    Looking for some confirmation on tire sizes / fitment:

    I have a set of 16" Style 5s from a e38 7 series that I wanted to put on my e30 with (blox?) 18mm 5 lug adapters.
    Was planning on buying 205/45 R16 tires. Car suspension is all stock, but hoping to move to a Bilstein struts with H&R shocks here shortly.

    Will this fit without any additional work and not rub?

    Thanks

      I have a set of 16” oz futuras that im going to refinish with new barrels and lips. Im going to step them up to 17”. I want to go as wide as possible while replicating the same flush look I had with my 17” style 5s with 20mm adapters. How should I go about calculating this? I found a chart online that if I read correctly states I can do 4.5” barrel and 3” lip if i kept the width at 8” and et at 0 same as style 5 but not sure if thats accurate. I get lost once I try to figure out a wider fitment.

        Looking at a set of Kensis Kt1 wheels was wondering if they'll fit my late model vert can someone please confirm if I have this dialed in correct?

        Front 17x8.5 et35 I'll need 20mm spacers mounted on 205/40/17 tires
        Rear 17x10 et30 I'll need 10mm or 15mm spacers mounted on 215/40/17 tires

        Any other tire sizes you'd recommend to reduce lots of tire stretch but still able to clear?

        By the way car is on its way to getting fitted with airbags and camber adjustment plates

          Hi guys,

          I'm interested in buying a set of BBS RX for my 1990 E30 sedan. The spec is 17x8 ET10. Would this fit my car w/o having to go the widebody route? My fenders have been completely rolled and folded..

          Thanks

              I have been very happy with the fit and wear of the 205/60/14. This size is a little more agressive then 195. I do have 2 sets of aftermarket 14 inch wheels for sale if you are interested. Good luck with the tire size.

                just pulled the trigger on a set of 195/65E14 Vredestein Sportac 5 for $87 a piece from Tirerack.

                - could not bring myself to buy chinese rubber even if the 205/60 size would look better. life is too short to risk it all to save money, and after spending a month working with mfg's in China last year i will boycott everything I can from that cr@hole septic tank excuse for a country. if people knew what happens in the factorys over there Walmart would close tomorrow.

                  Hey everyone,

                  I need some advice on rather this will work or not. I'm looking to go to 16" either style 42 or style 88. I'll need to run 5 lug adapters and these will be going on an 88 convertible with Bilstein sports and H&R springs.

                  Will either of these wheel styles work?
                  What tire size would work best?
                  What size adapters and where to get them?

                  Thanks!

                    Hi guys,
                    I'm interested in buying some 4x100 Enkei 92's in 15x8 +25 offset. My e30 is slightly lowered, without any fender modifications, does anyone know if these would fit without spacers? Or what spacers i would have to use? Also, what tyres would i be able to run?

                    Thanks

                        I'm wondering if I can fit a 225/45/16 on my 1989 325i running E30 M3 5 lug on 16x8 ET23. I've seen a lot of people saying 215/45 will fit, but nothing on 225/45

                          I have 225/45R16 ET 23 drilled and filled so 4 lug. The fronts fit no problem, the back I am having a slight rub on the fenders.

                          If you are stock suspension you should be ok, I am on H&R sports its actually lower than I thought in the rear, I think part of it is because i have and E36M3 exhaust which is a bit heavy and a heavier battery, the other part is it just seemed to settle low.

                          Lastly I am running 3mm spring pads. I am going to 10mm spring pads and a little camber, but I will probably have to roll.

                            I'm going to be running GC coil overs (440/660), but will probably be no lower than H&R Sports. I'm a little worried about the rears now since my rear will be heavier (OEM Tow Bar/Hitch, Auxiliary Fuel Tank, and E39 Muffler). I'm going to go ahead and roll/pull to hopefully add the clearance I'll need.

                              Yea that should work. From what I was reading for a while I wouldn't need a roll with these tires, but I guess with the springs its an issue.

                              I am curious to see what moving from the 3mm pads to the 10mm pads will do as well.

                                Does anyone have any pics of a 225/45r15 on a 15x7 et30 set up?



                                This is what I plan on doing. My rear quarters are already rolled and pulled a little bit from my stance boy days. Would I be able to run a lower offset?
