In Reply to: Will 14", 35mm offset wheels work on an 02 posted by DK on June 27, 2001 at 08:25:58:

The offset of E30 6x14 bottlecap wheels is 35 mm. The fit on an 02 is quite good, but not always perfect. The tire shoulder often rubs on the inner fender wall at full steering lock; this is not a big problem.

Got an opportunity to go from 13" steel to 14" alloys but the offset is 35mm, not the 30mm of the bottlecaps so many folks have. 5mm is only about 1/4" but that can be a lot if they rub.
Thanks
