E30 wheel fitment

I have searched but can't get a clear answer. I'm looking at a set of 16" wheels and I'd like et20. Tired of using spacers tho so I'd like to run them without. Fender pulling/rolling isn't a problem just wondering how wide I can run before I have the same problem as my Mini Cooper wheels and rub strut and rear inner fender. Thanks in advance

you musn't understand wheel offsets and sizing at all.

read:

et20 on a 16x7 is not the same as 16x8 et20. each wheel will have different backspacing and different amounts of wheel sticking out farther from the hub.

you need to be more specific about what you want. are you looking to "stance" the car or put on some fat rubber ?

Sorry I didn't take that into account. I'm looking for stance and to sit flush. Looking for lots of concave along with it. That's my goal
