    14x6 is a really good fit for these cars with a 165/55/14 tire. Try to keep the offset between +10 and +30 for a decent fit with stock suspension. You can go up or down and inch in diameter pretty easily but 14" seems to be the sweet spot. I have found that searching for the bolt pattern (4x114.3) on Facebook Marketplace or Craigslist usually is the easiest way to find wheels.

        When running coil overs would +45 work? I found some e30 bbs wheels for 100 bucks where I live debating picking them up

          The rear would probably rub but you can get a 5mm or 10mm spacer as long as you get longer wheel bolts or swap to wheel studs and lug nuts. I think the front would be okay but I can't say for sure.

            Swapping to the Advance Coilover Suspension in the rear would help out the ride a lot and only costs about $200. You can find the write-up for what parts and stuff in the Suspension section of the forum.
