88 M3 with 17 x 8 BBS RGR 235/40/17



Same car with DSII (I think?)




89 S52 325is with 17 x 8 BBS RGR 215/40/17 Falken Azenis



Same car with Ronal LS 15".....Which I think look better than the 17" BBS RGRs, but I needed 17s to clear my brakes.

They are nice, although 215s are on the narrow side for 8" rims. I'll be going wider next time. Probably 235/40. I think 17x7.5 is probably better for an E30.

^^thanks,
2 of them got destroyed so I was going to buy 4 new ones......Azev was holding production when it was time to buy so I went with the current ones to save the season. I think I'm gonna go back to them eventually. They were 7 1/2, offset 32? with 10mm spacers. 245/15 tires
