4 E21 turbine-style wheels, decent condition but need some cleaning and new tires. 5.5 x 13, ET18. Some curb rash on at least one of the wheels. Take a look, ready to pick up. Thanks!

Nice - Always felt these wheels look great on an '02.  Wish I was local - and was already long extra sets.

Thanks! These came with the car when I bought it. I already have a set of 14” basketweaves from my E30 that I’m running on the 02 now. These are good wheels too though, I’d just like them to go to a good home!

Quick question - tires on the E30 weaves? 195/60 14? 

 

I've got 195/65 14 on my E30 and have long wanted to try them on the 02 but the diameter is 3/4 larger with the 65 aspect and most threads here say run 60s. Just wondering

 

Still like those turbines - GLWTS

Thanks - running 195/65 14 on the 02. I literally pulled them down from the rafters and threw them on the 02, because the 13s it came with had dead tires. They aren’t perfect and overstate speed by about 10% or so (I think, but I don’t drive slow, either). I have a bend in the front air dam on the driver’s side, and when I turn right full lock they rub on the bottom part where it’s bent. I’m also running 5mm spacers on the front, which I probably don’t need but thought they would help with the rubbing in the front (it didn’t, I should just take them off).

 

I will probably replace the tires with 60s or lower. My main goal with this car is handling in the canyons, and I got some awesome results lowering the 318is with H&R OE Sports, 15” Euroweaves on 205/50 Direzzas and a 325iX 14.5mm rear sway.

 

None of that has much to do with the E21 wheels, other than I should reconsider keeping them and getting some new tires. :)

I like your comment about the spacers :)

 

Totally makes sense. Running Euroweaves on the E30 as well but I have virtually new Sprint classics on my 14 inch weaves which I like too but for different reasons and applications. Finding it hard to justify another set of tires and mounting. 

 

With wheels and tires I'm as bad as some people with shoes (Nine sets of wheels, eight sets of tires, for four cars). I switch back and forth just to aggravate my back. 

 

You could refinish those turbines and put 205/50 13s Sprint Classics on them? They say 5.5s are the minimum width for those tires and can be squishy vs 6 inch wheels. Or the Pirelli Cinturato 185/70 13? But you probably know all this already. And neither will be better for canyons than the 14s. :(

 

Good problems to have! Good luck
