Offset and bolt pattern HELP! PLEASE!

Hi all,

I'm looking to get a new set of wheels for my 07' 323i.

Which of these would fit:


18" 8.5 5x120mm Offset: 35
18" 8.5 5x114.3mm Offset: 38
18" 8.5 5x114.3mm Offset: 45

i'm looking for aggressive stance. What would you recommend?

Thanks for your help guys!

How aggressive of a look are you going for? You will not be able to achieve that look using non-staggered wheels.

18" 8.5 5x120mm Offset: 35
  • Will be fine. Just make sure the hub bore is 72.6. Using this set up you will be able to rotate your wheels to extend your tire life.
18" 8.5 5x114.3mm Offset: 38
  • WILL NOT WORK. BMW bolt pattern is 5x120.
18" 8.5 5x114.3mm Offset: 45
  • WILL NOT WORK. BMW bolt pattern is 5x120.

The maximum offset you can run with 18x9.5 is 45 in the rear.
But you have to have a 5x120mm setup.

If anything try to get staggered. Front 18x8.5 and rear 18x9.5 or anything bigger.
