New Batch Borbet Type A's

I'm doing everything in my power to get a set of these with flat caps. After seeing AndreNY's shots on his car I immediately fell in love.

16x9 Type A's look nice (with the flat center caps) but it is a shame they do not fit the e30 very well.

You have to run spacers with them, so that the wheel isnt trying to occupy the same space as the struts/shocks, and as a result the wheel sticks out past the fender front and back. As if that doesn't look ghetto enough you then have to run 215's on a 9in wide wheel so that your tire doesn't smash your fender. and thats 215's IF you roll your fenders...

There`s a similar looking wheel named Artec typ RB. Mine are 7.5" in the front and 9" in the back. Good quality but much cheaper than Borbet. No spacers are needed. My tiresizes are 215/40/16 and 225/40/16.

Offtopic: For some reason I can`t seem to be able to post a pic here. If somebody can tell me what the hell Im doing wrong, I could post a pic of my cabrio with the wheels. Thanks.
