E30 tire size


Recommended Posts

Spacers is dependent on too many factors. Offset and strut tube straightness to name two. 225 on Tire Rack C1 8” wheel is unlikely to need one if you haven’t done any crazy things with alignment. 10” wheels from JB will need spacers. Use an offset calculator to give you an idea

I’m running 225 on 15x9” wheel 20mm offset no spacers. Slight fender tweaks. I’m thinking of trying 245 on the 9” rims once I burn up my used 225’s. Hankook rs4 tires

What wheels are you using? Trying to find some 9’s that work. Found some but not sure on quality

I’m using the TR wheel 15x9(-20). Tire Rack wheel brand. Car came with 6 and I bought 4 from Tyler when he went to the 10” wheel. There are several other brands out there that would work. Early 4 lug Miata wheels are same offset I believe.

We ran the 245 R-S4s on 15 x 9s last time out, seemed to work just fine. I bought the 9" width specifically to use with either 225 or 245.

Looking for advise on tire size for a 1990 E30 track car. Any suggestions on size and brand would be appreciated. 

Thanks!

Have (6) 15x10 Basset Black Steel wheels I will sell, $300 for all 6, will include the proper lugnuts too. We ran them on our E30 for past 3 seasons.  245 Hankook RS4 stretched on there real nice.  Awesome performance.

Phil's Tire Service does have the e30 specific JRW 15x10's in stock I believe as well: https://philstireservice.com/shop/jrw-series-500-15x10-bmw-e30/

 

 

Edit to add: pretty sure this is the only place you can get them.....

We just purchased from Phils, 2 sets of 15x9 Joengbloods with custom E30 offset, no spacers required. He could order more if he gets the demand.
