Mein Auto: 2012 135i
E90 Rim fitment onto a 128i

Hi All,

I'm currently looking into getting a set of winters for my car and found a great deal on a set off an e90 sedan.

Size of the tires is : 225/45 R17

OEM tires on my 128i are 205/55/16

I'm aware it's not the most ideal idea to get bigger winters, but I plan on getting a 135i next year so I believe I will require the 17" for those to clear the brakes.

Anyways as far as offset goes, will I be fine, or will I require spacers?

They will fit. Same size I have on my 128i for winter.

Any spacers required, or did they go right on? What kind of rims are yours on?

I believe that the 17's you are looking for should be from the e46. I have mounted my winters on OEM BMW wheels - pictures elsewhere - and those came from the e46. The offset on the 128 (as also the 135) is pretty close to the ones on the e46. The e90 I believe has a different offset.

If they are from an e46 then they will def. fit. I've got my old E82 wheels on my E46.

Are your tires also 225 width? I've heard they may stick out a bit (205 being ideal)
