look okay. What's wrong with your Azev's? Besides two of them look different from the other two... (missing caps?)

I like. They look like OZ Futuras. Are they actual 3 piece wheels?

Personally I'm not a huge fan of the excessive poke/stretch look... but the overall style of the rims is alright.

My 2 AZEVs are toast..........and I have been waiting since f***ing february for an answer from AZEV and getting the runaround......since I heard rumours that AZEV went out of business.....time for different wheels.

No they're not 3 or 2 piece wheels,

I have no idea why it would affect the bearings.

I'm not going crazy with a 10" or staggered.

I'm just wondering if the 17" 8.5 will fit on my car, I'm still trying to figure out offsets, backspacing etc......anyone slap on 8.5 on their car with no problems?

First set is Keskins, which are a knockoff of the wheels below them, which I believe are OZ's.

If you wanted to get aggressive you could fit 17x10 out back and the 8.5 up front.

If you want to rock the 8.5's all around they will fit no problem. I think there usually around et 15 or 13? Not sure, but with the right tire they will fit no problem with that offset.

I'm running a 9" wide with an et of 8 up front with no problems, in fact I could space it if I wanted. My fenders are rolled.

cool, I want as much dish as possible and I saw some other cars that looked like crap, do i need to run 9's?

the M3 is running 17X 8.5 et 13

and the jetta that looks like shit is running 17x9 48mm

what do I need to run if I want the most dish possible with it still fitting?

It depends whats available, I believe your limited to either 17x8.5 or 17x10, I don't think 9's are available, if they are it may not be e30 friendly offsets.

You have to realise the wider the wheel you get the more perfect your offsets will need to be. Also the more stretch you will need.

I'm currently running a 15x9 et 8 up front, with a 195/50. If I were to be running a bigger tire I would have less room.

On the 8.5 you can probably get away with a low profile 205, probably a 205/40R17, I'm not too sure, I don't have much experience with 17's
