Just put some BMW Style 5's on my wagon. The rears are rubbing a little bit when I hit bumps, so I'm going to have to roll or trim the inside fender lips, but I think it turned out pretty good. Next I need to get some lower profile tires instead of the balloons that came with these wheels.

Ilvmetal: Not an expert, but I would recommend googling reputable machine shops in your area. If you have the measurements already decided they may be willing to work with you

Not sure about machining, but if they're 2 or 3 piece you could rebarrel them.

Tires aren't too small, it just means the car is too high.

What size tires are those btw?

Wheels are good though.
