And make sure to check out the weight before buying, if performance matters to you at all.

Some of those 3SDM (whilst being very pretty show wheels) are massively heavy, doing horrible things to your unsprung.

Can anyone tell me what alloys are on here?

I'm going to view the car and if I did buy them, I'd want to change them back to standard. Is that going to be a costly change? :(

I think those are the 19s configurable on the continent.

361s?

Perfect! Just what i needed to hear. Was in doubt if 8x19/225 ET37 would rub when fully loaded.

Hi folks, just wondering of anyone can help me with fitment of new wheels before I buy them. I have seen a set which are:


18" diameter, 8.5J, 5x120 pattern - ET38. Now I know (think) the width and stud pattern is ok, but I am a little worried about the offset at the rear, the wheels are square so same size all round, will there be room for them in the rear arches? I have a 2015 M135i.

Apologies if this is a stupid question, been trying to get my head round it for a while but quite difficult to get a definitive answer as our cars are fairly new.

The rear looks a bought tight. Et42 may be better.

18 by 8 et40 regarded as good fitment.

OK thanks, can I ask where you mean tight? trying to get my head round this so I dont make an expensive mistake. Tight under the arches as the offset is too large?

And does this look better? 2 x 8.0Jx18 and 2 x 9.0Jx18 with offset of 40?

8J ET40 are fine for the front, 9J ET40 on the rear aren't. You'd want about 44/45 max

These are 8.5J ET42. Image

Going by the idea that 9.5J need to be ET50 and 9J ET44, 8.5J ET38 should just about be ok. I'd be concerned about the front though.

Which wheels are you looking at, someone might be able to help if they have experience of them

This is a real pain in the :censored: Trying to find something a bit different but struggling with the sizes big time. Looking at these

Tell me about it. Spent 4 months looking, found a set and ordered them. Had a call back the next day to say they won't fit because of the size of the brake calipers. I couldn't find anything unique that I actually liked so ended up getting a tried and tested set

Yes it is becoming a bit annoying now, might just leave it for a while and wait and see if something comes up. I have always had VW's in the past and never really had this problem before. Your wheels look spot on btw :thumbs:
