These are 17 inch Style 5 wheels from an E31, 8 series car. These have a slightly different offset compared to the same style wheel found on the E39 (5 series) cars, plus they do not require the adapter rings to correct the center bore.
This set has been refurbished with new paint and polished rims.
They're staggered, 17x8 in the front, and 17x9 in the rear.
I also found these original BBS 3 piece metric wheels. The original owner told me the car had these when it was new, so I thought it would be nice to reunite the car with a set.
I think they will clean up well. Since I now have 8 metric TRXs, I'll pick the best tires to have mounted on these wheels (for show use only)
