Do you know what google is? Or a search bar? I don't want to come off like a dick but there are tons of pics online with e30s running crazy fitment.
There is even a STICKY thread in the e30 section regarding wheel/rim fitment.
Your questions need to be a little more specific. You need to include your car year and model, even your suspension specs would help. You need to include the rim specs you would like to install. Rim size, width, offset
You have an 87 325is. I believe the late model e30s allow for much wider rims in the rear (someone correct me if im wrong) because of the higher arches in the rear.
As for 10in wide rims, its been doneand if you have the cash you can make a lot of different things fit.
I will be running a 16x9 et15 on my 87 325is. I might need a 3mil spacer to clear the front struts. I will know once the rims are installed. The tires I will be using are 205/45/16 or 205/40/16. Not sure yet.
On my current setup, which rubbed, I have et25 16x 7.5 or 8. Can't remember. I have pretty beefy tires on it though. 225/50/16. The rears would rub during hard driving or when the rear seats were loaded. I had them rolled by stance factory. No more rubbing issuses. The fronts rub like its their day job. Even with the front fenders rolled too. Oh yea, and I am not that low. It's a mild drop. Maybe a one inch drop.
Check out this website. Not sure how acurate it is but it helped me out with some of my question.
And this website can give you an idea of what your tire rim combo can look like.
Hope this helps.
