I found some wheels on eBay I am interested in but I am concerned about fit and so on. If you are familiar with these wheels and could shine some light on them for me I would appreciate it!

i agree those are nice, they say they'll fit and it comes with allt he spacers studs, and nuts, just make sure they're good quality spacers otherwise you will have some vibrations. but they look sweet.

No those are replicas, so quality is a big issue. Its up to you man, but just make sure you know what you are getting into before you invest money into them. They will look sweet on your car tho!!

I agree, being replica wheels, quality can be an issue. The info that the seller provided seems sound though, they should fit no problem, if I were you, id ask if there was any kind of warranty on them for any factory non driver problems that should arise, that way your bases are covered, most reputible sellers will have no problem with doing this.

they are just some non-name brand wheels that were made for a honda but will fit an e30 with spacers, they should work fine but you will prolly lose some ride quality due to the spacers

By lookiing at the pics those spacers look a little much, like the wheels may stick out past the fenders (tooooo much) Like a Honda or something.... I recently got some Mille Miglia 16's for my 1990, they are just right with 100mm spacers and by the picture on ebay those spacers are MUCH larger than 100mm.. so WATCH OUT!! unless of course you want your wheels to hang outside of the fender... check out thiis link..

Those are a replica of SSR GT3. The real ones are very expensive good wheels. I have seen them on one BMW but some on Porsches and such. They are usually over $450 a wheel for the real ones. Do a search for "Deloriant" he is on these forums and has those wheels. As far as replicas being worse quality, they can be.

The reason is that alot of replica wheels are cast and not forged. From everything I have heard though unless you are using them very hard or running over huge potholes and such you will be fine. They are not going ot fall apart on you or anything. The best thing to do is look and see where the replicas are made and by who.

Thank you for your input! I do not expect to sell my car for my dream dollars and so if I do not, it is getting wheels/springs and may some Dinan hp.
