    As I have not received any answers on my inquiry a few weeks back, I have gone to the web for an answer (most of my searches come back here LOL). While I haven’t definitively found an answer, I have found this website useful for general wheel/tire inquiries:

    www.wheel-size.com

    I especially found this page useful for a great visual reference:

    https://www.wheel-size.com/calc/

    You can input your current tire and wheel specs (even input dimensions for fender, wheel well, strut clearance and even scrub radius) and then input a new tire and wheel spec to compare side by side.

    Certainly helped me out and hopefully helps you.

      Trying to with 16s. 16x7.5 ET25 squared set

      I wanted to go with 215/45/16s but my local shop doesnt have em. Should I instead go with 205/50, 205/45 or 225/45?

      I like the meaty look but dont want it overdone since the wheels are only 7.5 - any thoughts or ideas?

        I just saw the work equip 40s.

        Would anyone be able to help with choosing the appropriate offset in 15x8/15x9 size?
        Link to the spec sheet --> http://www.work-wheels.com.au/files/pdf/equip-40.pdf

        Also would you think I would be able to run a bbk if I went the standard or big brake barrel choice?

          Setup: Koni SA, ie3 race springs, e90 hats, gc sport camber plates.

          Desired wheel: 15x8 et20 all corners (trm c1)

          Question: What’s a good tire size that won’t rub? 215/45/15? 225? 50? Also, will I need spacers and if so, what size? Thanks!

            Is 16x8 et7 all around too aggressive? I’ll be running 215/45/16 tires with a slight roll all around.
            Original wheel is 16x8 et32 but will be running a 25mm adapter

              Beyern mesh

              I really like the Beyern mesh style wheels and I have them on my Ď89. They were on the car when I got it.

              My son wants them on his Ď87. They are 15x7 and both the cars are stock suspension.

              Are all the Beyern mesh wheels the same offset/backspace?

              Can we go up to a 16Ē? Or, are there 15x7.5 or 8?

              Iím not finding any info really, from what I can tell if you want a Beyern mesh you donít get to pick and choose between different widths?

                Looking at a set of e38 style 5s with 205/50 tires, can i use adapters or do they have to be filled and drilled?

                  With 205 you can use adapters, although they will be pretty aggressive at ET5

                            Staggered Style 18

                            I have a shot at some cheap Style 18s on CL. $200 asking.

                            17x7 front and 17x7.5 rear, all are ET41.

                            If I get them I'll probably get 4-5 lug 18mm adapters. I tried looking for pix of these wheels mounted on an E30 but I'm not finding any. Is there a reason these wheels wouldn't work on an E30 with spacers?

                            Car is a stock height 92 cabrio that has an M30 swap.

                            Thanks!

                                Iím running them right now drilled and filled no spacers and 225/45r17. Those two sizes you put are way small. If you want to run a 205 you should go 50 series.
