hi cris.

will the15x7' RBs fit on a stock 02?

i've slightly rolled my fender lips, but i dunno if these will fit with the 25mm offset without hassle. There will probably be some rubbing?

thanks for your time.

dan

Yes, they will fit. We've use 205/50's on several cars at the shop with no rubbing issues. There are others that did have clearance issues. Their fenders were'nt rolled.

Let me know if you'd like a set. I have both colors in stock, ready to ship.

Thanks- Cris

Hey CJ,

Are the R20s something that you regularly stock? I definitely want a set, but I'm super low on storage space right now. I've seen you post 'em before, but I want to be sure...

Thanks!

The Rota RB wheels are some of the best looking wheels ever made for a 2002. I have a set of them and I love them.

Please be aware that you cannot use the nuts used on the original steel wheels.

No amount of skill or education will ever replace dumb luck

Too many cars.

Wanted to ask if you know of any problems with running 195 x 60 on the 15 x 7 RB's? And would you have a close up shot of the steel gray like the silver close up, or another side shot of the royal silver on a car?

Thanks Ed

Obviously I'm not Chris, but a 195-60-15 is much larger (overall diameter) than a 205-50-15 or a 195-55-15 that are much closer to the stock overall diameter (or at least all the tires I've seen as quoted as the stock diameter)

The OD on the 195/60 would be way too tall. Just to compare, here are the height dimensions.

Stock 165r13 23.39

195/55 23.4

195/60 25.2

    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
