HRE wheels for BMW, what else will they fit?

HI Im the lucky owner of some HRE P40s and was wondering which other auto manufacturers these wheels will fit?
I understand porsche is a no no, but what will they fit?

They must have bored out the bolt patterns or use a bolt pattern conversion spacer. The most audi and vw uses a 5x112 while some pay use the Porsche pattern of 5x130. BMW on the other hand uses 5x120 and is uniquely BMW.

the only other car that i know that might work is the the new Chevy Camaro

the offsets are a little too aggressive on the back but it should work fine.

Some VWs are 5x112 but some are 5x120 but the offset and center bore are different from BMW so the wheel still wouldn't work without some additional hardware.

Its a spacer that also changes the bolt pattern of the lug bolts. Not the best way to put new wheels on your car but it works.
