serious question
can aftermarket rims that were on civics fit the e30?
im thinking this because used rims that were once on civics (4 lug) are not as expensive WITH rubber. i know bottle caps can be used on civics, so does it work vice versa too/

civic wheels will have a high offset so use of spacers may be required.

A huge amount of the aftermarket wheels you see on E30s are mounted with spacers pushing them out, meaning they have offsets between 35 and 45. The size of the spacer depends on the exact wheel used.

But I'd just buy Rudy's wheels or something that doesn't need them. It's a (relatively) huge added cost.

Just wanted to confirm the fitment of the E30 Rota Slipstream from 18racing (15x7.5 +20) with a 225/50R15 tire (RA-1 or street tire, not Hoosier). I don't want to have to roll the fenders.

You will definitely have to roll the rear fenders.

Thanks. Guess it'll be 15x7+25's for me, then. Or settling for putting 205's on the 7.5 rims..

Wanted to get the advice of the fitment guru before buying my new tires.

Car has early arches, and is lowered about 1.25''. Rims are 15x7.5 et25.

I was hoping to run a 225/50/15 hankook ventus rs-2. Can I do this without fender rolling?
