I can get a set of these for $500 new 16x7

they are fwd offset, so ill need spacers. Plus tires.

Its hard to find a set of e30 wheel pretty cheap, i wanted to get M50E30's 17 ROH wheels but Biotek picked dem up before i could.

What do you guys think? Stick to the shitty bottle caps for now or this?

im not sure, but he says they are Racing Hart Copies. RS-5

he says the rims that he is selling are made by 2 of the best
manufacturers of rims in the Asia-Pacific region. JRD from Malaysia and Fortis from Indonesia.

i dont know which of the two made these.

But i think i might be too late, he only had one set, and he has someone interested

Stick with your bottlecaps. Those wheels have fake multi-piece studs, and multiple lug patterns. 2 traits to NOT look for.

I'm with Felix, money you'll never regret spending. Ever.

Motor is good, but a good set of rims and tire is money well spent IMO

..the best mod for the money is tires(even on stock rims)
trev needs some grunt in that thing...cat back exhaust would be a good start...or a chip..

Yeah they come 17" with tyres for 500 where I am. They look like Lenso Rs-5's.

here is a pic of the rims biotek got now.

The only thing stopping me from doing engine mods bcus my car is a slushbox, i'd have to change that before i do anything performance oriented.

lowering and rims is what i wanna do this summer forget the bodykit, next summer i wanna find a 5spd parts car and do the swap.

I hate the way my car looks with the bottle caps, and the diving boards, so i wanna work on the looks a little this summer

For the love of decent E30s in Toronto (I know, that's an oxymoron), don't get those wheels.

Any suggestions that doesn't include a rare + expensive set of BBS wheels?

do you care if you need to run spacers ? size prefference ?

Not really. I don't think any wheel besides a genuine BBS belongs on my car. But I digress. The style of wheel you like is totally different to mine anyway. I thought Dave's rims were ugly, and his new ones even moreso. I'm picky like that.

Spacers = bad move. Don't do it.

i'd prefer not to run spacers, but looks like i might have to

16s or 17s.

i've always liked 5 star rims for some reason, even more in white.

Its not that i dont like a nice set of BBS wheels, its jus too much $$

this was my first car, sold it a year ago. same wheels mystical has for winters, but i painted them white
