    The bolt pattern works, but you'd need super long studs or bolts, and super thick spacers, at least in the front.

    For reference, OEM offsets are about 48, and center bore is 56.1

    I run 949 6UL 15x8 ET36, and I need 12mm spacers in the front to clear my struts. With ET25, you'd probably need approximately 1" spacers and long enough bolts or studs to work.

    I love the ARC-8's - I have them on my E90.
