    Way too tall and it will rub. The 225/45/16 barely fit as is.

    225/45/16
    Dia 24"

    Would the thickness be the same for these 2 sizes?
    215/50/16
    225/45/16

    I’m asking because 215/50/16 seems a lot easier to find.

    Depends on the kind of tire you want. If you can go summer tires use the ones above, I have them and love them.

    Here is a cheap version if you don't want to spend that money. Unfortunately, there are only like 3 tires in that size.

    I also have 225/45/16 Dunlop Direzza IIIs on my car and also love them. Have done 7 HPDEs days, numerous Autocrosses and 3 trips from DC to the Vintage on them and still have life left in them.

    Evening, got a few questions in regards of set up.
    91 e30
    Wheels are 17x 8.5 et30 17x9 et35. 3pc wheels
    Can change the facing to help with offset by 5mm if that helps in any way.

    1) what size tires would fit?

    2) can these wheels fit in the e30? Would the 4x100 to 5x120 adapters work with the 20mm?

    Thank you in advance

    15x7.5 et0 had 205/55s on it, partial roll, lips are at like a 45° angle. took tiny slivers from the sidewall but wore the tread out before getting sketchy. If I roll the rest of the way would 205/65s fit?

    Only took me 3 years to buy the wheels and test fit them :D. Had to use a 3mm spacer up front to clear the stock calipers, these Works have a very flat disk.

ID:	7201715Thinking this might be as close to German aftermarket direct fitment for an ix? I might find?

    Specs. 88ix with Blistein/ HR sport so lowered just a tad.
    15x7 4x100 cb 57.1 et38

    Artec made in Germany unknown year.
