I'm thinking of getting these - will these be ok without rubbing etc?

8.5x19 (Front) & 9.5x19 (Rear)

No, those Riva's won't fit nicely, expect rear arch contact.

Why not just go for the 624m's? They're a bog standard fit on a 1 series, and highly sought-after/resellable.
2k is just a bit too steep, I actually posted the link to the wrong ones,it was these ones. If i went for ones without the wider rear would that make any difference?

If it comes to it I will probably have to just let my bank balance take a hit and get the 624m's

19 inch CH-Rs? Probably not much difference in cost to the 624 once tyres are added

Yes 116 = small brakes so no clearance issues to wheel spokes or barrel and 7.5 et 37mm means widen the tracks ~ 16mm in total so adds clearance to strut and won't foul on the bodywork.

I'm running F30 rims 8" wide et 34mm - no issues.

These look fantastic !, how do they drive, are they much heavier than the stock BMW 18s ?, I am worried about destroying the handling and acceleration if they are heavier. (had a bad experience with a aftermarket set of alloys on a golf which killed the acceleration to a surprising amount)

Thanks

That car is not mine so can't comment how they feel but from memory, I think the VMR wheels are similar weight to OEM 18's (which aren't lightweight anyhow)

Hoping for some advice on some alloys I already have (from a previous BMW) - they're sat in my shed with winter tyres already on and hoping they'll fit my 2012 M135i without rubbing problems etc.

They're 18" - 8" width ET42 with 225/40 R18 tyres on - have tried the online wheel offset calculators etc; just gauging opinion here for extra peace of mind!

They sound perfect, in theory. You're going to need to carefully trial fit a front and a rear, just to double check they clear the calipers.

You may get a clash with front brake calipers but 5-6mm spacers may resolve the clash.

I know a few have E series alloys on F series cars as winters etc
but is it backwards compatibile also

Will f20/f30 wheels fit E82

Is the difference in bolt size an issue?
