MAK Luft 18x7.5

Post by XWV » Sun Nov 05, 2017 9:48 pm

I'm looking for winter wheels for the 140, since it looks like it'll arrive at the end of November now. I'm looking to keep the car as close to stock as possible, but don't like any of BMW's winter sets much. The Luft caught my eye, probably as a result of someone else's pics on here, and I like that it's available in standard BMW sizes and fitments - I'm inclined to go with a square 18x7.5 ET45 225/40R18 setup to match BMW's standard winter sizes, but I'm concerned about possible caliper clearance issues.

Obviously most of you will run wider aftermarket wheels, but has anyone here fitted 18x7.5 Lufts to an F20 with M-Sport brakes? Also, if someone's running a staggered 7.5/8 setup without problems, can I assume the rears will fit if the fronts do?

They should be fine... I think there is someone on the forum with them..

Square setup will allow for 225 all round which you can rotate every winter to get the most out of them

Found it although he is using 8" rears but 7.5" all round will be fine
