What about these wheels?


15x7 20 mm offset
They look like nonamers. Anyone ever seen them before?

Are they a waste of money or is there a better palce to buy similar or the same wheels at a lower price?

Is the wheel size and offset the right set up for my 91 318is?
I plan on lowering my car a couple of inches.
Will I have any problems.

Pretty much I am looking for any excuse not to buy these wheels.
Give me your best shot.

Let me know what you guys think.

If you think this is a waste of money what are some similar mesh wheels?

Anyone know a mesh wheel with a huge lip that will fit my car?

Also do any of you guys knows who makes this wheel anyway.
I would like to do some research on them.

I am waiting on a reply from the seller.

Heres the link.

I know there are a lot of questions, just do your best. HaHaHa.

Thanks all and if you couldn't tell I am a e30 rookie.

Later,
Matt

they will fit, the offset and bolt pattern are perfect for an e30.. but i dont think u should get them, 15" is too small, its not that big of a difference from the stock 14s, i think for an e30 u should get at least 16s with a dish, if no dish then at least 17s

just my opinion tho

The center design is ugly. For a 15", there are too many spokes and the fake three-piece bolts will look pretty silly. Like Seb said they will fit perfectly though.

I'd never buy no-name wheels off E-bay though. I'd be scared of poor quality, in finish or structure.

C'mon guys.. open your eyes.

The offset is WRONG for an E30. Those wheels are meant for an E32, E34, E38, etc.... not an E30.

AND they're ugly/no-name. You're better off buying some good used wheels if you are on a budget.

I see 4 lugs, how would it fit an E34,

U guys are so hard to please.....I think they look ok, I'd put them on for now if i can get them cheap.

Its already hard to find wheels for an e30, of course we would all love of have a set of BBS RS's or watever, but find me a set cheap.

The way i see it, anything other than bottle caps are an improvement, plus to ppl who dont know e30s wont care as long as they look decent

Um, Miguel, dude, E30's use low offsets too. Stock 14x6.5" basketweaves are between 27-30mm.

Ya. Only way to go is 15" BBS wheels with REAL 2-pc bolts like mine.

BMDOUBLEYA has those wheels.

My bad, I never saw they were 4 lug... but seriously?!? I've never seen an E30 with a 20mm offset wheel.

et20 would be good for a 7" width wheel...
