- 25 Nov 04:25It's a shame you had material ground off the hubface of the wheel as that has rather devalued them, if you intend on keeping them then no big deal I guess.
They should fit with ease with nicely rolled arch lips, grinding the lips down will give more clearance but you still have a nice horizontal edge to snag the tyre if you ever change tyre size, get the lips rolled nice and flat and I don't think you'll have any fitting issues. I had them on my E28 on 100% standard arches but I never used wider than a 235 on the rear.

Subject: [bmw e28] 8 and 9 inch bbs split rims
I have recently put some BBS split rims on my m535i and have put 8
inches on the front with no problem but the 9 inch ones i have put on
the back were rubbing on the inside of the arches. I then took it to a
mate who helped me ground the inside of the arch off but they were
still rubbing so i had 5mm taken of the inside face of the wheel that
faces up to the hub on the axle but they are still rubbing a little
I would really appreciate some advice on what to do next as i can't
wait to drive it again with these gorgeous split rims on.
I don't know whether to grind a bit more off the inside of the arches
or have the arches rolled.
Please help as i'm missing driving my beast !!!
