What a great look! Gotta love it!

But, I hate to even think how much the spindles and hubs cost! That wheel and suspension setup has to be expensive for a street car to run. If anyone has information on setting up the suspension to run these wheels with approx. cost that'd be a good read.

No different to setting up any other E30? The only difference is in how the wheels are mounted.

We can also make in 17", and 5x120 fitment

It sounds like they have blanks that they drill to 5x120. If that's the case then they may do a 4x100 if you ask/pay very nicely

I understand that, but I've read others much more knowledgable than me say that setting up the mounting hardware to run DTM style wheels on a street car is not so easy, and can be expensive.

I'd like to see some technical information on how to do this conversion, along with relative costs for the parts.
