      It'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 !!!

      Best Wishes
