    bolt pattern should be metric...
    5x 120.65
    but since 4.75" = 120.65, the bolt pattern is perfect.
    I have the 18x10.5 +58mm offset C6 wheels... I use a 1/4" spacer in the back.
    Fronts, your are plug and play.

    ironically, medical field and even car manufacturers use metric... lol
    i said that earlier because some wheels are 5x120mm which fit the BMW... the little difference make the nuts come loose.

    Eugenio, do you have any problem with the spacers your running and what brand did you go with? I heard many things bad about spacers. Such lug nuts coming loose and lug bolts breaking, but only hear say. Haven't really known or heard of anyone experiancing such isues. Reason I ask is because I also want to bring out the rear a 1/4" it makes the wheels almost flush and would make them look much better. I like your set up by the way, really clean and kick ass.

    Just make sure the spacer is hubcentric and you are ok.
    I'm using a custom spacer.
