I've never felt totally comfortable with spacers. I did do 6mm spacers with my dinan wheels for a couple months, but that was just a DD drive.

Personally, I wouldn't mess with any stud conversion kits or spacers that change the bolt pattern. Obviously, the wheel to hub joint on any car is critical, so I wouldn't jeopardize its integrity for the the sake of a wheel.

Might sound harsh, but no, we buy wheels that fit.

Adapters are hugely popular in the Audi/VW crowd when they want to swap wheels around and also to run Porsche wheels. It's also big in the Honda/Acura crowds. H&R makes lots of different adapters to do this but not many for BMWs. It's a little unusual to hear about a BMW needing this but very common in the rest of the German tuning market.

A "spacer adapter" is just a thick spacer. The spacer is bolted to the hub in the standard bolt pattern. The wheel is then bolted to the spacer with its own bolt pattern.

For the OP, I don't know of an off-the-shelf spacer adapter to do what you need. You would most likely need a custom spacer machined. Nice wheels tho!

If you had them made by a competent machinist then you should have no problem. It's going to be expensive so make sure they are done right the first time. Spacers are nothing to worry about as long as they are manufactured and installed correctly. We run custom Forgeline wheels now but before that, all of our racecars had spacers and most of the people here have them on their street cars.
