Thanks again
No, you need 25mm to clear the front struts. I think you just re-asked the first question you came with.

Car currently has uuc bbk and D-Force 15x7 et +25 rims and 205/50r15 tires.

I'm new to this fitment stuff so sorry if I'm missing any infos.
+15 with a 205/50 is nice.

I did say rear and it a new question "honest"

You said i could get away with a 235 if i went 20mm on the adapter for the rear with a rolled arch for a wheel et46. I was wondering if i get the 215 on the rear without the rolled arch.

Thanks

Gotcha. Yes 20mm rear adapter and 215/40 works, but again you need to run 25mm front for clearance and the car would have an ugly stance if you did this. I'd go 25mm all around and roll the minimum amount necessary.

this question has probably been asked before but after aimlessly searching the thread and reading irrelevant info i decided to just ask! I'm wondering what offset i would need if i wanted to run 15x10 front and back, or if this is even possible, I'm okay with rolling the fenders but i don't want to have to stretch them or put fender flares. the goal is to have a decent lip and deep dish, if this size isn't ideal what would be?
Thanks!

Fitment

Whats up mystikal,

This is for my e30 ('91 318i). Im selling my 17x9s and going to 17x10 +20 square. I also ordered some new coils and looking to go fender to rim.

What will need to be done for this setup to work? Thanks

Too wide. 9" is your practical limit for 15s.

Like the last guy, too wide IMO. Even with extreme front camber I think it will poke too much. You also need 8-10mm front spacers to clear the struts.

Thanks man. The 17x9s tucked just about how i like it. Fender to rim in the back and front definitely needs rolled to fit rim. My other option is 17x8.5 +30 front and 17x10 +20 rear. I already have 10mm spacers for the front so i think ill be good there. Would the 17x10 really poke much more than the 17x9? I will be lowering as far as possible on coilovers so turning may be an issue with 10j on the front. Not entirely sure though. Thanks again

Anyone know a good place to buy Ronal LS on this side of the pond? Also what tire size fits without rubbing or screwing with the speedometer?
