Wheel problem
 
I just went to install my winter tire/wheel that I purchased from tire rack..bought sport edition A7 black 17" with Bridgestone blizzak...but the technician couldn't install them due to hub diameter issues. Has anyone had such issues? I confirmed this with tire rack sales associate before purchasing them! Any recommendations? :eek::dunno:

do you run stock or aftermarket wheels for the summer?

you may have a hubcentric ring still stuck on the hub if you run aftermarket.
they should fit-- the A7 for BMW comes with the correct centerbore and takes stock lugs and caps. all bmws aside from two models use the same centerbore for the past 15+ years

No mine are the original/stock 18" style 313 from the factory. Tire rack recommended minus size for the winter. Do I need to get the 18"? Would that make a difference?:dunno:
It's for 2012 335is

the 335is has the same brakes as the regular 335i, so the 17" A7 should fit-- at this point call the tire rack

my 2010 and 2007 335i's had no issues with 17" wheels

FYI the 335is hub diameter is different, apparently it measured at 73.02mm compared to 72.5mm. Tire rack was able to send me new wheels/tire and they look amazing!!! I will post pic later.

thats bizzare, the hub for the 335is is the same as the non IS, in fact, the part is used on quite a few other cars.
