In Reply to: Why not Run 18s? posted by Josh on August 21, 2000 at 23:53:20:
Lets look at the pros & cons of a +2 (+3 for most e30 m3 that came with 15" bbs's).
Pros: Looks really cool, bragging rights... etc
Cons: cost, harsh ride, increased weight, reduced tire selection, reduced performance, rubbing, wheel-arc damage, rim dings... etc.
People do track e30m3's with 18" (and larger)tires, but they are running larger arch quarters (extended) with more HP, larger wheels and different diff gearing to take advantage of the extra rubber.
I would like to run 18" wheels what are the pros and cons of doing this? I posted this before with no help. Any ideas.
