can i fit 20 inch rims on my stock e30 with the proper wheel spacing and other precautions? new to bimmerfourms
Hey guys! Been lurking around for a while and I'm taking the plunge for a first question on here! So I have a 2010 E90 (328i x drive sedan) with the style 162 18" staggered setup. A local guy has some 18mm spacers for sale at a fairly decent price! I'm considering them but have no idea if there would be any fitment issue or rubbing... What do you guys think? Any help greatly appreciated!!
Measure and see if you have 18mm worth of space between the edge of the tire and the edge of the bodywork.
Ok, so say I don't have 18mm worth of space, is there "a risk" it would rub, or it's sure it would rub and cause issues?
Thanks for your help btw!!
It would rub and burn the paint off your fenders if you don't have the room. Do this
Wow! Didn't know it could be that much of an issue if thicker spacers are chosen! Thanks for pointing out that video, it really helped me figuring out what I need!!
im planning to buy a set of CMS 17x7.5 wheels with the offset et35 squire set up- for my e46 320d. will these fit the car without any mods?.
So if i went to autozone and got some spacers for my 95 325i whats the least and thickess i could get on stock rims/wheels. About to get rims painted black to cause car white. car is stock high as in its not lowered. Want get all 4 tires pushed out some, As for rear tires idk havent looked at stock width of tire ie.. 185,205...i wanna go little wider. Textbook says dont go i think what 20 over on a rim thats rated for lets say 185's wide?. Thanks guys, sorry first bmw. Iv built and owned mustangs and comaros lol but i now these bmw's u gotta finest more,
I feel maybe this thread is missing some aspects. Maybe its just me. But the absolute maximum spacer offset to use is around 75-80mm. Thats any combination of two stacked spacers. Preferably in that case a 60mm non stud and a 20mm studded. In any instance rim et after that will only be in the abailable modified wheel well. Wheel bearing life expactancy drops to half life. (About 20,000 miles). Suspension componants mostly unchanged. I also feel that this thread partains to stock setups and does not accomodate possibilities of tire size changes. Ei, buying these $200 spacers, then a year later buying new tires, and now your wheel spacers are too big. This thread is seriously lacking in areas to lead ppl on a diy $$$ friendly shot at spacers.
