    That is an interesting factoid I was not aware of.

    Begin search for 16" wheels LOL . . .
    On my E30/M3 I was running BBS/RS 16X7.5 ET20 (rear)/ET 14 (front) with 225X50ZR16 until 7 years ago and switched to BMW Type 5 17x8ET20 with 235/40ZR17 (a little rubbing on front at full lock/jounce).

    I redrilled/inserted the BBS/RS for 5x108 and running them on my 1984 242 Volvo Turbo (museum like) hot-rod.

    I think that you will be happy with BBS/RS in 16"

    I don't want to get flamed, but I bought new General (summer rated) tires for the Volvo and they are darn amazing/good for that car. I am running Yoko on the E30/M3 and also very good and cheap! Pirelli also brought back the CN36 Cinturaro 185/70R15 that I bought for my 72 911S, they look amazing but costed 2.5X of the M3 tires :(

    Too bad I don't know how to post pictures...

    And nobody has these in stock… just got a notice from Tire Rack stating they have no idea if and when they’ll be replenished. Anyone in the US with some ideas? The options for a 225/45/16 are not the greatest…

    The E28 M5 styling 5 of same outer dimensions but with 20mm inset fits without issues too.
    I always thought they were the same exact 16" wheel from the E30 to E28. Didn't realize they made the same style 16" with two different insets. Thanks for the info!

    Yes, provided the correct size wheel is used. 225/45R16 is the stock size for the Evolution models and the +1 size for standard M3s.

    Reviving an older thread but wanted to check before (back)ordering a set… I have a stock 1989 m3 over here, wanting to upgrade to the 16” basketweave wheels. Would these work without rubbing?

    Sort of off-topic, but I was looking for tires for my GTR and came across this very interesting set on Tire Rack.

    At 1,282.80 for 4 tyres, I'll pass if that is OK.

    But only the Pirelli p700z was developed using an M3 E30 in cooperation with BMW's tyre development engineers!

    Tire Rack has three in stock as present. $283 ea.

    They also have four other options including Advan A052 (great tire BTW), Dunlop ZIII, Toyo R1R and R888R. All less expensive than the Pirelli.

    Pirelli has finished the development and are offering the P700Z in 225/45R16 now, as I learned from a post on the e30m3 SIG.
