    I've been thinking of picking up a set of e38 style 5's. 16x8 et 23. Not sure what tire combo to run yet although I don't plan on having anything stretched. Car is going to be on Koni adjustables and h&r sports. It's an mtech2 92' 325i vert. I've been on the white stock weaves for a while now and wanting to get into a wide size wheel. Recommendations on a sport/street setup with these wheels?

        89 325is - Lowered on IE Stage 3 - Fenders not rolled

        16x7.5 ET35

        Tire size? Also, what spacers would be required and what would be ideal?

          is this a forgiving offset? seems like my options on tires are 205/50, 205/55, or 225/50?

          anyone have any input at all on potential wheel gap, or spacer recommendations?
          Can't answer you without knowing how much spacer you need to clear the caliper. And you'll have to figure that out on your own.

              3-5mm front spacers and 205/45/16s. This works without fender work. Roll your rear fenders and add spacers later to taste.

                Option 1: 15mm spacers all around and 225/45s
                Option 2: 15mm F / 20mm R and 205/45s

                  im going with adapters, either 18 all around or 18 front 20 back, most likely the latter.

                    The wheels are not for you then. The fitment is aggressive and requires stretched tires and fender rolling.

                      I was planning on fender rolling if it became necessary. You think a 225/45 tire will rub with this setup?

                              205/50 for clearance reasons.

                                Yes, 12-15mm all around would be nice.
