Bbs rz

Hello, Can anyone tell me if BBS RZ 15X6.5 ET33 wheels can fit a 91 325i? And if possible what would be the best tire size? I was thinking 225/50 r15, but maybe that would be too wide. Thanks for any suggestions.

Yes, Corrado weaves fit. 205/50 or 205/55 are your options as the wheels sit so close to the struts and they're only 6.5" wide. I'd go with 15mm spacers front 20mm rear for better fitment, if you're interested.

My car is lowered by approximately an inch all round.

Rota Grid Classics front: 15x7 offset +20 (195/40r15) rear: 15x8 offset +0 (205/40r15)

It'll fit, but the tires are hilariously undersized. The fronts will be sunken in compared to the super-poking rears. Overall, I would pass.

i got a set of 15x8 BBS RM's, stock et33...i think with the 2" lip it's about et14

How much trouble am I going to have fitting these on my e30?
I'm assuming, i'll need to do some fender rolling as well?

P.S. the car is getting a drop, just not sure which direction i want to go in suspension.

also, looking to get a bit of tire stretch going

205/50/15 is perfect. May not even need fender rolling depending on what suspension is used.

Hello everyone, thanks for this topic, its great!

My question is:
I have Fondmetal 4000 15'' wheels with ET24, thinking of running either 225/50 or 215/45 Toyo T1R tires

Which tire size would you recommend? Is the T1R a good match for the E30?
I would like to avoid spacers or rolling. I am also looking into coilovers but currently on stock suspension...

Thanks
Paulo

225/50 will fit without modification. T1Rs are good, nothing earth shattering. Unfortunately nothing from the latter category comes in that size.

Are you looking for maximum rubber, or flush fitment? What year is the E30? What suspension setup? Lots of variables here.

Cool. I'd suggest getting a set of basic coilovers (BC Racing, or even JOM for the $300 or whatever crazy it is they sell them for) instead of the H&R Race. Adjustability means the world when you're going for perfect fitment.

+15 offset all around
195/45 F
215/40 R
