15x8 is the only acceptable street* wheel size for e30's

If you ruin your fenders and run 205 width tires it'll work perfectly.

No way, you can fit 16's under there fine. It also depends if you have late model one too as the fenders are different.

You can definitely fit 16's and 17's. 15's with a meaty tire just fit those cars best in my opinion.
