E60 winter wheels on F10?

Hello,

As mentioned in a previous thread I recently got into a 2014 528i x-drive after my 2008 528xi was totaled.

I have a set of BMW style 138 17" wheels with winter tires mounted (225/50/R-17) from the '08 car. ('08 had 18" wheels but bought smaller wheel / higher section tire for winter use). Tires are almost brand new.

As far I can tell online it looks like same bolt pattern and axle diameter as the '08 wheels but the rims have 13mm more offset than the wheels on the car now.

Anyone have any info they can share? Recommendations? Would it be safe to chuck them on the car and test them out?

TIA

Are you saying the offsets are the same to?

If they spin and don't rub there isn't a problem
There will be an inch smaller diameter which will make your speedometer even more wack than it already is.

The smaller wheel diameter is offset by higher section tires, the diameter at the road is the same with both 17" and 18" wheels.

But yes, the offset is the one thing that is different: -13mm with the E60 Type 138 wheels compared to the wheels currently on the car.

Thanks it sounds like it's at least OK to try them out,

E60 wheels have 20mm offset. Your car has even more offset. They will poke out but might work, look for contact on the outer edge of fenders.

It's the wheel that has an offset, not the car.
Xdrives have the need for higher offset than RWD.
Assuming standard width the E60 needs 43, the F10 needs 33.
As width changes so does offset requirement.
These numbers vary a little as do peoples definition of "Aggressive" .
Here is a website with a calculator to play around with numbers.

Looks like it should work, more of a difference than I thought though.

Due to dropping offset and width.

Wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong! Don't make blanket statements like that! Some may, yes, but AWD cars have larger offsets and ETs for OEM wheels for E60s range all over the map.

If they dont rub inside, use them for winter. What the hell, why not.
You already have snows on them. Save your other tires for a minute.
You might want to throw 1 in the trunk for a spare.
