18x8 in front

18x9 in rear

bolt pattern and offset are good.

BMW e34 1989 m20

Anyoen have a clue on what tire sizes I would need for these?

Anyony know If they will fit on a lowered e34? Have about a 1 inch drop in the rear. Will I need to roll my fenders? Should I go with 18x8 in the rear also?

Thanks in advance,

Eric

mine rub a little when cornering and braking hard. other than that its ok, dont know if I would lower it, it may rub more. thats my car in my sig, the factory mudflaps in the front are what rubs.

I dont have mudflaps and my car is alreayd lowered.

Hitz, do you think I will need to roll with 9 inch rears? I kinda want the staggered look (just the look). Do you think it will rub with peopel int he back? I dont usually carry many peopel but wen i do go out sometimes im DD :-/
