The Official Style 5s thread

These are my new fav rims along with RS-GT, RGR's, and LMs.



Post pics of cars on Style 5s. These will be my next set if I can find some. How does one go about fitting them on a 3 Series? I thought they only come in lower off sets?

Do they make any that fit directly on a 3 series (e36 or e46) or do we have to do modifications to fit them in?

the style 5 have the straight lip, ya.

they will fit, u may have to stretch some tire, they come in 5er offset, but its not THAT aggressive (from what i have seen)

the last pic is the best example, that guy has more pics up, give a search.

^ yes. lug pattern is the same but it will poke out. requires some fender work and tire stretching at the least

just roll your fenders, stretch some tires, and live with minimal rubbing

On my old e34:


Same set on my 3 back in the day:

I would have kept them but the offset was too low and I was constantly rubbing. Wish I wouldn't have sold them though.

you had the wrong tires on there, gotta stretch a bit, but the offset doesnt look too bad.

Yea, I was running 235's. I would have had to go to 205's or 215's to avoid rubbing. Plus my car isn't lowered so it didn't look to good. They went to a good home.
