E90 335i wheel spacer center bore size.

What size should the center bore be on a wheel spacer for a 2007 e90 sedan 335i?

Also any objections to aluminum spacers?

Thanks in Advance.

72.6 bore. Alluminium spacers are fine as long as hubcentric.

Not to resurrect a dead thread, but I have seen 72.5, 72.6 and 72.56 bores on spacers.

I have a 2008 e90 with stock 162 wheels and have been looking for which one is correct in addition to why the other isn't

Conrad, those measurement you listed are awfully close to each other.
My guess, go with name brand hub centric spacers websites and see what size you find listed.

But physically speaking, the smaller the bore size and it fits.....go for it.
But just put brake anti-seize between the wheel hub, the spacer and the rotor.
This way it won't be a pain in the neck to remove if need be.

Regards,
DN

All those measurements are so close to each other. The 72.5mm bore ones will fit the most snug, but honestly any of those options should work. Just be sure to clean your hub really well and apply anti-seize.

One thing to consider is that even though they are all advertised at 72.5, 72.56, and 72.6, there are some slight tolerances as far as the machining goes. IE: The 72.5 spacers may actually be 72.52, 72.51, etc.

Hmmm, I just ordered spacers and was done with it. There was not a choice on bore size.
