Will these 5-star AC Schnitzer wheels fit?

2005 325ci cabrio (5speed) ? I want the 18" x 8.5 set.

Always loved these 5-star ACS wheels.
standard 5x120mm, 43mm offset, center bore 74.10mm.
it's the 43mm offset I'm worried about. ??
Any adjustments/spacers needed?

The price is astronomical on this website, so I guess I forced to looking for a gently used set but don't want to waste my time if they cannot fit a 325ci.

Anyone? Anyone?

Probably going to be close to the fender up front, but I'm thinking they will work As long as you don't get really wide tires. I have an 8" et37 that fits fine which would be about the same position.

Will fit no problem. Could probably run 5mm spacers up front, you won't be close to the fender. I'd run 235s/40s myself with those.

You could run the ET36 offset and be fine as well.

It will fit, but it will be close to the fender. My 8" et37 had three lip of the wheel directly in line with the inside of the fender. My wheel and his will have the exact same outer position since he is running a wider wheel and I seriously doubt he could run a 5mm spacer without going to a narrower tire.

Edit: pic of my 8" et37 with 225/45-17 tire on a stock sport suspension.

Forgot to mention this before, but good luck finding a set of those rims at a nice price. Rims that expensive aren't sold in big numbers and are bought by people who tend not to buy and sell them constantly so very few are available. You're probably better off looking for replicas. Same thing with genuine BBS wheels...they are either expensive used or they are trashed and in need of refinishing.

Kinda wuz thinking the same thing. I mean, WHO is gonna buy ACS wheels like these (at initial astronomical prices) then sell them later when bored w/them?

This is either a pipe dream, or I may bite the bullet in the next year or so...
