    I think I've heard of people using wobble bolts cause the bolt pattern is really similar. Adapters would probably be good to get the offsets right though.

    offset is +32 on salad shooters. You want to be flush but no rubbing, it doesn't exist. Honestly, your going to have to be dumped and its gonna have to be wicked flush for that setup to look even remotely good. Somewhere around a +10 offset in the front and around zero in the rear depending on roll and pull stretch, and camber, if you have camber plates in the front. It'll vary depending on all that.

    i was under the impression salad shooters had the same +56 ET, or is that only for the 9.5 wides? my brother is putting some salad shooters on his e36 as well, he got 1.25 inch adapters, and also his fenders are cut on the inside to make a little extra room. but they are not pulled so it sounds like you are on similar setups.his wheels are 9.5's all around though and poke a bit. if your smaller wheels have a lower offset number than i would get a thinner adapter/spacer. for tires i guess for 8.5's i would run 205/40-16, thats a little stretched but not crazy or anything. whenever im trying to figure out wheel fitment i use www.willtheyfit.com. its really the best tool and also www.tyrestretch.com will help if you need to see tire sizes on actual wheels. and of course the inside of the wheel should have a stamped number telling you its offset if your not sure. i will talk to my brother about his setup and get pictures if needed , happy to be of help if i can

    at least maybe you will all say to go much lower but still im rubbing all the time and with the bad road in Quebec city i can go more lower with 16 x 8.5

    do you think with a 195/45/16 or 205/45/16 that will make the small wheels gap better ?

    yes if it possible or at least put some 195/45/15 that would go height a bit and after lower it to make the wheels gap less ... cause i know i want to go lower but 16 on a e36 is hard to make the stance perfect and go lower at the same time ... and in Quebec the road is so crappy that there is a few that is really low!!
