All-wheel drive, turbo power and a Q-ship’s stealth.
So I just got an E30 and I have a set of 15x8 949 6ul's laying around from my MR2 (perfect fit fyi). Anyone here have them on their E30? I hear I need spacers, but I can't find anything specific.
Use this online calculator by plugging in the numbers for the OE wheels and then for the 6ul's:
Hope this helps!
You've got the car and the wheels? Get your ass outside and bolt them on and see if they fit.
I thought about these wheels for my E30, but between the initial cost and the 15mm spacers required to correct the offset, the TRM C1 was a much cheaper option... but if you already have the wheels, then spacers are pretty easy to find on either e30tech or R3Vlimited. I don't know what the hub size is on a Mr2, but you may need new rings as well.

It's raining, and my MR2 is taking up my garage space, the only flat place I have. Pretty sure I need spacers and then I need longer wheel studs as well... Nobody has them on their E30?
You'll need 20mm offset or less to fit them on the e30
Let's see those pics of the 6ULs on your mr2

I wish. The car was hit 500 miles after I get the wheels and tires on the car, never even got a chance to take pictures. The MR2 is sitting in my garage on jack stands with no suspension. I never even wore through the coating on the tires, that's why I want to fit them on the E30 so badly.
Side note, anybody want MK1 MR2 parts? Part-out thread on MR2OC here: http://mr2oc.com/showthread.php?p=4121893#post4121893
I don't know if they'll fit but I support your choice of wheels
Seems nobody runs these on E30's, I think the wrong offset by quite a bit is the problem. I will be test fitting them soon and updating the thread with pics when I do. I don't want to run 20mm+ spacers.
