Hi I'm looking to setup an E30 for autoX.

Obviously wider tires are the way to go and 225/50/15's seem like they would make an ideal size.

But I'ver heard issues about rubbing on both struts and fenders.

So what offset does the wheel need to have proper clearance.

I will most likely also be buying the groundcontrol coil-over package, so I will have a lowered ride height.
