Hi there Mystikal I have 1990 325i seating on Bilstein shocks and H&R OE sport springs. I have 17x8.5 et25 running 5mm spacer all around.
Can I fit 215/45 or 215/40
Or 205/45 is what I should order.
I have good amount of clearance between rim and fender.

First picture is the rear, second picture is the front.

Hey there, I have an early model, currently, on H&R Race springs with e90 drop hats and no spring pads in the rear... Im looking to order 16x8 +20 ESM 002r, my buddy is giving me his 225/45r16 R888's to put on them, I am also looking at getting my front fenders rolled on Monday so my question is, will the fit? and not have ugly poke or anything of sorts...

255 / 40R 17 square

1987 e30 H&R race springs / Bilsteins / rolled fenders / liners removed / 17x8" Apex arc8 flat face wheel
In reading up it looks like 255 fits the rears with a 17" wheel, what size spacer would be required to run them up front? Or can I make 245 work square with no spacer up front?
I'm looking at the BFGoodrich Rival S 1.5 tire.
Thank you

Two questions. Both dealing with a '91 vert with bav auto springs and bilsteins.

Will RWD 14inch weaves with 20mm spacers all around be overkill?

Also what would be an appropriate tire for 16x8.5 with +15 without rolling fenders?

Looking at getting TRM C1s in 15x8 with 20mm offset

Trying to fit 245/40/15s all the way around, is this possible?

I have a 1988 325i with a Ford 347 stroker that I'm trying to keep from spinning everywhere.

I'm close to pulling the trigger on some Gotti 1001's but they're overseas and overpriced. I'd like to be reassured these will fit before I pull the trigger.

Specs:
Gotti 1001
16x8.5
5x120
et 21

Thoughts:
4x100->5x120 adapters 18f, 20r

Car:
88 e30
Rolled, not pulled
Rx7 calipers in the front

Thank you!
