Help with Type 44 Wheel Install

1653 Views 9 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  evilfactoryowne

I've bought some Type 44 wheels a while back and thought I'd have them installed on my 330xi. I have a few questions though. I've heard much about offset. Firstly, what is offset, and do I have to worry about it during the install? Secondly, if it is a concern, is this something I should have my dealer do or something that my local tire store can do? Any suggestions appreciated.

Just remember when installing wheels (particularly all four), that you make sure the wheels are set properly on their mounts. And when you torque, make sure you torque them in a cross star pattern.

I mounted my wheels on, and had a horrible balancing problem with them until I untorqued and retorqued the wheels.

A proper torque wrench is really useful.
