Z4 Style 107 wheels

Hi guys,

I'll just come out and say that I don't get wheels at all. I've got a facelift 330Ci with the standard 17" wheels (style 117).

Will these Z4 wheels work without the need for adjustments? Just "plug and play" if you will?

Thanks for the help!

OP is right, they are 107s not 202s.

They will fit, I'd run 10-15mm spacers front and rear but should plug and play.

have you looked at the 107s even? Look at the shape of the holes buddy. 202s ovals, 107s round. The ad he posted has wheels with round holes.

107s and 202s are reeaaaallly close. Had to compare em side by side to tell the difference. I prefer the 107 tho. Cleaner looking wheel.

My mistake, yeah I thought they were the same until I saw the oval and circle in the detail!

They are the 107s in the listing. Can tell by the smoother areas around the lugs, if nothing else.

Will putting these wheels on make my speedo inaccurate to some degree? Will I need to get it recalibrated?

EDIT: Just looked at some online calibrators, and it said that it would be going .45% faster on the front wheels and 1.4% faster on the rear wheels, which wheels are the odometer readings coming from? Or is it not that simple?

should be 255/35s on your rear. Won't change your speedo enough to matter.
