My E30 has got H+R springs and Bilstein Sport shocks (SpecE30 suspension). What 16 inch wheel size could I fit at what offset? What (light and cheap) wheels will fit the bill without spacers? Where do I get em? And what size tires (wider is better) will fit?
Wow, that's a lot of questions. Any suggestions guys?
Fastest 16" street setup without any fender mods and spacers:
16x8 Rota Slipstreams, custom ordered in ET20 57.1mm CB. 18racing.com is the sole supplier of these. No spacers, no rings, not very heavy (17.x lbs), wide.
215/45/16 Falken RT-615. Absolute fastest street tire currently out. Yokohama Neova is very very close, but the RT-615 is still champion. Worst case scenario a very light roll on the rear quarters.
