ASA is licensed by BBS, should be very strong wheels.

Mystikal, what tire size would be ideal for 18" then?

If he gets the deal he says he's getting, I may be rolling with ASA's.

With either of those tires, you will have less than 1% speedo error (up to 3% is considered normal deviance). I think to pull off 18's you need some sort of aftermarket bodywork, on my car for example they would look a little big. I really like those particular ASA's though, I'd buy them. Be very careful though, Minis have a slightly smaller centrebore than E30's, so if those wheels are made to exact Mini spec, they WILL NOT work an on E30. Contacting ASA or even Tirerack will get you a firm answer on that, ask them for the centrebore measurement. It needs to be at least 57.1mm.

You will want 15mm H&R hubcentric spacers, with longer bolts or a stud conversion.

18's on a REALLY low e30 with a bodykit look good. I was running 18's on my e30 but found them too small (my car is really dumped) so i am now running 19's and they look and ride amazing...smoother than you could ever imagine.

What is the biggest spacer available? I'm hoping there is a 18mm hubcentric spacer, because that would bring an ET40 wheel right to ET22 which should let me run wide tires.

You can get H&R spacers in the following sizes:

5mm
8mm
15mm
20mm
25mm

Mini's have a 56.1mm centerbore. Those wheels are probably have a big centerbore since ASA are a lower end wheel.

But if they are too small a machine shop can easily take out 1mm without problems.

The geometry is right, as long as they are 5x120 they will fit on an M3 just fine.

Hi I am really interested in purchasing a set of ADR M-Classics. I have an '86 325e with a 4x100 bolt pattern.

ADR M-Classics
17"x7.5 or 17"x8.5
offset 45

I was wondering would this fit on my car? Would i need spacers? And what type size tire would you suggest to run with these rims?

PS. if hot linking isn't allowed i'll remove the pics and host them myself.
