    On an early car with stiff spring rates maybe. It'll rub occasionally on a late model.

      205/45 or 215/40

        How exactly is that going to look? is +22 a popular offset for those rims?

          would a 235/40/17 fit under a lowered e30? or would they be too wide?looking for the most tread widht i can fit without having to space the wheels and roll fenders, also what offest do i want? Im looking at enkei rpf1's in 17x7, now do i want a 30 INSET or 35? if neither will work what spacers do i need?

            I'm pretty new here and need advice on wheels. On my 5 lugged e30 (swapped from e36), I want to get 16" style 5s. Currently it has 16" salad shooters. Would the style 5s fit the same? Would they poke out? Would they clear the brakes? Thanks in advance!

              14x8.5 wheel + 205/60r14 tire on late model e30, can it be done? What offsets would I need? Thanks.

                Yes. 17x8 +25 wheels are ideal for fitting 235/40/17s but you do need to roll the rear fenders.

                  They'll fit flush. You may need 5-10mm front spacers depending on how new your brake pads are. 195/45 is the common tire choice.

                    +15 to +5 would fit that nicely.

                      What size spacers should I be looking at?

                        Wait a minute! Are you getting wheels Lambo? ;) About time bud! What wheels are they?

                        How flush are you looking to go? et20 is pretty much perfect on a daily e30 that is lowered.

                          How flush are you looking to go? et20 is pretty much perfect on a daily e30 that is lowered. You could run a square for a nicer fitment with ease.

                          If all works out I'll be heading back to Colorado with a set of 4x100 OZ Futura's ;) At the moment my friend is running 15mm spacers front and rear with them but they poke a little too much for me. I was thinking of stepping it down to 12.5mm spacers front and rear idk yet.

                              ok. i think i understand this stuff mostly.... i found some Rota slips 15x7.5 w a backspacing (measured by owner w tire still on) of 5.5inches. that converts to et32 correct? this will not work w/o spacers correct? or will it just clear??? whats the largest offset thatd clear on a 15x7.5? i want an offset of 25 or 20 but i clist is letting me down. I dont wanna run spacers. I'd rather get a wheel that fits.

                              its my DD on hr sports and billies. will probably run a 205. thanks in advance

                                Yeah dropping down to 10mm sounds like a good idea.
