I was going to put those "modern" looking wheels on my E30 and use the bottlecaps on the 1976 2002, but my bottlecaps have 205/60-14 tires. Those are too wide aren't they?

What are the chances I could find someone with bottlecaps with good 195/60-14 tires that would just want to swap wheels/tires?

I ran 205's on bottlecaps, and needed a 1/8" spacer to keep the ball joint from hitting- but this was for track use.

Different 205's have different section widths, in different places. A Hoosier 205 wouldn't work at all, 'cause they're as wide as possible, but the Toyos did.

If you have 'em, just try and see!

I had 205/60-14 Falken Ziex 507s on mine, which has bottlecaps, and even with stock springs I got rubbing on the rear when it was more than just me in the car. Switched out for 195/60-14 Bridgestones, and it's been fine ever since (still with the stock springs; I'm putting H&Rs in this week, and I'm wondering if I'll have to go down to 185s...we'll see.)
