Keep in mind that BMW wheels have a 5 X 120 MM Bolt Pattern while the 4-3/4" GM bolt pattern converts to a 5 X 120.65 MM Bolt Pattern.
This will make it tricky to get the wheels properly installed.


There is a chance the wheels on the Corvair might be aftermarket, or possibly from a late seventies Camaro Berlinetta.confused smiley

Those are aftermarket Enkei 92's. As sold by Pep boys and others back in the 1990's.
They are coming back : [enkei.com]

I've always thought that the LM had lines similar to the BMW CS, and considered getting one to modify.

Someone beat me to it.
