    91 318is tire fitment help

    I have a 91 318is that I have purhcased some Rays Volk BBS RS wheels for. The setup will be a 16x8 ET 25 in the front and the rear will be a 16x8.5 ET 18. I am also installing BC Coilovers on it. I am looking for a low profile tire, but don't want a huge stretch and obviously don't want to rub. Any suggestions or thoughts are most appreciated.

    You're going to be limited since there aren't as many tire options for 16" wheel anymore. You might find that you need to go undersized/stretched so that you don't rub. Play around with the wheel tire calculator online see what you can get away with.

      I'd run a 195/45 all around, but if you don't want a ton of stretch you could run a 205/45 in the rear. You will need/want spacers with those specs.
