I also got some 255/45R17 and 275/40R17 free as well. sumitomos. Not the best but cant beat free. Only thing better is getting paid for it

yes sir. very close. BMW 5 lugs are 5x120mm.
ours are 5X120.7mm
Now mind you dont start stocking up on every rim you find. Make sure to check on the offsets.

Well the tires are mow mated to the rims. they look good. I cant believe the original tires on the rims were 215s on the front and 235s on the back. You shoulda seen the tires straining to stay on. The 255s and 275s look much better. The rears could easy fit 305s or 315s.
Heres the pics
They are a little scratched up but they are painted so i can clean them up and paint them later.

yeah, i think the rears are 10 possibly 10.5. 9.5 fronts for sure. 255s fit the front great with room to add so i might be able to stick 275s on the fronts later and 305s on the rears as well. Im very happy with this find lol.

New rims on the car

PLease dont stare too hard at the bigger profiled front tires. That will be fixed later with different tires at a latter date lol. Probably could still got to some 275 on the fronts. Maybe. I might stick to 245 or 255s though in the front to keep tires cheaper. we will see.
