Hi,

Is anyone running 10j et50 on the rear of an E87?

Will they fit?

I’m on 9.5J ET50 and I’m about 1mm from being completely flush with the arches so you’ll poke 6.4mm more so you’ll actually poke around 5.4mm which is IMO too much.

I’m in a E82 which is very similar fitment and on 9.5J ET50 and I’m about 1mm from being completely flush with the arches so you’ll poke 6.4mm more so you’ll actually poke around 5.4mm which is IMO too much.
