    I found that the offset on the 16X9 rims are et20, and the offset on the 16x8 rim is et15.
    Perfect offsets. 205/45 front and either 215/45 or 225/40 rears. Just need a rear fender roll for the 225s, otherwise nothing.

      I understand making the rear tire size a tad bigger but is it necessary. What about 205/50's on a et10 offset all around ?

        Think I could fit 225/50/16s on a 16x9 et 15 under a late model vert with some rolling? Having trouble finding decent 225/45/16s.

        Thanks in advance!

            Too low of an offset to run a stock diameter tire. 205/45s would be perfect.

              Nailed it. Also check onlinetires.com for all oddball sizes they tend to have weird shit.

                Dude. You rock. If only they made Z2's in 205/45. At least I still have the Z1's to play with

                  16x8.5 et+14 (originally +24) all around with 10mm spacers. 205/45R16 all around.

                  Car is a late model coupe on the GroundControl coilover conversion kit so it wont be slammed.

                  Can you tell me what my clearances will be? Will i run into any wheel/tire travel issues with the arches?

                    Haha thanks. I'm in the same boat, running a discontinued (265/40/17) Z1 SS size. When they're finally dead I'll have to downsize a bit. Womp womp.

                      Just need a rear fender roll. Tight but safe. There's a small range of what I call "perfect fitment" and those land right in the middle.

                        You're the man, man. Thanks again for all the help. :)

                          Yeah I changed routes going with 16x8's all around et10 offset. 5mm spacer in the front and 3mm in the back. I'll probably go with H&R super sports springs still debating on the race springs. Whenever I get them I'll just phone book the fenders ahaha.

                            Oops so the 16x8's will be et25. The 16x9's will be et15. Aside from spacers will I run into any other issues?

                              Can I get a set of 15x7.5 with a 32 offset to fit my 89 325i lowered on h&r race springs?

                              I don't mind spacers but fender rolling is out of the question.
                              (tire size is 195/50/15)

                              Cheap safe choice: 3mm front spacers, keep everything else
                              Better safe choice: 15mm spacers and extended bolts all around

                              This pretty much answers my question, but I'd like to run at least a 205 wide tire. I'm looking to buy a set of Konig Rollers - same specs as essi1553.

                              Just a matter of more wheel spacer?

                                Any tire recommendations brand wise for 16x8/16x9, very limited selection in 205/45, 215/45, or 225/40/16 the sizes that were recommended before.
