    New 17" rim - should we get them in S-Body fitment?

    These arrived today in BMW fitment - they'll be great on the E36...

    But do you think we should get some for the S-Body as as well?

    IMHO....no. Maybe in a 4 stud for S12 but realistically how many would sell. Just my opinion, other opinions are available

    I was half thinking on a low S13 with the right offset they could look good... but there again, what I like nobody else tends to, so you could well have a point

    S12s aren't going to buy 17s, there aren't many out there either

    Remind me of the old style touring car wheels. Wouldn't look right on an S-body imo

    If they were dished rather than pokey outey they'd be smart.

    The face is flat to the lip, it doesn't poke out if that helps?

    Don't think it'll sell in 5x114 for any jap car

    Would work well for German cars I expect

    Don't suit an s chassis.

    *Edited by Rarerims - jbsauce is a bit of a broken record. He also apparently wont be buying any wheels, which we're sorry to hear, but we cant win them all
