New Wheel Idea - Dont Hate

Came across a new wheel setup on craigslist...

im sure others have ran them on BMW especially the E36 gen.

Corvette Sawblades... I found them for 200 the entire set!

17x8.5 et 56!
17x9.5 et 56!

it would be a different look... im kinda in the mood to start being a wheel whore!

thoughts on running a 56mm offset? IM almost positive it will need ATLEAST a 10mm spacer.



not feeling the green, but its different!

not hating in any way, but i don't think its unique or new. I've seen sawblades done on pretty much every car out there. Too many people have done them on too many cars.

i'd go with another set of wheels.

Just my .02

You'll need some pretty large wheel spacers to make those fit (probably around 20mm or so).

Honestly you would need probibly 40 mm spacers and be really agressive to pull those off. NTM they are 17s. i dont think i have seen any 17" wheels on an e9x look good.
