Wheel and tire fitment


Recommended Posts

My wheels are marked 12.8 offset, 6Jx13. My tires are 185-70-13, I have

H& R springs. Will rolling my fender lips give me ample clearance?

I am getting more rubbing on the left rear than the other wheels.

If I can't get clearance by rolling the fender wells, should I put the stock springs back on.

you should sell these E21 (320i) rims that are improper for your

car and find ET29 ...ET33 offset rims

others will go on about how they 'will fit' - and do what you want,

but you will upset the nice steering you car might have now,

and your car will look like an amusement park ride

just one manns opinion

what about 15x6.5 et 34? would the fitment upset the car too much?

Spot on advice. I tried to fit E21 Alpina 13" rims on my car at one time, and it was a total no go...rubbing all over the place. Get rid of these, raise the ET and you can keep the springs with no issues

much better - but may need a wheel spacer to keep the inside

tire-sidewall from rubbing on the tie rod ends

What size spacer do you think? Just a small one (3-5mm) or something bigger (15-20+)?
