Lucky bastard. You don't wanna know how much the RZ's cost me in the end.

Get 225/50/15 G-Force Sports or R-S2s. Both sticky as hell.

Those wheels are 16x7.5" ET20, and 205/50/16 is exactly the same as stock, so yes, it will fit just fine.

Will these fit an e30 with 140mm clearance and butchered gaurds - im not joking its just a drifter with a 13B rotary need visual impact...

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/18-Sp...QQcmdZViewItem

Offset:+35mm

I would want to order 18x7.5 for front thou.

Is this going to be feasible? My car runs a lot of negative camber and tucks large rims under rolled gaurds ok.

Get 18x8.5" all around, ET35 should work fine without spacers. Only a 3mm one on the front if the tires have huge curb protectors.

If you really want to stay staggered, the 18x7.5" will also work fine of course.

Remember you gain negative camber as you go lower. The fronts will tuck into the fender; all stock height cars look like that with aggressive wheels.

Will this fit?

There is a company called Revolution wheels and they have 15x7, 19 offset, 4x100 wheels. Will this fit my '87 325i? Thanks.

Yes, they will fit fine. 215 or narrower tires, unless you have a stiff suspension (coilovers).

The ET0 ones will stick out quite a bit.

alright...i have a friend who wants to put on these 16 inch rims but needs spacers.
fronts: 7.5 x 16
ET30
rears: 9 x 16
E115 or could it be ET15??

what spacers would he need? is that any other information needed? he's got 205/45/16 rubber on the fronts i think. i'm pretty sure he said he needed spacers for the front but not the rear.

With straight struts, he shouldn't need any spacers (although the fronts will be CLOSE). 3-5mm spacers on the front if the tires have huge curb protectors.

Won't need a thing on the rear.
