Wheel offsets on your e30
Hey I'm looking for a nice set of wheels for my 325is, I found a deal on some +42, is this to much and could someone post some pics of different offsets?
Here is a pic of the wheels

Only these will be four lug.

42mm offset will not fit E30 bmw.. the most you can go is 30-35mm without a spacer. if you like the 5 spoke style I would suggest Rial or borbet.

Just ask for low offset 20-35 mm when your shopping..

the e30 off set is et30, so you will need quite lager spacers, imo its not worth it for those rims, try and find something closer to stock size.

Any one have any pics of Team Dynamics wheels on an e30

Thoughts on these?

Are those Team Dynamics? Jeremy what offset are those you have on your car, those look sweet! What do you guys think would look good on white 325is?

like Spaz said, spacers with longer bolts are in order to bring the +42ET wheel out enough to clear the calipers from the spokes. If done right with a hubcentric spaces, no real problems here (I don't recommend tracking your car with this setup though).

This is pic is my friend Filippo's '90 318ic with Team Dynamic Monza wheels (18"x 8") ET+23. They came with a +18mm offset, but he had them custom machined down 5mm for a (E30) proper +23mm. I believe Team Dynamics offers all their wheels in a +18mm offset (which will fit an E30 fine unless it's lowered extreme like Filippos).
