Lowering questions

Will an e34 with stock wheels and tires rub, on BC coilovers when their lowered? Also if so should I get spacers?

Coilovers are very adjustable, so yes and no. Spacers? I'd rather get new wheels with offset.

Well I didn't want the coilovers to rub on my stock wheels. I won't be getting new wheels for another month or two.

That's very true, but can't you just adjust camber to get you through a month if it's too tight?

I just looked on the BC Racing website, and these particular coilovers do have camber adjustment. What a lucky guy. I hadn't heard of this brand before, and I'm thinking I might get myself a set when I can.
