I recently installed 16 inch Borbet five-stars on my 92 325I. The rear tires rub around hard cornering or over bumps. Will wheel spacers on the rear fix my rubbing problem?

16"? Doesn't sound they should be rubbing period... used

Have you done any other mod work that might affect your tires?

No. All my suspension is stock. doesnt the width of the tire matter more than the diameter of the wheel?

What is the wheels offset? You can run 8.5 wide if you have the right offset. Anything lower than 35 wil rub inside.

From what I know you can use a ruler and measure the inside where the part of the wheel touchs the brake rotor to the lip. Someone correct me if Im wrong.
