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

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:

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.
