Thanks!
Yes, with stock 205/55 tires. Looks much better than the iX weaves on the iX.

ET15?
+18 would be perfect. +15 is great if you find an off the shelf wheel though.

Thanks man! This is with a 245 though, should we still go with 18 or cut it down to 15? We have the option of specifying the offset so might as well get it right on.

Basically, do you think we can fit a 8.5" rim with a 245 RS3 (around 9" wide), or should we stick to an 8? And what's the best offset to go with if we can specify any? The main concern is no use of spacers but also the ability to clear the fenders without cutting - we can roll and pull to our heart's content. *might* be able to cut a bit but prefer to avoid it. FWIW it's a high arch sedan.

Assuming stock style struts with 245/40s: 17x8.5 +18 or 17x8 +25. Fitment is obviously a lot easier with the 8", but that's your choice to make!

Only mistake I've found in a minute of looking up and down is that the E39 M5 is 74.0, like the non-M E39.

Also funny they don't even try to figure out the wacky offset ranges on my Z3M

No, and lots. Depends on literally everything.

I just put H&R sport springs/bilstein suspension on my 89' 325i. im planning on getting some new wheels.
Will ESM-007's 16x8 offset 20 in front, and 16x9 offset 15 rear fit? what would be a good tire size? looking at 225/40/16 kumho's, will i need spacers/ rolled fenders?

205/45 front 225/40 rear would look nice. You will need a minor rear fender roll. No spacers are necessary.

Possible to do 235/40r17 with 5-lug swap? Any rolling or spacing? Assuming E39 style 42s with hub rings.
