How would these fit with stock suspension?

https://offerup.com/item/detail/644590735/ wondering how these would fit with stock suspension on my e30, just want something that looks better than bottlecaps without lowering.

02, do you have a link to that wheel / tire calculator? That looks good.

Thanks -

15x8 +25 225's

Hi,
I've purchased a set of Enkei 92's in 15x8 +25. Does anyone know if 225/50 tires will fit up front without rubbing? I believe I'm on H&R sport springs, so it is slightly lower than stock. I also have a 5mm spacer ready for some extra clearance for the front wheels.
Cheers

225/45-15 Toyo r1r on enkei 92s with 5mm spacer up front. On air ride now but rode this setup on ie3(h&r race equivalent) and drop hats, only time I rubbed was when I was full lock turning into a steep driveway. Otherwise no rubbing.

Artec made in Germany unknown year.

Only took me 3 years to buy the wheels and test fit them . Had to use a 3mm spacer up front to clear the stock calipers, these Works have a very flat disk.

15x7.5 et0 had 205/55s on it, partial roll, lips are at like a 45° angle. took tiny slivers from the sidewall but wore the tread out before getting sketchy. If I roll the rest of the way would 205/65s fit?

Evening, got a few questions in regards of set up.
91 e30
Wheels are 17x 8.5 et30 17x9 et35. 3pc wheels
Can change the facing to help with offset by 5mm if that helps in any way.

1) what size tires would fit?

2) can these wheels fit in the e30? Would the 4x100 to 5x120 adapters work with the 20mm?

Thank you in advance

Depends on the kind of tire you want. If you can go summer tires use the ones above, I have them and love them.

Here is a cheap version if you don't want to spend that money. Unfortunately, there are only like 3 tires in that size.

I also have 225/45/16 Dunlop Direzza IIIs on my car and also love them. Have done 7 HPDEs days, numerous Autocrosses and 3 trips from DC to the Vintage on them and still have life left in them.
