You're going to need spacers. The F30 has a wheel offset of 34 if I am not mistaken. So you'd need 15mm spacers to get close to OEM fitment.

Good find gohornedfrogs!! can we compile a list of wheel models that are perfect replicas of bmw wheels? I think we can exclude the CSL type wheels because they are so easy to find.

My understanding is that the ticking is harmless, and that driving the card hard for a little while will eliminate the sound; all it needs is for the oil to warm up.

What kind of mileage do you have?
