    Depends on which BMW wheels you're looking at.

    Golf MK2 Specs are:
    The PCD (stud pattern) for all MKII's is 4x100
    The centre bore is 57.1mm
    Base offset is around +40 depending on the model.

    From what i found on BMW 4x100 Wheels (OEM ones)
    3 Series E21 = PCD 4x100, centre bore 57.1mm and M12x1.5 bolt thread. ET 12-20
    3 Series E30 = PCD 4x100, centre bore 57.1mm and M12x1.5 bolt thread. ET 15-3

    If it's these type wheels where it's same PCD, then you just need to double check CB. if centre bore is 57.1 as well then it'll fit on fine.
    Offsets will matter depending on how you like the wheel to sit against your fenders.

    Thanks


    They are E30 6.5X14 BBS Cross-Spoke Basket weave with an ET of 38

    or 330 7x15 with an ET of 24.

    The car has standard suspension and is not lowered.

    I have 17" x 7" ET35 wheels with 205/40 17 tyres and they are rubbing on my Mk2 Golf Gti?

    The previous owner has fitted Sachs suspension which I believe is lowered.

    What is the best way to stop it?

    Replace the wheels or the springs?

    Any 3 series wheel up to e30 will fit. I had e30 genuine 15"bbs wheels with e30 sized tyres on lowered suspension and it still fit, a bit of scrubbing on bumps, but livable.
