  • Need spacer?

    Hello everyone

    Please note that I already search in the forum (http://www.s14.net/forums/showthread...tment-Question)

    I just want some confirmation to see If I understand everything :-)

    I'm in the process to buy rims with the following dimensions:
    16x7.5J +19 |XXXX XXXX|
    16x8.5J +22 |XXXX XXXX|

    If I understand correctly, the original ET of M3 rims are 12-15 front and 20-25 rear
    So +19 and +22 is very near OEM rims and I would not need spacers?


    Second question, the rims can come with tires 225/50/16 (The correct size should be 225/45/16)

    I read on the forum that 225/45/17 do not fit but what about 225/50/16?

    It should fit no?
    1 inch = 2.54 cm
    So going from 17 to 16 I reduce the overall size by 2.54 cm
    And at the same time, increase tire from 45mm to 50mm will increase size by only 0.5cm

    Overall I'm 20 mm less than a 225/45/17

    tx for the help

      It really depends on the wheel itself.

      Original M3 wheels are not 12-15 front and 20-25 rear. The US car had 15x7 et 30 something, and the 16x7.5 evo wheels are et27 square.

      I run 17x8.5 et 11 rear and 17x8 et 17 front without the need for spacers, but bbs rc090 (aka the style 5 lots of guys run) are 17x8 et 20, but they require removal of the front anti-rattle clips on the calipers, or a 3-5 mm spacer due to the spoke design. It's all wheel design dependant.


      225/45/16 is the correct size for our cars when running 16" wheels
