Default Wire Wheels - Spreken ze Deutch?

Using Google to translate, or should I say mangle this site

http://showtime-hydraulics.de/

It would seem that they sell a wide variety of authentic looking wire wheels with bolt on adaptors. It looks like they do a 4x100 as well, probably for all those wannabe gangsta rap stars out there in the Fatherland pimping out their e30's

Anybody speak German? If so, could someone drop them a line and see whether those adapters fit the e30 hubs? fitment

The site says the wheels come with 4 or 5 stud adapter plates and the tools to fit spinners.

They always have all chrome 13 - 20"er's in stock.

They're shop is down for me at the moment. I'll write up an email and send later on today

There are places in the UK that still make wire wheels amazingly enough. For example:

Yeah - I've seen them before. The problem is getting a splined adaptor for the BMW hubs

MWS do some bolt on wires:

but nothing in the e30 4x100 fitment. The German ones didn't seem too bad - About 650 for four wheel, spinners & the bolt on splines if the eBay lisiting I found them on is correct
