Okay, I just got a '95 325i, and the car is lowered with Eibach Sportline spings. The rear tires are tucked a little with the stock 15" wheels, so I want to know if a set of 18's will fit as long as the width and offset are okay, or if I'm limited to 17's.

I am rolling on 18x8 wheels and 225/40/18ZR tires. NO RUBBING at all. But yes, make sure the offset will fit the E36's.

They are replica wheels of the M-parallel style #37.

I need to get new wheels, and here is my plan. BBS RX wheels 18x9 w/ 255/35R18 tires in back, and 18x8 w/ 235/40R18 in front. Do you guys know if I will have any problems with that setup of wheels and tires??????

no problems if you havent done any suspension mods (stock ride height) there might be a prob w/ 235 in front. possible if you turned your steering wheel all the way, could rub. as long as you dont get too high of an off set and your tires arent near your rear fender...

how about just getting a set of rims that are made for your car... and then u don't have to worry about the offset and shit like that...
there was just a topic on tire size... if u wanna have staggard.. then 225-front, and 245 in back...

I second that, but i was bringing up the offset factor, cuz if the offset is too large the tires will rub, and w/ my 40+ offset *wheels made for e36" i would say factor that in. i guess just check the offset before u buy the wheels. plain and simple later

I have 19x8.5's on my lowered e36 with NO rubbing, just stick with a higher offset. What size wheel? Offset? Tire size? Can't give you advice otherwise.
