Been looking for nice wheels for a while and ran across 2011 750i stock wheels on craigslist. Would like to know if they will fit without any problems.

They should fit fine.

Whoa whoa whoa not necessarily man! You have to make sure the offset is the same! And if not, you're going to need some spacers but you should still be able to run them :thumbup: a few members have done it before and it looks terrible without spacers

Found these wheels taken off 2011 750. My limited research indicates they are:

1. Wheel is 245/50/18 (18x8)
2. Offset (is30)

See pic...

Not sure if I need spacers or anything else to fit these onto my 2005 745i. If anyone knows, please do share.

Unless you're getting a great deal on those, I would search for another set. Fitment should bolt right on. Just like Suri said though, make sure offsets are the same or the wheels would appear sunk in.

These are the wheels I have on my car. I like the way they look, but problem is the brake dust is welded in and I cannot get it off. Anyway, I don't know what kind of offset my wheels have, but I'm hopping same as the 2011 wheels I found for sale (which have offset is30)

I like the ones you have on there now. Did you try a brake cleaner? There has to be some type of solution that can clean those babies up. No sense in letting a nice set of wheels go.

I suggest a good wheel cleaner (EagleOne A2Z Wheel/Tire Cleaner, Sonax, P21), a wheel face brush or a wash mitt dedicated to wheels, and a an Mini-EZ Detail Brush for the crevices. If you have some brake dust particles stuck on the wheels, a clay bar and/or wheel polish can remove it.

The new F01/02 has different offsets than out cars and would require spacers to work with our setups. I remember looking at the Style 312's for my car and came to the conclusion I'd need almost 25mm spacers to accomplish a factory look, and 32mm to get it a bit more flush like I wanted!

These are the wheels I have on my car. I like the way they look, but problem is the brake dust is welded in and I cannot get it off. Anyway, I don't know what kind of offset my wheels have, but I'm hopping same as the 2011 wheels I found for sale (which have offset is30)

The brake dust can be removed with the right product and tools. I HIGHLY SUGGEST getting TRIX (from the makers of Iron Cut) and a good stiff bristled detaling brush and to take the wheels off and clean them. I did this with the wheels on my 760 and it removed about 99% of the baked on dust. There are a few spots that have really crusted on dust that a second time should remove!

Today I called two separate BMW dealerships and asked to talk to those in charge service dept.

1. One said the wheels won't fit at all
2. The other said they would fit but would stick out just a little bit more than stock wheels.

They're both retarded.

1) They will fit.
2) When they do fit, they will be sunken in, NOT sticking out :confused:

That's why you need spacers to make them look good.

where can I get those spacers? and what type should I look for?

I kinda rather have my wheels stick out just a little bit more than stock.

my original wheels offset is ET24 and the wheels I'm thinking of getting have offset IS30. Don't know what the ET and IS stand for, by I'm guessing both are positive offsets and I need a 6mm spacers (30-24). Is this making sense?

We have the H&R Trak Spacers in stock which are hub centric spacers, so they will bolt right up! You just have to find out how much clearance you need so you can determine the size you need.

If I understand correctly, I just need 6mm spacers (offset 30-24). Do they come in that size? Or are there only certain sizes they come with?

ModBargains
09-26-2012, 06:53 PM
The H&R Spacers (HR-BMW-3-Series-Wheel-Spacers-MW) only come in 5mm or 10mm at this time. Let me know and i would be happy to help you out!
