i love my ASA, i think they're the best bang for buck rims. It delivers all the essentials popular rims have into one package. a lip, multiple aggressive spokes, and BBS light weight technology, all for an affordable price. My 17 inch rims weigh as much as my OEM 16 inch ones.

Much better, we call it RUB here and you should be fine, I have no problems and many people have the wider x9 on the rear. Just go 40, you'll be fine, not confident about 50.

I had AR2's(Almost same) on my old E36 and for the price and quality of the wheel I was impressed. The only thing I did not like about them was that they were pretty heavy.

I ran 17x9 squared with 245/40R17's.






Last ones just for fun
