Imminent new wheels question??????

Post by danboy74 » Mon May 21, 2018 9:56 pm

Hi Guys and Gals

SO the wife has a E87 2008 123D, the wheels the car came with are 19's, 9.5J on the rear, slightly narrower on the front.

anyway these huge / wide wheels occasionally rub the rear splash guard when driving 4 up.

she has decided she wants a new set of wheels.

SO............. what is the best size to go for, I'm leaning towards 18's, i know she wants black diamond cut ones.

but what should i go for. 8J, or 8.5J or 9J, staggered or same all round??? also what ET????

thanks in advance

Dan

A nice OEM+ fitment for all 1 Series (E8* and F2*) are 18" x 8J ET40 all round.

The fact that they'll fit all 1er's makes selling them very easy if you need to, or you can transfer them to a 125d if she wants a newer Bimmer at a later date.

Or for a slightly more aggressive fitment, how about these? http://www.bmautosport.co.uk/showroom/p ... 154_25_203

I originally bought the Cades Artemis (before my Zito 935’s) and they are a lovely looking wheel :)
Nice fitment too 👍

Yup, they come in 18x8" ET42 which is perfect. :)
