So I would like to know if the wheels of 15x6.5 with a +20 offset and 15x7.5 with +13 offset would fit a 2002?

Given that it is generally regarded that 15x7 wheels 25p offset fits with rolled guards, I'd say 15x6.5" wheels (12.5mm narrower) with a +20 offset (5mm less offset, i.e. towards the guard) probably would fit with a bit of rolling. The caveat would be the tyre width and individual vagaries on these old cars.

15x7.5 with +13 offset = no chance without flares or extensive guard reshaping.

Steering would be certainly heavier, although I'd check on CD's credentials in understanding the Australian classic car values before worrying about resale values. :)

1- yeah, probably with smaller tires and maybe some lip- rolling

(different from eye- rolling, y'know)

and maybe some inner fender/ inner nose lip contact.

2- sure- with turbo flares and smaller tires.

n.b.- you mean 20 mm INSET, right? +20 offset makes me think that

the wheel's OUTSET into the fender, which would be unusual....

Well I'm not too fused on how heavy the steering is but serious, handling can only get better as the wheels on the car at the moment are all buckled and dented. The tyres are about 5 yrs old so they have all hardened up and I'm not wasting money on new tyres when the wheels aren't in good shape. I am finding it very hard to find wheels in Australia with the right offset thus why I am asking these questions. I will have to find some 15x7s in correct offset.

    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
