alrite people I'm looking at changing my rims in the near future, I
know i said I wouldn't but I'm gonna. Anyway I'm looking at a set of
M-parrallels for the e38 for my mk4 golf in chrome or polished, fronts
are 8" and rears are 9", so you reckon they would look good on a silver
golf?? If someone could photochop me a set it would be really gratefull.

Yeah I know, well my mate's mate who produces replicas down by devorn I
think, he can make me the alloys in any finish I want and provide me
with evrything I need to adapt them to the golf mk4 and the rims are as
cheap as chips. I baught my RS4's with Bridgestone potenza tyres on
them (partworn with 6mm thread on them) for ?450 inc p+p and free
balancing. So the M-parrallels shoould be around ?550 inc p+p, now the
hubadapter, I don't know if this is cheap so I'll put the price down
and see what everyone thinks (?140)

20" bmw wheels? lets not be silly here. stick with 19's max, but the adapters could cause problems.
LoL i said I can get em mate, didn't say I'd be using them. The max I
wanted to go was 18's due to ride quality, so I'm thinking twice about
the 19's with 9.5" rears...

Its always gonna be hard putting BMW rims on a golf. U wont be able to put 7/6/5 series wheels as they come with a very low offset ie 15et so with spacers they would be sticking at least 3 inchs out of the arches. Wheels meant to a 3 series has normally have the offset of 35-38 with adpaters will still be sticking out a bit.

Hence why i chose 18x9 and 18x10 porker rims .....
