TR wheels for 135is no center rings required

If you search for the wheel by make-year-model, when you find the wheel you like for your car on the TR website, scroll near the bottom to product description / reviews / included hardware / etc. and click on included hardware. If the wheels require centering rings for your car it will indicate that under included hardware.

I just ordered the Sparco Assetta Gara (black) 7.5 x 17 inch rims with 215/45R17 Michelin Alpin PA3 snow tires. Gill at TR guaranteed me no problems with fit and should work well.

Since these snow tires are not run-flats, I've also ordered a space-saver spare rim & tire from Bimmerzone that is supposed to fit the 135is. I wanted one anyway because as soon as the stock summer run-flats are worn I'm changing to non-run-flats (hate them). So eventually I would have needed a spare of some sort anyway. I'll post news when the space-saver arrives and is test fitted.

BTW, the Sparco Pista wheel 8 x 17 also fits the 135is with no centering rings or spacers required.
