E90 Wheels on Z

Post by Squid » Thu Dec 21, 2017 9:06 am

Hi, I have gone through pages and pages of posts and still confused. I have my old winter wheels which were on my E90 and are 17's 8j with ET34. They have 225/45's all round and I was hoping to use them on my E85 3.0si. Will they fit OK or cause an issue?

find the wheels you have on the zed, this'll tell you their exact dimensions and offsets. then compare to the E90 wheels you plan on swapping on.

slightly unrelated, but style 107 Z4 wheels are exactly the same specs as style 72 MV1s off an E46, which is good as they're my track wheels :)

edit to add, looks like most E85 8" wheels are ET47, so an ET34 should still be fine, it'll just sit 13mm further out, which will unlikely be a problem.
