Question Wheel Help!!

So I know it isnt a Honda but I thought some of you stance guys would be able to help me out with this. I have a 92 BMW 318i 4door 5spd. I just picked up a set of 1989 corvette wheels. What do I need to do to make them fit.. here is what I know about the corvette wheels..
Wheel rim size - 17" x 9.5" front and rear
Offset - 56mm
backspacing - 7.4"

Im going to be running 205/40R17 tires on the set up. Im assuming im going to have to use spacers, just not sure what size I would need if I would even need them. I'm trying to get all the info I can together before I get the setup rollin. Any help would be great. Im new to the fitment game and don't know much about camber or any of that so go easy on me

It's been done. Isnt the pitch circle diameter a little off though? I don't think BMW and GM use the same pattern?

You need a pair of 2" spacers for each wheel, no extended studs required. You're welcome

Yes believe a chevy end up being 5x120.4, but if he's not using 5/8 studs they should still fit. Now the center bore of the wheel i have no idea.

Ya BMW is 5x120 and the Corvette is 5x120.5 or something along those lines. Had read that they make "wobble" lug nuts to fix this but have also read that its not off by enough for you to ever notice.

You've already been helped. Now either go check the fit, or use Google, or do something else productive. What's not productive is asking for answers that you've already received, or being unable to do anything to help yourself.

I have cleaned your thread of things that make you butthurt. I hope that changes your attitude. I took the time to make you less butthurt, now you should take the time to help yourself answer your question.

Please tell me you can gain enough context clues from that to figure it out. Then maybe you can take the context clues all of your fellow forum members gave you and leave quickly...
