: Wheel Fit question

03-12-2007, 01:42 PM
I'm looking at getting some take-off wheel/tires for my 05 525 (has style 138 wheels)

I know the other wheels for the 5 series will fit (style 124, 123, 122 or 166) but how about any of the other BMW model like the M3, 645/650, 7 series?

I see a few M3 (e46), 6 series, and even 7 series OEM wheel/tire sets for sale and was wondering if those will fit my car

I'm finding out that sometimes buying these take-offs is cheaper than buying a whole set of 4 new tires.

First of all, make sure cheap wheels are OEM wheels and not replicas. Replicas may or may not fit correctly, it is hit and miss, some people report vibrations.

Go to http://www.realoem.com/bmw/select.do and check which wheels fit your car. Write down part number and talk to your dealer.
