    I really really really want 6ULs!
    Definitely nickel.
    They're going to be 15x9 if I can get my hands on some. But I can live with 15x8 too. No matter what, I'm going to have to run spacers to get them to fill the flares because of the way Emilio offsets them.

    :EDIT: Fixed!

            Pardon my BMW ignorance, but is the e30 4x100?

            The 15x9 and 15x8 are +36, the 15x7.5 is +34, and the 15x7 is +25.

                lol you are excused sir.

                yeah its 4x100, but bmws have weird offsets. ill probably get the 15x8s if it happens and run a HUGE spacer.

                    when your car is running we should swap wheels for a photo-op.

                          6ULs - I'll take 3 sets please!

                          I want some 15x8s for road racing, 15x9s for autocross (275 Hoosiers!), and another set of 15x8s for the street (probably a little wide for the current selection of 225s available in 15s, but I'm hoping somebody makes a 245 or 255 at some point in the future).

                          Can someone validate my logic here with offsets? Would a set of 15x9s with the same offset as a pair of 15x8s stick out a half inch further? I.E. would the lip of a 15x9 +36 wheel be .5 inches further out than a 15x8 +36 wheel?

                            I would imagine if the offset is the same, then it would have to go 1" further outside. I believe that the difference between the 15x8 36 and 15x9 36 is literally 1" extra lip and nothing else.

                              This link is really helpful:

                              http://www.1010tires.com/WheelOffsetCalculator.asp

                              Since offset is the distance from the mounting surface to the centerline of the wheel, a wheel that is one inch wider than another with the same offset will increase by a half inch on both sides.

                              In terms of the 6ULs, this means that on a 15x9 vs a 15x8 (both +36), the outer lip will push a half inch further out to the edge of the fender, and the inside lip will move a half inch closer to the shock/etc.
