Who said 128 style wheels wouldnt fit a F01/F02?

I guess they do fit after all..

Ive never had a single issue with mines and I had them now for 3yrs...I wouldnt put them on my next car if I get the F02 because they're aged for me but they are very strong!

I would like to hear from the owner of that car. The off-sets are such that the wheel will rub on the inside of the rear tires.

Two dealers and even BMWNA confirmed these cannot be used on the F01/F02. In addition, two wheel makes familiar with the rims also stated this. If those are in fact 128's, let's get the owner to chime in on their function.

I saw one other F02 on Ebay about 2 months ago that had these 128 wheels on and thought the same thing. They probably have spacers on or something.....and I don't think spacers are something you normally want to run on a car IMHO.

Get the style 311's....they are the updated version of the style 128.

Yeah, I bet your right; spacers. I remember talking to a tech about this and he advised against spacers as it changes how the car drives. I don't know, but I declined the risk.

I am sure BMW dealer, and BMWNA was going off of the stock offsets. In the aftermarket/custom scene, people mess with wheel offsets all the time.

The front should just go right on there, but the rear is where you may have to get a little creative. Worse case, fender roll, or run a narrower tire size.

I agree im not a fan of spacers, but many people use them for a more aggressive wheel stance.
