Will these fit an E90 sedan?

Hello,

I found a set of 18x8, 5x120, ET15 wheels that came on a 2002 5 series. The tires are 245/45/18 all around.

Could these work on my E90?

Please see picture of the wheels.


Also.. does anyone know what model BBS these are?

Wheels yes, Tyres NO. Tyres are too wide and wrong height ratio. You would need something like 225/40/18, maybe even 215/40/18 to front.

The tire specs are not ideal for the car, so you'll need to replace those. The wheel specs are more aggressive than we'd recommend. Also, if they came off of an E39, you will need a 74.1mm to 72.6mm hubring.

I'm running 245/40/18 tires on my '07 328xi w/ Konig Deception rims. They are a little taller than my previous 225/45/17 set up so the fender gap is a little smaller. No rubbing or issues.

With 18x8 ET15 wheels, somehow i doubt that? Also the tyres on those wheels are 245/45/18. Which are way too big.
