    i test fitted alloys on a e36 the other day and they fitted ok. the gap between tyre and the bottom spring holding part of the shock was only about 10mm.
    if it clears the shock when fitted will it clear it on speed bumps as dont think shock to tyre distance shanges with steering lock or bumps.
    thanks

    So long as you have clearance when the vehicle has been lowered off the jack and back into it's usual driving position then you will be fine as the distance between the wheel and tyre and the bottom of the spring cup does not alter when driving

    yes mate you will be fine even if you hit 100 bumps as the top off the tyre will not get fatter and even if it did rub you would only need to get some wheel spacers so all is good
