What wheels to put on an 02 is a very widely and hotly debated topic around here. What is your intended use? Autocross? Fun on the street? Do you want a wheel that looks vintage or modern? Do you want a common(easily and cheaply replaceable) wheel? How much do you want to spend?

Here's a good start:

FAQer cj offers a couple of good-looking styles which many have purchased here with good results. Check out his stickied thread on the For Sale section.

My friend Tony put a set of these on his car and they look great!

Here are some shots of CJ's alpina replica rims. I was looking forward to seeing some other shots of cars with these rims, but no one has posted. I put up a few cellphone camera shots that had poor resolution. Anyway, these are better and show the rims better. 195/50/15; 15"x6"

Fenders are uncut, car is lowered, rims are 800? More info in CJ's rims ad on the f/s board. Its a sticky. You can also get turbines, which look similar in a 13" for dirt cheap.

Here are E30 Botttlecaps on my `76. No modifications or spacers necessary. I have Ireland Stage 1 springs and Bilstein HD shocks all around. 1.25" drop and no rubbing. The wheels are dirt cheap and look great to me. The tires are 185/60 R14 to keep the speedometer correct.

Good Luck!

    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
