I can get these rims very cheap they are 18x7.5 +42mm offset. How do you guys think they would look on a 91 E30? Where and what sizes of adapters should I get? Any help is greatly appreciated thanks guys!!

not sure of the spacer , but I think they look good. And I guess it depends on how cheap?:confused:

well :confused: +42mm rims, e30 likes 22-25mm offset so 42mm - 25mm = 17mm spacers

Is your car lowered...If so then use 10mm spacers in the front and 15mm spacers in the rear. Just make shure you get high quality hardend bolts tho! Don`t want the wheels to fall off while driving like me!

I read about your experiences with rims falling off! That must suck. No my car is not lowered yet but I ordered a set of H&R cup suspension kit. It is a set of non adjustable coilovers lowers it 2.1 in front 1.7 in rear, Is it going to look goofy lowered that much infront and so much less in the rear? I am getting the suspension with shock coilovers and coils for $631 USD and the rims are $330 with free shipping! I think I am doing pretty well ofcourse I still have to buy tires, lugnuts, spacers, and my new control arms. I am going to order a set of yokohama paradas i think? Anyone have any opinions on my choice of suspension or tires? Also where and how much can I find the spacers for? M50 why did you go from a 17mm spacer to a 15mm spacer? I think it looked really tight in the pics with the 17mm spacer! ANYWAZ' THANX GUYS FOR ALL YOUR CONTINUED HELP AND ALL THE HELP YOU HAVE PROVIDED SO FAR! YA'LL ARE THE BOMB!! lol

Sorry M50 I just re-read your other thread and realized that you went from 20mm spacers to 15mm spacer! Oh wow why such a big difference!?

With the 20mm spacer I was getting rubbing on the innerfender when there was weight in the back. 5mm isn't that much of a difference since my wheels are 7.5" wide.

by the way these wheels are brand new from a buddy of mine at Discount tire that is how I got such a great deal! $330 free shipping is awesome for good looking 18's although I know M50 doesnt like em! LOL they are normally like 225 a piece!

It is a possibility I am not for sure I will have to ask my friend! By the way could anyone possibly photoshop these wheels onto a 91 e30 dropped a little bit so I can see what it would look like? I am so anxious to get these but with shipping backed up right now it will prolly be after x-mas when they arrive! GRRRR!!So does anyone know the answer to my suspension question? Anyone have any ideas on my choice of tires I am thinking yokohama paradas!?

Bo,

To be honest with ya they are pretty cool wheels. My suspension is/was really low (Apex 60mm drop springs with Billstien Sport shocks) and I had small rubbing issues. If you get a set of coilovers (which I will be doing) your problems will be solved. Camber kit...I couldn't be bothered with...yes it saves your tires but oh well, I don't mind. The body kit is NOT my style tho you could find it at Lowen Desing (http://members.roadfly.com/rubberducky/down2.html).

So take your time and buy the parts. Once you have all the parts then install them all at once...even better...wait till the body work is done (more important than just having a set of wheels on).
