rim size
 
Ok so am planning on buying some xxr 521 for my first wheels and i wana get 18s with 1.5 inch lip on front wheels and 3.5 on back wheels with all 4 +25. My car will also be lowered h&r sports by the way. i also dont want the wheels to stick out to much i want them even with the fender but i do want a nice lip on the back ones. Do the rim specs sound like they will give me that look or am i way off. my car is red and the rims will probably be black with a chrome lip or all matte black, still deciding. please give me some opinions!

8.5 all 4. ??

so how are you going to have a +25 offset with a rear 8.5 inch wheel with a 3.5 inch lip? Math doesn't make sense...

well thats why i posted because i want to know the right specs to order because i was kinda confused on sizes and what look i wanted

+25 on a non-m? So you think you can stance? And why are putting cheap wheels on a BMW? How is your cooling system, FCABs, RTABs, etc?

According to this Style 101 has an 8x18 and an 8.5x18, and the ETs are 47 and 50, respectively. If you get this spec, you should have a direct bolt up.

Good luck.

umm no i dont wana stance and i actually hate when the wheel pokes out.i just want a nice drop with rims that are even with the fender and a nice size lip on the back with no gap between the tire and rim. if +25 is to much then i wont get it. thats why i posted for help!

Get something like 18x8.5 et38 or something. Et25 is too aggressive for a non m, without modification to fenders

Black wheels on a red car.....oh's no.

Snik 01-06-2013 06:38 PM

OP. that's hella aggressive.
If u wait a tad I can sell u DPE non M wheels with similar lip sizes.
I'm running them on my M with huge spacers.
PM me if you're interested. Lol

Sounds a bit too aggressive on a car without fender work.
