronts running 205/40
9.5J x18 et25 rears running 225/40

Wheels were $500 on craigslist in SD, tires are Yokahama S-drive @ $138 per wheel.

No need for spacers, the offset put me right to the fender.. wayy more aggressive than I thought. I'll post more after I roll my fenders and adjust my ride-height. Not a bad look for the budget I made!
