M135i brakes under style 216 alloys; Go/no go?

Post by Demelitia » Tue Jul 17, 2018 1:01 pm

Does anyone have any idea if they’ll clear my alloys?
I’ve been eyeing a few sets on eBay for a while, figured I’d ask and it might make the decision for me one way or another.

If they're 18 inch rims then they will clear the brakes

The reason I ask is I’ve read this thread. http://babybmw.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=70850
Running 208m with 3mm spacers and there’s barely any clearance.

All brake talk aside, those wheels look brilliant on the F series. I’ve never seen them on one before.
