Sure. With like 50mm of spacing. Per side.

ok newbie here.I was reading some of the postings on this thread and I came to the conclusion that i really like the style of the ronal ls wheels.I found a company in oc california but they no longer carried these wheels. Any other places where I can get them or arfe there any other brand that might have the same look(not the expensive bbs). Also my car is an e30 '86es, and I wanted to see if "16 will fit? I do not want to do any modifications since I am very skillfull with cars. Please help!!!

So what if I go 15x7 in the front and 15x8 in the back with 225/50R15 tires, should the front and rear offsets be different? I obviously want more dish in the rear but don't want any rubbing issues

Hey man go to 1010 tire and under tools check out the offset calculator. It's pretty good.

+20 front +25 rear

There's a good chance you'll still need to roll the rear fenders, as that rear setup runs WIDE.

Hi! I have an e30 with tires 205/60 r15 which look a little too big. What dimension would you recommend for it,for normal city ride. Thanks!

'Raddo steelies



I know I need a lip, and this is pre-lowering I believe...

HOWEVER, Coopers come with 16" steelies... 4X100... But the center bore is too small...

Yup, and due to the track difference on the iX they would sit out a good bit further than that.
