    Car: 1988 325i convertible
    Suspension: KW V3 coilovers
    Wheel: BBS RS Reps 17x8.5 et15 all corners
    Tire: 215/40/17 or possibly 225/40/17

    Can someone confirm this will work without any rubbing? Do I need spacers??

    Been doing a bunch of reading and think I've come to a decision, just need some verification/confirmation before I pull the trigger:

    Early Model E30
    Fortune Auto Coilovers
    IRE 295 BBK

    For consideration:
    15x8.5 +25 (5-10mm spacer all around (Exact size TBD))

    Will 225/45/15 fit or do I need 205/50/15?

    Rear Fenders are pulled and front fenders are rolled. I'm not all too concerned about aesthetics/stance. Just trying to get as much grip as possible for future plans (Aiming for 450+ whp).

    My concern with the 205 is that I'm essentially losing a good bit of surface contact. The 225/45 should be about the same height as the 205/50 but the shoulder will be an inch wider. I don't mind lifting the car .5-1" to clear the wider shoulder if it means an 2" of additional contact area.

    With an 18mm 4x100 to 5x120 adapters they will be at an offset of +2, you can make it work with fender work and narrow tires but it will be really tight. They wont fit as is. The will fit pretty perfect if you do a fill and drill.

    Is anyone else here running the new ground control full coil over kit and if so what wheels and tires are you running? I just installed the kit and took it to the track and it was awesome but I am still running on 16" redrilled wheels and conti street tires. Want to go to the widest tire I can am open to 15, 16 or 17's. I do like the Apex wheels but I know they will be heavier than say a slipstream. Yes I have tried searching but can't find my exact combo.

    https://www.driftshop.com/rota-slips...tin-black.html

    looking these

    https://www.apexraceparts.com/shop-b...c-8-wheel.html
    or these

    Either with a Toyo R888R in as wide as I can go. Probably 225 square right?

    The guy I bought the car from says the fenders are rolled front and back but I have no idea how much.

    Yes. If you Google tire size calculator there are a few good ones that will give you max and min tire sizes for a given wheel size.
    those will fit

    do they hook up ok? the noise I can live with as its 3in from turbo back with vibrant resonator and muffler. Im running a cheap 195 65 14 right now and if im not paying attention 2nd and 3rd gear are useless.

    I haven't run them on 14", but they've been my "street" tires on the E30 since like 2009.

    They are loud though, and stiff. Don't expect 50,000 miles either.
