Unfortuneatly they will not fit. They have the wrong bolt pattern size (5-130). BMW's have 5-120.... Plus, even if it were the correct pattern, the centerbore for Porsches is completely different than BMW's. Finally, the offsets are completely off as well.

Breyton Spirits look similar and you can get in the correct bolt spacing.

Fitment Check Results

The Victor Lemans - Black 18" wheels will not fit a 2005 BMW 325Ci & 325i.

We do not list that wheel in that particular bolt pattern (5/120) in 18"


The website has a fitment guide. ('05 fit is a safe fit for '06)


Try the tirerack.
