Which other BMW wheels fit our cars?

Chaps,

Which other BMW wheels fit our cars?

Would Z3/4 wheels fit?

Would 5 series wheels fit?

Would 6 series wheels fit?

Cheers,
Steve

Hi,

I think it's as follows.

Firstly, you'll need a minimum size of 17" wheels.

Z3/Z4 may fit but the offsets are in the 40s compared to the mid-30s the E9x takes.

5 series - If it's a e39 then definitely not - the bores bigger. If its the E60, I believe these will not either - they have the same bore, but the offset is in the 20's - no good.

6 series - not sure but I guess similar to the 5 series.

I'd stick to anything of an E9x to be honest (if possible)

Hope that helps

As above, plenty will fit physically but offsets will rarely be right.

Does the offsets mean the wheels will be at the wrong angle?

I do like some of the 5 series wheels, but I've never seen anyone put them on an E92.

I'm a little new when it comes to offsets!

Cyprio - thank you.

I'm going to look around and see what other wheels may fit my E92 as I would like to be a little different than everyone else. However, I may just settle for some 18's..
