Long time watcher first time buyer

41 year old from northern WI here. I have wanted a BMW for as long as I can remember and finally pulled the trigger a few weeks back. I found a 90 325i convertible at a junk yard about 2 months ago. The only thing wrong with it was the timing belt had broke. I bought the car for 700.00 had the car towed to a friends house. After finding a good head on the net I now have the car on the road... My wife was totally against the buying of the car but she decide to drive it to work today rather then her Jeep Grand.... She loves the car now.....

Anywho, I will post some pictures of the car in days to come. Oh and for the do it yourselfers out there. The car is now on the road for under 1300 dollars...

If you hang here long enough, it won't be long before you can post there.

Congrats on the purchase and welcome to the Werkz. If you're looking at wheels and don't mind buying new I'd highly recommend looking around the web to see what's out there. 4x100 is a fairly common bolt pattern so you shouldn't have trouble finding a style you like.

Thanks for the welcomes...


I've been looking around a lot for rims I just don't know what I'm buying? I don't know what "offset" means and I sure in the heck don't want to ended up in a situation where I would have to roll the fenders... I found a nice site for looking at rims but I'm just not confident in buying something like this?

I don't know what kind of style you're looking at but these will fit.

Beyern Mesh Type 4x100

I believe the offset on E30's is somewhere in the 25-27mm range. Or at least that's a safe fitment. The link I supplied you with above are BMW specific wheels with proper offsets.
