Hey there fellow F11'ers, & F10'ers,

I have the most daft question that I cannot find the answer to an Google...

I recently leased a used BMw F11 2012 535d xDrive here in europe.
It came with no winter wheels and now I must purchase a set before
October comes and we here in Switzerland must change the rubber over...

So my daft question is:

Is there any difference between the Wheels Spec as show here?
Regarding the Offset - IS30 vs ET30 - are these both the Same just using different Code IS vs ET?

Daft or what.
Thanks and a free beer gesture to the first to answer correctly? :)

As for me and the research I did prior to getting my winter wheels and tires, it was a simple matter of finding a set of wheels that were compatible with the car and then choosing a decent set of tires. For winter the wheels are 18" instead of 19" (extra cushion for the inevitable pothole) other than that everything matches the recommended sizes as listed in the owners manual. Pretty much a no brainer. [easy]

thanks

Hi MSgtMel,

thanks for your time... tut mir leid meine deutsch ist nicht so gut.

I know I want 18" wheels and not 17's or 19's. I also know what tires I'd go for, Conti's...

I just see advertised online wheels statingg EH2+ IS 30 & EH2+ ET 30

I just want to know the difference - so to buy the Correct Set if there is any between
the "IS" and the "ET" Specs?

no humourus relpies needed - I can think of plenty ;-)

Thanks again
Ben

You have probably done what I did and came up empty on the web search for the IS, ET comparison, guess the only thing to do would be to ask some local tire/wheel house what they mean and go from there. Good Luck!

P.S. My choice for the winter was Michelin Alpin PA4. Grips in all the type of nasty we get around here and quiet on dry pavement.

Yup empty results...

Thanks MSgtMel - its seems like this is a strange one.

I'll pop to my local BM dealer and ask - Then I'll post the info here ;-)

Cheers also for the heads up on your tyre choice.

MFG
Ben
