I know I need adapters for the 5x120 bolt pattern, but I am looking at the 42 Draft Designs adapters. They have the 18mm and the 20mm can this work on my bone stock 1991 318is? Also tire sizes?
Sure, 18mm and 195/55 or 195/50 tires.

Hey so i've got some 15x8 +20 bbs reps and i just went into my local tire shops to try and get 205/50 (as recommended by forum members) put on my wheels and they won't do it for liability reasons. They said they could put on 225/50s...would 225/50s rub the struts or the fenders with my wheel? ( 15x8 +20 ) on stock suspension btw

I just bought the tires there cause they were cheap, and my buddy who works at another shop is gonna do them for me. Supposedly discount tire was in a law suit with someone who has stretched tires from there and wrecked their car....not like 205 on 15x8 is really even a stretch lol

ugh so i got the tires on the wheels...they look good and everything but 15x8 +20 do not clear the front calipers (shit). instead of grinding them down i went over to jsport and had some 15mm (.6 inches) spacers ordered and they'll be here tomorrow...hopefully 15mm will do the trick.

Help! I'd like to fit 16x9's all around on my late model vert, the wheels I'm looking at are Klutch sl1 16x9 et18 with 4" lip. I want a little poke and a nice stretch. What size spacers would I need and what tire size (205/40)??

Oh and the car is slammed on Megan coils.

Will these work without spacers on stock shocks I believe with eibach springs?
My cars a 91 318is.

Front(16x8.0"/et18/4x100)
Rear(16x9.0"/et20/4x100)

Also am planning to get for the front 215/40, what do you recommend for the rear?

And if I were to upgrade to BC coilovers they would just fit all the same correct?

Thanks for the help.

Offset & adapter size

Want to use 18x8 wheel with 225/35 tire all four corners.
Wheel is available in 20 & 35 offset and need to go from 4 lug to 5 with adapter.
Adapter available is 18, 20, 25mm.
Can you provide the best option that will clear the strut tower and run flush with the fender or only poke out very little.
Will drop the car after the wheels to determine height then.

They work without spacers. If you want 215/40 fronts 225/40 rears would match.

Hi to all of you I am a new member and I come from Cyprus

I have a BMW E30 325i year 1989. I am trying to find some wheels for my car, what I like are the Dare DR-RD these come 16 x 8 frond and 16 x 9 rear or 16 x 8 all around! and the DARE DR-B (again 16 x 8 frond and 16 x 9 rear).

Please take into consideration that my car is lowered with Bilstein Heavy duty shocks (frond and rear) and lower springs -60mm (maybe more).

What offset (ET)shall I buy? so I don't have any problems with the wheel arches? (I don't want the rear wheels to exit the rear fenders).

From what I found they come in ET25 frond and ET 20 rear.

Please help because I am very confused.

Thanks
Andreas
