Put the 16" +40s down and buy something worthy of your hubs.

        Suggestions on tire size please. 16x8, 16x9 et15 all around suspension will be megan coils, spun low. Will I have any rubbing issues with this offset?
        Thanks.

          I'm looking at running BBS RS070 15x7 et16 all around.
          I'm on IE3s with Konis on a late model.

          Do I need spacers?
          Will I rub?
          Do I need to stretch or roll the fenders at all?

          I have new 205/55/15 tires.


          Thanks!

            Putting 17x10, et 15, on the rear.....
            1. Using skinny tires, streched makes it easier.
            2. Using full size tires like 255 means major rolling, pulling, and streching the wheel well which usually means repaint and the stock look/lines are gone.
            3. Slammed/Lowered suspension makes it even harder.

            Is that about it?

            Thanks

              I dunno, I'd take a whole lot of OEM low offset wheels over those. But I see where you're going with it at least. :p

                15-20mm spacers all around to fit them.

                  195/45 205/45
                  195/45 215/40
                  205/45 205/45

                  Etc etc. 215/45, 225/40, 225/45 will all require suitable amounts of fender massaging to fit in the rear.

                    Should fit without rubbing.

                      You have the gist of it. In general anyone looking to run 255s on an E30 rear should be looking at +25 to +30 offset.

                        So if I do 195/45f, 205/45r, I'll be able to get away with out rolling?
                        Would 205/40 not be enough sidewall? Would prefer to have a little bit of beef to the tires so the 45's sound good but also don't want rubbing. Thanks for the reply and help.

                          Is this with severe fender rolling? As I understand it, a positive offset=more back spacing. so if a person wanted say 275 in the rear getting closer to a 0et would push the wheel away from the shock for clearance.....correct?

                            Yes, I'd suggest the 195/45 205/45 combo if you want to avoid rolling. 205/40 is too short of a diameter for an E30.

                              Yes, about the largest you'll get to fit on an E30 with just a basic fender roll (and NOT rub) is a 245. You're right on the offset explanation.

                                I have dtm flares That I'll be using. No rolling involved because I'll cut them out!
