Is it looking like something it isn’t ?
offsets are lower i think, plus the bolt holes are 14mm as opposed to 12mm on the 92, i do like them though, lovely looking wheels
I don't think they suit the E92? Incidentally I was browsing Autotrader and saw these, although something doesn't look quite right. They're probably reps:
/\ I'm liking that, same colour as mine
So are e92 wheels not compatible with the new m3/4? I'm surprised if they have changed the hole size.
Those wheels make it look like a standard 3 series imo
Agreed, I couldn't put my finger on it but now you say..... they do have elements of the of of the more 'standard' current 3 series wheels
Think they look crap tbh. Bit like when people put M3 wheels on a standard E92. Can't beat the 359s for the E92.
Sorry but think them wheels are the worst M wheels they have produced in years!
M666 on the other hand would look better, possibly a bit OTT on e92
I was thinking or the M4 competition wheel 763 or at a push the 666
So to fit an f80 the wheels would need to be machined out?
..According to post 2, the bolt holes are larger on the newer wheels. Not just a simple case of machining.
I don't like that at all...
How do people do it the other way then, the bolts must be pretty loose in the holes.
They look wrong.
I do apologise, it would appear I misread your post, you're talking about fitting e92 wheels to an f80? Assuming there is enough material in the right places then yes, they would need to be machined out, but why would you want to?
I think the "m4" wheels pictured above are fakes.. saying that, someone at work has an e93 m3 with very similar wheels in black, when I mentioned to him they wernt standard he looked confused and thought they were.
The reason being is i own an e92 m3, but would like to move to an F80. I've just bought some e92 winter wheels thats all. Is the bolt head the same size?
Bolt head is still 17mm but the thread is 14mm as opposed to 12mm on the 92 and every other previous bmw.
Just to be difficult lol. I'm guessing that just opening up the hole would work?
