    Classy! Love it man. Keep up the good work. The 18" 5s look great on your car for what it's worth.
    Have you considered widening them?

    Ah, I didn't know if that meant you were wanting new wheels or widening those.

    You definitely don't have to make them three piece. Just get 'em banded.

    No one here in finland does that.. but while 1 of those 9" rims have been welded to fix it im happy to build them 3piece.. welded part reflects differently..

    Style 5's are a two piece wheel. The barrel cannot be on bolted from the lip, only the center. Only way you're gonna get more width out of those is banding them like Mike suggested.

    Those staggered 18's will definitely fetch a good amount whenever you decide to part however.

    Problem's with banding is that i don't want rims to in weird sizes and if i widen it 1" from back.. offset would gone -1 :E and front offset -5 on front that could be just fine but on back.. that extra 7mm is no near fitting thats why i was thinking to build 3piece..

    And also since no one in finland does that.. its BIG problem meaby i need to contact BBS and ask for wider lips

    BBS won't give you lips. You'll have to go aftermarket.

    Actually better news! claus said it is possible to convert but need to make unique lips&barrels and those parts for the set of wheels will cost more than actual new set of these wheels from bmw it self .. i don't know why its so funny but all ready those lips cost 200 / piece and you need 8 of em so.. would love to make unique set, but still considering what to do..

    Assuming you have 18X9ET24/18X8ET20 adding 1" of lip would make it 18X10ET12ish and 18X9ET8ish. As for not being able to get the lips widened easily near you, if you want wider wheels looks like you'll have to ditch the Style 5's.

    BBS won't have anything wider for the Style 5's because there was never anything wider than an 18X9 so you're kinda out of luck...

    If im right if you add 1" on outer lip.. it will take whole 25mm of the offset, not sure of this..
    but yea meaby i need to start looking for BBS GT:s cause those are 3piece and somewhat more easily widen..
