Hey Guys,
I'm going to order a set of Ronal LS wheels for my 91 325i because I love the factory BBS style look and proper fit available without spacers.
Anyway, they are available in offsets ranging from 9-25mm. Does anyone know the proper offset? I think it is 20mm but I want to know for sure before I order them.
Also what would be the best tire size? The ronal website shows an e30 with 205/55r15 on it. That seemed like an odd size to me. Anyone have first hand experience with this?
Here's the URL if you want to check out the wheels: http://www.ronalusa.com/wheels/ls.html

Thanks in advance...
Dave

i use Ronal LS's, and mine are et25 offset which is perfect for a 7.5" wheel. i can run 225/50/15 tires without any rubbing. deffinately request the 25mm offset, but they also have a et29 wheel which requires spacers and has less dish.

Hey MrM3, would et20 have more dish than et25?
I figured they would be hard clean e30 dude but I like the factory look of the Ronal LS with the BMW roundel on the center cap. I think I'm gonna try out those EBC Green Stuff brake pads to help keep the brake dust down.

i dont think they make them in et20, regardless of what the site says. as far as i know, there were only two offsets in 15" (25 and 29). i use EBC greenstuffs as well, and even though i work them pretty hard, they generate a good amount of dust. which is a PITA to remove on the ronals
