    Awesome thanks!!

      Hi,

      I just picked up a set of 16x8 et25 wheels for my daily driven '88 e30. The setup on my car includes H&R Race springs, camber plates, m3 cab's.

      The general consensus seems that 225/45's will be the way to go (I am also open to other less aggressive tire options) but I wanted to double check if the additional purchase of spacers will be needed.

      I'm also assuming some fender rolling will be needed as well.

      Thanks for any help in advance,
      Justin

          You will need 5mm front spacers to clear the struts. Otherwise good to go. 225/45s fit fine, often without a roll at that offset.

            You're asking about the fitment of the 15x8s but gave me the offset of the others...

              I went ahead and bought the 15x7 square set.

                  18x8J ET20 & 18x9J ET24
                  18mm adapter in the front & 20mm adapter in the rear (or 20mm fr an r)
                  Pretty low suspension wise
                  Early model vert. Salvage title. Fenders and paint don't matter.
                  How could someone make this a thing? RollnPull fnders a loooot? Fender flares? Tire sizes?

                    Lots of rolling, might need a slight pull. Front camber plates would help tuck them in a bit. 215/35 all around is best, you could do 225/35 rears but more pulling would be necessary. There is no 40 series tire that fits don't try even if you have a stack of 16 of them.

                    Enjoy your Style 5s / M Parallels / Style 32s. ;)

                        Completely stock ride height, what is the widest 16" tire and offset (or range) that can be run without spacers, zero fender roll and absolutely no rubbing anywhere?

                          Hello Jay,

                          Do you know if these http://newhaven.craigslist.org/pts/5058565517.html would fit an 87 with lowering springs.

                          Thank you.

                              Hey, those would require spacers to fit an E30. 15mm/20mm would be nice.
