The stock length of the OEM lug studs are 26.4mm. You will need the longer 33.3mm lugs to accommodate the 7.5mm spacers. Just make sure you buy hub centric wheel spacers.

Bmw uses hub centric wheels not lug centric. If you use universal spacers that are not hub centric you might end up with bad steering wheel shake.
