    Need a wheel

    Posted a while ago about a damaged Borbet rim - now officially beyond repair. So... anybody have any idea on finding a Borbet model S 18x8 rim? Tire Rack has the right style, but not in 18". I really don't want to buy a whole set if I can help it.

    Look around for places that exchange for core

    like rimpro.com. I got a flyer from them at the Kimball's farm thing in Mass last year.

    Well, here's another question - if I decided to go with a new set (gulp!) what other BMWs share the same bolt pattern & offset? Finding rims for an e28 is a little limiting - there must be wheels listed for other models that fit ours. Lead me, o wise ones.

    Do a search on the straight e28 forum here.

    and pay attention to the posts from Shawn D. He even has a spreadsheet worked out and ready for download.
