E36General discussion and technical help for (E36) 1992-1999 3 series cars. 318, 323, 325, 328.
They're wheel adapters. Shop around the internet, but DON'T buy cheap. I'm not a big fan of them, but a good quality set will accomplish what you want. Cheap ones break & easily. I've seen it dozens of times and it will mess you up when one breaks. especially if you drive like the cars' meant to be driven. BE CAREFUL.
Shop around and carefully. Check what their warranties are closely ...
I'm so adamant about it because friends' wife was hit head-on by a car that had one break. Tire & wheel broke clean off and car spun directly in front of her. She was messed up for a LONG time .
You might contact Tire Rack (and other wheel Tire co's) for their thoughts on them also

c1apton, sorry to hear about your friend's wife. Will take your advice, and how do I look for warranties? Since I am located in Brunei, will they warranties cover here....very unlikely. Thanks once again....If push comes to shove...would stick to stock rims...
When checking out adapters look for info, specs and if they don't mention warranty ask them for warr, info. If they're reputable, they'll warranty them anywhere. If they don't you don't need to be doing business with them. Don't get me wrong - there are some good ones out there, but there are some "borderline junk" ones too. Safety should be important factor when considering buying them.
I'ld rather see your car in your sig looking "sweet" than reading about a roll over or damage or injury.
Thanks c1apton....really appreciate the advise. Saw some on the net, made of aircraft alloy...they should be good enough to use, dont u think?
Aircraft grade aluminum is incedibly strong. Everything from plane fuselages, to landing gear, to the body of the HUMMER H1. But make sure its Aircraft alluminum (type 6 as sometimes called) and not an alloy, alloys arent as strong and less durable under stress.
