Hub Core Question

Hey there guys. I have a quick question for a buddy of mine. He is getting wheels for his 335i, and it is off a is300. The hub core on the is300 is 60.1 but the bmw one is 72.65. I have searched and searched but i guess it isint needed from going to a smaller hub core to a bigger one. It's all 72.65 to 60.1. I didnt find anything 60.1 to 72.65. Can anyone help me out ? Thank you.

The Lexus IS300 has a different bolt pattern...wheels are not cross compatible between it and the 335i.

Only way to make 60.1 hub bore to 72.6 is by drilling it bigger. I wouldn't recommend that.

Hi ! Gary this is not related to this post . I just recently purchased a 19ASA AR1 square set up from tirerack thru a shop which I pointed it out from the website which has the black center cap which the one I really wanted . But I got the silver raise cap which doesn't look good at all specially in my car I have Monaco blue with shadow line trim sport package . The shop where I bought contacted tirerack thru email but they said ( tirerack) that not all set up has that black center cap . So I did my little research I found out from one of the forum that its actually come with the black center cap same set up as mine.i bought I lot of stuff from you guys directly this is the first time I went outside because I wanted to pay all cash . I'm very disappointed I don't know which one is deceiving me . Thank you Gary I hope you could give me some answer . PM me if you could please thank you again

You'll need to enlarge the center bore. Take the wheel to a wheel repair shop and have the center bore enlarged. Only some wheels can the center bore be opened. You can't find a hub-ring since hub-rings are made to downsize the centerbore.
