God's Chariot. The E30 was produced primarily from 1982 through 1991. The cabriolet was the one exception which was produced through 1993.

BMW wheels

Im looking for a set of wheels that will fit my 1991 BMW 325 ix. Not sure of the lug pattern. Preferrably used, to save some money. I know there are some wheels that come stock on BMW's that i really like but have not any luck finding any.

Welcome to the fest!

Lug pattern is 4 x 100mm. IMPORTANT!>>>Center bore is 57.1mm BMW's use hubcentric wheels, that is, the center bore locates the wheel, not the lug bolts. The center bore of the wheels must fit the hub. If you get OEM wheels in 4 x 100, they will fit.

Check Craigslist, Bimmerfest "For Sale" ads.

Re: BMW wheels

You're welcome! One other thing to consider: wheels with 4x100 lug pattern and a bore bigger than 57.1mm can work if you use hubcentric rings to center the wheels.

Re: BMW wheels

Another thing to remember is that standard E30 rims have a low offset, unlike the 325ix.
The factory wheel specs:
14" Bottlecaps: 14x6", ET33 (all non-iS non-iX cars, basically)
14" Basketweaves: 14x6.5", ET30 (all iS cars and some eS cars)
15" Basketweaves (iX): 15x7", ET41 (all 325iX models)
15" Basketweaves (Euro-only): 15x7" ET24 (option on European cars)
