wheel offset for Schnitzer flares

I have the Schnitzer box flares on my race car and am wondering if anybody knows the best offset for a Panasport wheel (15x7) to fit without spacers.

..The car that I'm working on previously had fender flares and 7" x 15" 3-pc. wheels. The wheels have an offset of approx. 13mm. The backspacing (from the mounting surface of the wheel to the inner-most edge of the rim) measures approx. 4-3/8". These wheels completely filled the fender, barely allowing enough space for the car's coil over suspension components.

If you race that car, chances are that you are using 225.45.15 tires. Those would require an offset of around 12 to 15mm to clear the struts if you have coil-overs.

Then how wide are you fender flares? My guess is that with wheels with ET0 it should fit.

But when comes the time to sell those wheels, you are gonna have lotsa problems as they will not fit any car. Why don't you buy wheels with an offset of 25mm and buy 25mm H&R wheel spacers and long studs?

How much more clearance do you have over stock? What size are your tires? Any suspension mods? All these questions must be answered first.

I am just setting my car up with the same wheels, tires and flares. I got the Panasports with an offset of zero and am using 10mm spacers in the front and 20 mm in the rear. With this aoofset and spacers the tires just rub the flares in the rear and clear the fronts by just a hair. Note that spacers were chosen to ensure track requirements were not exceeded, not neccesarily to clear the flares. Be prepared to cut out the inner front fenders near the valance ahead of the wheels and where the floor meets the firewall.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
