I could use some help with tire size and offset. Car is stock, but maybe down the road will get some coilovers. Any advice is appreciated.
Well, what are they available in? What look do you want?

Size will be 16x8. Looking for a nice clean look.
Don't want to roll the fenders if I don't have to.

+22 with 205/50/16s is a great setup for what you're looking for.

Will the tires stick out all all?
Off of 22 all the way around?

Hi Mystikal
I have a 325i cabrio sitting on vogland springs.
Will 17x7.5 15mm offset 205/40/17 tires work?
Thanks

5 Lug Swap Fitment

I'm planning to do a 5 lug swap on my 1988 Cabrio using E36 M3 front knuckles, calipers, and struts. For the rear I'll probably use E36 Z3 hubs and calipers.

I also have access to a set of 16X7 ET46 style 42 wheels.

Any thoughts on whether this will work and if fender rolling is required ?

Also, what are the recommended tire sizes ?

Thanks

Wheels don't clear E36 M3 brakes.

Is it the offset or the diameter that won't clear the M3 brakes ?

Spoke clearance, which in this case is mostly affected by the diameter. Very few 16" wheels clear E36 M3 brakes.
