    17x8 et20 Style 32's all around. Is this a proper fitment on an E30 M3?

    Thanks
    Yup, those fit an M3 fine. 215/40 or 235/40 tires.

        It will be very aggressive in the rear, with the rim slightly poking from the fenders. 225/35/17 is the size people run with that wheel. Definitely needs a rear roll, it's a pretty extreme fitment. The fronts could use 15mm spacers and 205/40 tires.

        I do this for the love of stance, but thank you!
        You rock! Thanks so much!

          15x7 et37 with 8mm spacers

          Will these clear everything? I'm on bilstein sports and h&r sports

          Thanks!

              Decided to go a less aggressive route with the wheels. Thanks for your help!

                    lots of confusion

                    I have been hearing so many different things from people, I want to get a set of 16x8 that are offered in et15 and et25 but am not sure which ones to get. I have a late model 318is and plan on getting coilovers, but I want to be sure I wont have major fitment issues. Also, plan on running a squared setup with 225/45 all the way around. I am not looking to have any poke nor do I want to stretch the tires. What are my options?

                      Hey guys,

                      I'm about to buy some new wheels for my ride, late model e30 1989.
                      The wheels are: Keskin KT4
                      17x8 et35 front, 17x9 et30 rear. (currently on 215/40r17 front 225/45r17 rear)

                      What spacers should I use? Do I need to buy some new tires or they'll be good?

                      Thanks!

                        Do you know if the Ziex 612s are good tires? Is that the best performance I'm going to get? It seems like a lot of the nicer brand tires don't have a 14in option at all :-\

                          +25, 3-5mm front spacers.

                            15mm front spacers, and you should change the rear tires to either 235/40 or 245/35.

                              The ZE-912 is great for the money, and probably the best-selling E30 tire of the past 5 years. If you want something stickier the Falken RT-615K is about the only choice left.
