Nice. I had a set of 16x8.5 ET10 ones, as far as I know another member on here still has them.

When I had them they were new old stock, never mounted on a car. I hear they are a lot rougher now though...

I think you should keep the euro bumpers and drop it with some H&R Sport's.
Your car looks great!

yeah i wanna lower it but my g/f says it looks more old school classy being stock height. going to the 205 wide 16's ready makes a difference on fuel efficiency tho. i used to ride on 175s on 14's hehe

You'll have better fuel economy if you lower it.
Less drag and you won't have to slow down as much when you're turning.

but i think i would have to slam it to be effective and the ride would be so stiff and the low sidewalls... i might change the tires to 185/55/16 it might be softer and more side wall to keep the rims safe from pot holes? There are many on the way to and from work

Just get some e30 M3 springs to lower it slightly... It will look mint. but still oem correct. Sweet car man, I love it. You planning on bringing it to the e30 meets this summer?
