    looking at what Austine said about the wheels thats the right description for them. They'd go much better on a hatch back like a Saxo or a Golf for example. Still there wheels at the end of the day, something classy and not overly sharp would go well with your car. Have a look at the e30 forum at www.e30zone.co.uk plenty of E30's on there should give you an idea what you could go for, btw stick an M-Tech2 kit on that and you'll be rolling, cos your interior is immaculate.

    ACS Type II wheels are still available in 4x100 for your car. Offered in 14, and 15 inch sizes. I see them pop up used from time to time. If you want 17's there is a company in asia that makes picture perfect 17x7.5 ACS Type II replicas, again in 4x100. Or you can convert to 5x120 like me :)

    austine30 - thank you for your comments! I agree with what you said completely, I've also seen many e30's with bad wheels. Good thing for me that I scoped out all my other options before I picked my wheels. AC Schnitzers were what I really wanted to get, but without a 5-lug convert, I wouldn't be able to get any. I wouldn't have ever gone to a local tire shop for my wheels - they were ordered from Huntington Park, CA from an aftermarket wheel shop that specialized in BMW, AUDI and Mercedes. Since these wheels had to be offset, I ordered custom offset 15mm spacers and longer chrome bolts that ran me up an additional $300.00. The tires were on sale though - $57.00 apiece, and what a great deal that was for Nankang's premium rubber!

    Those wheels are way to boy racer to me. e30's need tasteful wheels to set them off, not whatever the local tire shop has on clearance. Rest of the car looks like a fairly clean stock example.
