Come on, 15" Still look good. You just gotta slam it. My car looked awesome on 15" hubcaps. The only problem was, that they were too far in, which these aren't.

No way..... 15's look too small on an E36 IMO. Those rims look very good on the car... and the color combo is wicked as well.... but the minimum is 17's on an E36!

I agree, 15's are almost too small for e30's.:D Other than that, congrats on a rare find and they look like theyr'e in great shape.

This is how i think.....

E30's.... if its a 2dr, 15-16's is a good size. For 4dr, 16-17"

E36's MINIMUM 17's

E46's Minimum 18's

E90's Minimum like 22's.... i'm kidding, but it seems like you can fit some BIG ASS rims under those wheel wells!

I'm not saying they don't look good, I just don't think that anything smaller than a 15" rim on an e30 would look good. Trust me, I have 14" weaves for winter and those are freakin' small and look odd really...

As long as 3SERB's happy with his/her choice and why not, they're awesome rims. *th-up*

I got them from a member here on the board, he let them go for 320 and the tires where around 500.

I am pretty impressed with how the tires performe so far but some people I talked to say they suck on rain.

Well mine have been great in the rain, but then again they're pretty much brand new. But the tread pattern would suggest taht they're especially good in the rain...i dunno.

bmd:I was considering a drop but I think the car would be way too low on the floor with people inside.

Ara:As for the tires, they r holding up pretty good in the rain so far but I am sure thats gonna change as they get worn out. What kind of tread life do you think they have?

You can't expect long life out of soft compound tires and most of its life really depends on how aggressive you drive. I drive pretty aggressively but luckily only drive my car 2-3 days a week (i live above the Yonge Subway line) so i should get lots of use out of these tires. But it's pretty easy to smoke soft compound tires.

As far as the drop is concerned, get a good set of springs and shocks and you shouldn't be too worried about carrying people in the car. I can easily take 4 in my car and my tires won't rub (mind you my fender wells are rolled tho).

I agree with Soldo, a bit too small for my taste, but I still love them, very nice bro
