Alloy wheel question

Thing is I have a set of custom bbs ch's from my old a4 could I fit adapters and fit them my e90 only thing is they aren't staggered and they will only be 8" wide wheel at the back. Even if I oversize the tyre will it look really stupid.

Didnt wanna have to sell them cause I love them

Audi PCD 5 x 112 - BMW PCD 5x120
Audi Centre Bore 57.1 - BMW Centre Bore 72.5
Audi Offsets ET35-45 - BMW offsets - E90 ET34/37

You'd really have to find out what the offset is of the custom BBS wheels to answer the question accurately.
I rather suspect the offsets of the BBS wheels would be lower than that of a standard Audi wheel, and would have the wheels sat further out in the arch.

An adapter could work, the problem with going down that road is that an adapter also acts as a spacer, so this pushes the wheel further out from the suspension to begin with, which is why knowing the offset of the BBS wheels is so critical.

Looking at the offsets of the standard Audi wheel in comparison to that of the E90 wheel, it could work,but the offset of the BBS wheels would have to be high (ET40+) to begin with.

An adapter is probably available to account for the differing PCD & centre bore dims between Audi & BMW wheels.
