E30 (1982 - 1993)
God's Chariot. The E30 was produced primarily from 1982 through 1991. The cabriolet was the one exception which was produced through 1993.

Those wheels are just 513 sportmax/xxr. Looks like 16x8's, they are cheap and you can find them lots of places.

not at all. i believe 12's are too wide. 11's can fit (rears)with proper offset. you can get 9.5's in the fronts and still be within reason on the fronts.

Oh ok, thanks. So would staggering the sizes, say 7 in front and 8 in the back, effect the handling/performance? I know it'll give you a little more traction in the back but does it make a huge difference in handling.

325

just picked this up for $600
the only rust in on the door- about 4 inch pc, easy fix
got 2 motors for it, looking at gutting the interior and doing black outside and inside, building a motor to hold boost. i love these cars, looked for 6 moinths but the looking paid off.

Depends on if you are tracking the car. If so, you will notice understeer (like you wrote, more traction at the back).
