20 offset. 205/50, 215/45, 225/45 will all work without rubbing.

Rims are 16x7.5 ET18, 225/50/16 on the front and 245/45/16 on the rear be even close to fitting? Fender rolling is expected.

Not a chance. Even 225/45 will be tough in the rear.

Didn't think the rims would fit with such a low offset. I have them laying around and it would've been very convenient if I could have used them (would've required a fill'n'drill though). Oh well.

In a 16x7.5, 16x8 what offset would I be looking for? I know 225s fit at all 4 corners no problems, but I really want to run a 245 in the back (due to future power goals). Car is an early model so it does have the higher rear arches.

Exclamation

I am new to this forum but just joined to get some questions answered and this thread should definitely be the place to do it. I have stock 14" basketweaves and a set of 205/70/14 winterforces sittin in the garage. I am sittin on stock ride height and was wondering if I am going to rub at all if I mount these? I'd really appreciate the help.

Yes, you will rub with that size.

New to these forums, but found it searching for lowest offsets that can be done on my 1991 325iC.

I want to know if anyone has put on something similar to...

17x9/17x10 wheels with an offset of 23 without spacer adapters and et8 with 15mm spacer adapters. I know it is extreme, but is it possible with a good amount of stretched tire, a bit of fender roll and pulling? Maybe not? I have no idea since this is my first BMW.

Thanks,

Mike

Not possible. I'm all for extreme setups but that's too far to pull off without creating new rear arches (it's beyond what a slight pull can do). I'm assuming the 15mm adapters are required? If the wheels are actually 4x100 then by all means mount them with 10mm front spacers to clear the struts and use the rears with no spacers; if those are of a different PCD, then you're out of luck.

Yes, the wheels are currenty redrilled to 5x100 with et23 requiring adapters to fit 4x100.

Is there anywhere on the net to see actual pictures of different set-ups? I need to get an idea of what I really want. i also here the later model e30s have lower arches and the cabbys have lower offsets. Is this true?

One more question...what is a good combo offset/width/size setup that looks tough, but not too extreme?

Thanks for the speedy reply.

Mike

rimtuck.com has some stuff, also check out dedicated E30 forums like R3Vlimited and E30Tech.

Common setup is 16x9 +10 front +5 rear, 215/40s.
