    15X8 direct fit currently available?

    The Rota slipstreams of that description appear to not be available anymore. Are there any other 15X8 for E30 at roughly +20 offset? hubcentric rings would be OK, but I'm not interested in spacers.

      They don't have any more 4x100 wheels in 15x8. Only 15x7.5 or 16x8.

          +40 is the offset; suitable for FWD cars like Civics. For an E30, those wheels would go too far inboard and hit the struts, springs, or who knows what. To use that wheel, you would need fat spacers, which I don't want.

              501s are 16x8, no?

              I honestly can't think of any now that Rota backed down the width. That new wheel coming out discussed in the track section of the forum will probably be the only game.

              That said, 15x7.5 is plenty for a good 225.

                There are 2 coming, the one discussed on the forum and the new D-Force one that bimmerworld has.

                    I was looking at these today.

                    They come in 15x7 and 15x8 direct fit for E30's.

                      The D-Force is only in a 15x7 "Coming Soon", haven't seen anything for a 15x8.

                        Those are the ones that Elephant motorsports is bringing to market. AFAIK they're not available yet.

                        I could have sworn D-Force was making some in 15x8 for the AutoX crowd, not just 15x7 for the SpecE30 guys.

                          I suspect that running the ultra-fat Hankook 225-50-15 on a 15X8 at +15 would require outrageous fender rolling. I'd much rather find a +20 or resort to higher offset whees with a spacer. I really like the Rota RB's (Panasport knock-off) so that wouldn't be that bad of an option.

                            949racing.com. They make wheels for miatas and such. They make 15x8 witth 35 offset. You would only have to run a 15mm spacer to achieve what you want. You would need hub rings but those wheels are tits. And the best part. . . . they weight 13lbs. They make a few different styles in 15x8. They are kinda on the higher side price wise. But you pay for lightweight and quality. Personally I would love to have a set for some track wheels.

                              I run 225 hoosiers on my 15x8 rotas and I have to use a 4mm spacer to clear the strut.

                              et15 would work just fine as long as you have 2-3 degrees of negative camber
