I am looking to pick up a set of rims of a buddy of mine. They are on his 3series 5x120 are there spacers i can get my 5x112?

If so where?

I think you mean adapters which convert the lug pattern in addition to acting as a spacer, not just a spacer...if you search google you can find these but they're expensive and not really worth it IMO unless you reallllly like the wheels and don't mind running adapters

well they are expensive, and are usually like 20-30mm thick which is crazy wide and unless those wheels have a very high offset and arent wide you will have multiple inches of "poke"

I've had a set of custom machined spacers made for my application. They will also make bolt pattern conversions, but as stated above the minimum thickness would be 25-30mm. This is due the the head height of the 5 bolts that will attach the adapter to your wheel hub.You will need to take this thickness into account when looking at the offset of the wheel.

well considering that the post doesn't include the width or offset it is basically useless.. Regardless it isn't worth it imo. You can find those same or very similar wheels in the correct lug pattern.
