      Everything depends on the current offset of the wheels. Without that, it's hard to tell you anything unfortunately.

      Where is it rubbing anyway?

          On the struts. It's only in the front though, and when using one of the wheels that have weights.

              Gotcha.

              If they're 7.5" wide and touching the strut just barely, they're probably ET40. Get a set of 15mm spacers, you'll be fine. H&R is always the preferred.

                  Don't really want to search through 141 pages for the answer to this simple question:

                  Will 13" wheels fit around the stock e30 disc brakes?

                    At the END!!

                    Well after the opinions of the members of the Forum here is the final stage of the car. I put 15X7 et12 wheels with 205/55/15 Continental Premium Contact2. I have lowered the car with 4cm APEX springs for 6cylinder BMWs. My car is 4cylinder so the final lower is smaller. However i had to roll the rear fenders, because with 4 passengers it was horrible. Maybe i should had put 205/50/15.:( Thanks all the members and especially Mystical.

                      BTW this is officially it for me guys. I'll be back the week of the 23rd!
                      So 235/40/17 would be a better rear option than 245/35 despite the diameter difference? Also, would 235/40 be horribly goofy on a 7.5" wheel in front? I have a set of yoko track tires kicking around my shop and I'm thinking about picking up the staggered SSR GT reps from Eurostop to stick them on.

                        ARe 235/45/r17's too tall for an E30 with h&r sport springs (i think that makes like a 1.5-2" drop) ???
                        I wanna run 17" wheels with my 5 lug swap and i have a stack of 235/45/17 tires in the garage from my volkswagen which i would like to use but I have only seen guys running 235/40's on an E30.

                          sorry if its been posted already but 141 pages is alot to look through :)

                          I have an 89 325i and am looking at a 15/8 et20 wheel and was wondering if it will fit properly with a 225/50/15 tire. I will be running h&r race with bilstien sports. fenders have not been rolled. Will I need spaced, will I need to roll fenders or will they fit? Or should I just get a 15/7 and a 215/50/15 ?

                          Thanks in advance!

                              no, not unless you run massive spacers that pushed the wheels away from the brakes.

                              I've got one - I'm running 235/50-15 R888s on 15x7.5" wheels (I think ET34??). I love the look/feel and I'd like something with a similar diameter/width in a street tire, but I don't know if anything exists, especially since the R888 looks to be quite a bit wider than a standard 235 street tire (makes the 235's on the front of my friends E36 look like pizza cutters). I'd probably run them on a 15x8 (if I can sell my euroweaves).

                              And here I thought I'd never fit anything wider than a 225 on my car :)

                                I will measure the 225 RS2's I got, they are actually wider than the 225 RA1's (helped being on the 8" wheels though).
