    Comment


      Just picked up this beauty!

      Plan is to install bags over the winter ( air lift kit)
      Been toying the idea of running an aggressive set of esm wheels

      Id like to run the type 2 replicas preferably the 17x8.5 +20 (215/40?) Front & 17x10 +15 (225/35?) Rear. The thing is I don’t want to tear into the fenders if I don’t have to, this is a legit appearance package Mtech car!! What size tires do I need to run to pull the look off. Almost forgot to mention, wheels come in 4x100. Am I better of running the square 17x8.5 +20?

        What suspension and wheels should I get

        My 88 cabrio is on stock supension and wheels and im looking to getting coils and wheels but i dont want to go too low. What wheels and tires will fit good for daily driving and a little bit of stance? (on the low because i dont have too much to spend)

          Hello guys,
          I have a stock 90 325i
          Im looking at wheels

          17x8 1/2 j
          20 offset all 4
          Tire size 235/40-17 front
          245/35-17 rear

          Would they fit? Rubbing?

          Thank you

            Need some info on what tires/rims to run. I am using the nasieg 5 lug kit which pushes the front out by 12.5mm and e30m3 stock offset in rear with 12.5mm spacer.

            I am looking for tires in 205/45r17 or 215/40r17 and have access to a 17x8 Borbet type T or 17x7.5 MContours (2 are reps).

            I have the Borbets on now and dont like how they handle and I have rub issues with the 225/45r17s on the car right now.

            1. Should I run the 17x7.5 Mcontours? Will that improve handling?
            2. Can I safely fit a 205/45 on the 17x8?
            3. Which tire can I run without rolling fenders? I'd like to be able to run the wheel liners and fog ducts/plates.
            4. Looking at these two tires, on a budget, opinions? I just need an everyday all season tire that can handle the occasional spirited driving and will wear well. I will run winter tires December - April.

            a. 205/45r17 General AS-05
            b. 215/40r17 Nitto Neogen

            5. Can I run a 84 load rating? I will be traveling cross country with all my ski gear and a lot of weight in the car. I know the stock load rating is 89.

            Thanks!

              ESR SR03 WHEEL will +30 be too agressive??

              Looking at these for my 323i Baur TC
              Sizes are 17x8.5 +30 | 17x9.5 +30 what tyres will i need?
              Will they create stretch or poke to fit??
              Happy to bolt on flares if required!


              Thanks in advance for any help

                BBS RM ET33 fitment

                So I recently acquired a clean set of BBS RM 15 x 6.5 ET33 rims.

                I was thinking about installing 205 55 15 Yok S drive tires.

                the car will be lowered on HR sport and billy sport shocks.

                Would anyone have experience with this particular set up?

                I haven't put the tires on the rims yet and was wondering will I need spacers and if so what size and will it require longer wheel bolts?

                thanks a bunch.

                  How to fit my Borbet B's 9j et15 all round on my E30

                  Hi there

                  Don't know if this thr3ad is still up and running but need some advice.

                  I have a 325i convertible 1991 with h&r cup springs and shocks 60mm drop front 40mm drop rear

                  I want to put on my 16x9 Borbet B alloys with 205/40/16s on the car with ET15.

                  Currently they are rubbing against the struts and are poking a little...

                  Any advice on how to get them on please

                  Thanks

                  Ozzy

                    This thread is no longer answered. Just pick a size of wheel +offset and search this thread. Thats the best you will get people.

                      +30 is the opposite of aggressive. The lower the number the more aggressive the wheel will be. +30 will be fine, although it depends on how wide you go. You may actually want a spacer to push them out further. The stretch as to do with tire size not offset.

                      I am running 16x8 225/45R16 with an Et23, they fit perfect, I can even push them out a bit further if I wanted.

                        I would do at least 10mm spacers on this you could go more to even 20mm. Yes you will require longer bolts.

                          Do you have a pic? Odd that they are rubbing on the struts and poking at the same time. The rim is a bit wide, but the tire is pretty thin, I would think if anything it would look pretty stretched.

                            I have been looking for wheels for my E30 323i Baur for over a year now and have decided to custom make a set of Work CR01's.
                            If you were custom making a set of 16x8 front and 16x8.5 rear setup what is the perfect offset and tyre combo.
                            I was thinking +22 front and +10 rear. Maybe also o disk to get more dish on the rear! A disk on front to clear brakes tho.

                            What are your thoughts.

                            Glad to see someone helping out us noobs again appreciate it mate

                              Im not an expert, so take my advice with a grain of salt, its coming from the research I was doing for my wheels.

                              16x8 et22 225/45R16 will fit perfect on the front, not sure about your wheels and the she shape if that will clear the E30 calipers, most do except for really flat spoke wheels. You could probably go a bit more agressive

                              As for the rears, that will work, my rears are the same as my fronts and at et23 i can fit 225/45R16 no issues.

                              Check out this part of this thread, looks like you can fit 16x8.5 et6 front and
                              16x9 et10 so you should be ok.
