17x8 BBS RK (E36 fitment) on E90 sport?

I may have an issue getting my E36 ready for a BMW event and may take the 335i. Was wondering if my 17x8 RK's would fit or are the brakes too big? I believe the offset is 35mm.

I've put 17x8 +38 and 17x7.5 +35 wheels on my car before

However, it's not just an offset width thing, spoke design plays a role as well.

Since RK's dont have a huge lip or concavity, they should have no problem clearing the 335i brakes.

I would still suggest testing it though

agreed. you should test fit one wheel to see if it clears and then put them all on.

Curious about this as well, seeing I have a set of the same wheels that I thought would make great track wheels for the 335.
