The F20 Alloy Wheel Thread

Post by HypeM135i » Tue Jan 21, 2014 8:23 am

Thought it might be a nice idea to create a thread with optional alloy wheels for the F20, either standard or after market with the actual make and model. I'll kick it off with these, haven't seen an actual F20 with them on yet but they look stunning non the less...

P.S. — Are the standard M135i wheels 17 or 18? Also that guy here who has the nice white M135i with the black OZ Ultra wheels on, what size are yours?

P.S. — I am tempted with the graphite OZ Ultraleggera wheels, does anyone have a picture with them actually on an EB rather than photoshop?

I think it's a good idea to have a sticky for an official Aftermarket Alloy wheel thread for the F20 as there is one that was for the 1 Series (Generic) but all that's in there is E8x ones...

Things got a bit lost with the introduction of the F20 section and subsequent M135i sub forums and most newer members only use these sections now so it becomes more difficult to find things which may have been posted in the previous correct sections.

Marco sort of started one here albeit it was more to start asking questins about his own possible choice of wheel rather than an official aftermarket F20 wheel picture thread

http://www.babybmw.net/viewtopic.php?f=53&t=56445" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

There are quite a few going back the last couple of years too if you do a search...

Maybe the moderators can create a sticky somewhere, either Aftermarket section or F20 section otherwise this one will just get lost like the others.. I must admit it would save having to paste the same old pictures over and over again on different threads :D

Edit: you must have edited your post when I was posting this :lol:

Standard wheels are 18x7.5" ET45 front and 18x8" ET52 rear

Mine are 18x8 ET40 in matt black but graphite silver is only available in 18x8 ET34 so a bit more aggressive than mine and may cause some rubbing?

Great thread, im useless when it comes to wheels and fitment. Anyone know what dimensions the standard car can handle without problems? Ie stud pattern, offsets etc?

A thread like this is only really useful if people post details of the wheels in a std. format.

Seen this format from German Forum where people just copy/paste... Germans are efficient though :lol:

e.g.
Make : BMW Performance Style 405
Size/offset : Front 19x7.5 ET45 Rear 19x8 ET52
Tyres : Pirelli P Zero Front 225/35/19 Rear 245/30/19
Comments : Lowered on Eibach Pro kit springs with 12mm spacers front/rear. No rubbing issues

This way all details are there for everyone to see and will see what can be fitted :)

Have to say those oz ultras are the best wheels in this thread IMO! They look really nice. I'm trying to find something for my m235i. Was looking at some forged wheels from USA like a lot of USA m3 owners have. Offsets seem a massive pain!

Sooty - do the Ultras go straight on or does it involve a bit of faffing about?

As mentioned my wheels are OZ Ultraleggera (matt black) 18x8" ET40 all round on 225/40/18 Falken HS439 winter tyres and I have no problems with fitment

18x8 ET40 is only available in bright silver and matt black. For some reason Graphite Silver in 18x8 is only available in ET34 (probably for 3 Series) but you may be able to sqeeze them in at your risk? For a reference they will stick out more by 6mm to my images below.

OZ also have a wider 18x9" option for the rear but this is ET40 (13mm further out to below images) which I personally think you will risk rubbing issues without some work (neg camber, arch roll and/or stretched tyres)

This is my car and lowered 20mm front and 25mm rear compared to std. M135i suspension
