    What is the "perfect" 15x8?

    What is the perfect offset for a 15x8? Something aggressive but no rubbing issues when lowered and no spacers needed??? Also, What is a good tire size? I like it to be smooth but agressive!!! Meaty is good but rubbing is bad! What do you think?? PICS PLEASE!!! ( I have a set of 16x7 konig remembers I need to trade/sell) Hit me up

    I ran a set of 15x8 +4 on 195/50s with no issues. Car is lowered as well. Depending if you have an early or late, youd be able to put more tire in there or go lower. I have a late

    edit: nvm the front end...its in the works. lol!

        The trm C1's are a +20mm offset. They seem to be the perfect fit for the e30. Not necessarily "flush" though.

          195/50 is very undersized. That's why you had no rubbing issues.

          They are pretty flush with a 225/50 tire on them. Some prefer some meat over stretch!
