If you want to play it safe and run 205/55/15 (absolutely no rubbing):

BFGoodrich G-Force Sport
Fuzion ZRi
Kumho Ecsta SPT

The prices vary quite a bit, from around $100/tire for the Fuzion and Kumho to $145 for the BFG.

If you want to man up and run the meaty 225/50/15 (looks badass, a lot of grip, you may have to roll the rear quarters):

BFGoodrich G-Force Sport
Hankook R-S2
Toyo T1-R

The BFG is around $160, the Toyo is $170. The Hankook is only sold Stateside, you'd have to ship them in or mount them down there. Stickiest 15" street tire that fits the E30, though.

There are other choices, but I recommend these most.

Thanks! Although my car is filthy, I haven't washed it since it started snowing.

redrill

Im looking to redrill the wheels I have in my garage to fit my e30 the bolt pattern is 5x110. My question is actually,
Does anyone know a shop that would do such a job,? besides carcones, whose prices are redicuous. Im sure there are plenty of those im just not familiar with any.
Also anyone know an appx price for such a job?
And finally, has anyone had or have a redrilled set and how is it working out any problems/ issues. I have heard about it weakening the structure of the wheel. Im sure it does, but how severe is it?
thanx in advance

Great Forum!
I Appreciate all the information.
I have an '88 325e, "Super eta" coupe, all stock. I'll be installing the M3 offset control arm bushings (if it matters).
I'm considering 2 different wheel sizes as well as 2 tire sizes.
Wheels: 15 X 7 et25
15 X 8 et15

Tires: 205/55
225/50

Right now I'm running stock 14" bottlecaps with 205/60's. I use the car as a daily driver, city and highway.
I'm happy with the ride and handling. Willing to give up a little ride quality for better appearance and a little more grip. Hoping to avoid any rubbing problems
Looking for advice on which of these possible combinations is best, all the positives and negatives.
Thanx in advance,
Scott

There is a member on VWVortex that does excellent redrilling work. PM TheMadChigga on here, he had his OZ's done by him and will remember the guy's username, I'm blanking out.

15x7 ET25 shouldn't rub with either of those tire sizes, if anything very slightly on the rear with the 225's (light fender rolling will cure it).

15x8 ET15 is another story. With the 225's it will definitely rub badly, and you will have to do some moderate fender massaging to get them in. The 205's are more plausible, but you will still very likely have to roll the rear quarters.

Yeah. With any spacer you need longer bolts, the only one I'd recommend getting away with is 3mm.
