Is it lowered? are ride height spacers intact, Does it have coil overs, Green dots, flares etc etc etc.

Same questions over and over again...

If your car is a stock 2002 and it has the ride height spacers in then "Maybe" but it will be close.

15x7 are pretty wide for a 2002 I run 15x6 and the fit is tight, if your car is not lowered the fit will be easier but this is all speculation. with 15x 7 you would be looking for closer to ET 25. I have a set of 15x7 et30s and the fit with a 1/4 inch spacer. My car is heavily modifed and probaly bares very little resemblance to yours.

The normal tire choice is 195/50-15. I have those tires with 15x7 ET24 wheels, and the fit is good everywhere except at the front fender lips. I had to stretch the front fenders. If your '72 tii is like mine, you'd need 10-mm (3/8-inch) spacers with an ET13 offset.

then they would rub on the struts. The inside clearance is perfect as is; can't go in any further.

Yes, the tire model matters. It can be wider or narrower than the nominal size, and the tread shoulder can be more rounded or more square. It's a tricky business.

    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
