Wheel sizes

Post by Neil b » Sun Sep 10, 2017 4:27 pm

I know it's been done to death,but want some expert advice.
I have 140i totally standard and want different wheels two sizes I'm interested in are,
18x8 et34 72.6 centre bore or 18x8et43 72.6 CB
Don't want any rubbing issues and don't want it to Carlos fandango.
Going to reuse original tyres

Cheers

If you are sticking to std. ride height then I personally think 8" ET43 would be better...

8" ET34 would look pretty stanced and although you shouldn't get any rubbing issues with std. rubber it may look awkward if not on lowered suspension in my opinion (YMMV)

They should fit OK

They are not off an F82 M4 though as the below width/offset wheels are for that model (replicas perhaps?)

Although the 3/4 series wheels are more aggressive offset, they will fit an F2x..

One thing to take note is that the std. tyre sizes are larger diameter (bigger % profile e.g 40 instead of 35 anf 35 instead of 30) than that of the F2x so your speedo will be out a little if you use those original tyres
