yes its true doing the 5 lug swap :)

so... i plan on going with a 16" rim from an e36 or z3. according to the tire calculator i'll need a 205/50 to match the old 195/65. from what i researched most of the rims are 7" or 7.5" wide with an et of 41 or 38. will i have any rubbing? keep in mind that i'm looking to go with coilovers at some point to have the fender gaps match also i have the ix sides so i can't roll the fenders.

any thoughts? thanks
