    Looking to mount Borbet Type S wheels on a H&R lowered 318is. 16x9 et15 w/ 205/45 rubber, 3mm spacers in the front. Will I need to roll any of the fenders to prevent rubbing? Should I go with a different tire size (without looking dumb)?

      205/45 of 16x9 is already very undersized rubber with some real stretch and would look goofy.

      you will need to roll the fenders.

      Also I looked around the internet for 235/40/16 and all I found were these tires

      235/40/16 is much better fitment. Too bad they are hard to find
      It should be the right amount of meat on the bone especially width wise

        Azev?

        Are these the AZEV A? On an Alfa Spider. They look good! They might be staggered - hard to tell from this pic.

              These were on a parts car I picked up. I can't find any info on them. I know they are BBS by the markings on the wheel.

              Any idea the model?
              Rarity?
              Value?

                BBS RD, kinda rare, not too desirable. Worth maybe 5-800 depending on condition

                    Anyone try these Corsa GT Steelies yet? They look like they might clear the calipers in the front, but F@#$ if i know. I'm not trying to space the hell out of steelies again. Thanks. 16x8 5.00" back spacing 4x100 in photos.

                      there was a thread about them a while back. Apparently someone emailed them and they weight like 28lbs each so everyone in the thread (including myself) jumped ship

                      steelies look damn good but not worth the heft IMO

                                How do you tell the difference between the replicas and the real thing?
