    Hello all E30 drivers. I just saw for sale on ebay a nice set of 15 inch BBS Basket Weaves. I don't believe these are IX wheels, I believe they are for the regular E30. So check them out.

    I think those are iX wheels; it's my understanding that they have a higher-than-usual offset...

    I just looked this up, I am almost positive these wheels are for the standard E30. The standard E30 runs an offset of 35mm, the 325ix runs an offset of 45mm. I got the info from "BMW 3 Series Enthusiast's Companion" by Jeremy Walton, Bentley Publishers. The guy selling the wheels says the offset is 38mm. Also, ix wheels have almost no lip, the standard E30 wheels have a bit of a lip. These wheels have a lip. So, I am sure these are NOT ix rims. :D
