Hello BMW guys;)
I really love this website. Especially for beautiful pictures and videos. I live in Prague, Czech Republic.

My car is a 318i E30 four door saloon with 4cyl. M40 engine. The car is from 1988, after facelift, with plastic bumpers and larger taillamps. I would ask you for something. My car is running on 15" wheels now I should like to buy a 17x7,5 wheels with offset about 35mm. Yeah, they will not fit on the E30. I will use spacers from Eibach with longer bolts.
And the question is, how thicker spacers I will need?

Thanks for help*th-up*

*wave*

ps. The tires will be a 215/40R17 with ZR speed rating

2Kid: I am not sure, cause my friends 7,25x15" wheels (Dezent C) needs thin spacer - with standard 205/55 tires they scratch McPherson strut. Original BMW cross spoke wheels (7x15) have offset 25 or 24 I think.

8-10mm spacers will be perfect.

17x7.5 ET 35 will jam up against the front strut housing.

You will need at least 5mm of spacer, if not 10mm if you plan on running anything bigger then 215/40 for tires.

How does it look? Isn`t it too narrow?;)
