    Depends on front camber, but +5 front -5 rear is a good start.

      I'm looking to go 17x9 (with flares)
      I like these

      I'm planning to run huge big brakes aswell.
      What offset would be best to purchase.


      can you run 255/40/17 on and e30 with KAMOTORS standard flares
      Get them in +15. Should work with the flares.

        12-15mm spacers all around, 73-57.1mm hubcentric rings, and extended bolts. 205/45 or 215/40 tires.

          Edit: btw the big attraction for this size is hand-me-down r spec tires from a racer dad's workshop supports.
          Are they just R-comps, or something more like Hoosiers or Grand-Am takeoffs? The former has a slight chance of working, the latter are much too wide.

          +22 is about ideal

            Whatever.......
            15-20mm spacers and 205/45 tires.

                Perfect with the spacers. You can fit 215/40 stock, or 235/40 (both all around) with a rear fender roll.

                  Hi, so I have some 15x7 rims with somewhere between +20 to +30 offset. I'm looking for new tires and want to put 205s on instead of the 195s. What would be a good sidewall size for a 205 tires on 15s? I've been looking at 50-65 and I would like to know which ones of those sidewall sizes would work. I'm currently on Billy sports and H&R race springs with rolled fenders. Thanks.

                    1991 318is on billies and H&R sport, no fender mods on Hartge 17x7.5 +20 and 205/50/16. I'm trying to decide between 16x8 +20 square or 16x8 +20 16x9 +15 stagger.

                    I know it's not a particularly hard setup to figure out but I want a somewhat classic fitment. With the staggered setup, what size tire would you run, and would I potentially need to roll if I kept the 205/50's? TIA.

                      205/55 is the stock size, but 205/50 works fine too.

                        With the 16x9 rears you will need stretched tires (205/45 or 215/40) and a low ride height. I say stick with the 16x8s. Shouldn't need a roll with 205/50s.

                            Can the touring fit a 17x9 et20 + 17x10 et25? What's the best tires for this setup? Only suspension mod is that it sits on Eibach pro kit

                              Way too high of an offset. They'd look and work best with 25-30mm spacers.

                                Needs spacers front and ear due to interference. 10mm front 5mm rear. Would then need rolled fenders and 205/40 and 215/40 tires. Also may have to switch to coilover to add ANY weight in the rear or cargo area due to the softness of the Pro-Kit and the extremely aggressive wheel/tire setup.
