Style 90 Fitment on E46

Anyone tried to install style 90 wheels on E46, or any wheels from E53\E65 with M14 bolts?

I know, they look ugly from the first glance, but they have cap like steelies on them, which makes them ugly

But they are forged, weight 9kg, you can buy them new and best thing - they are freaking cheap, someone might use them as winter beater wheels.

Part number 36116753236

https://www.turnermotorsport.com/p-6...uine-bmw-part/ 105 bucks for new OE forged 17inch wheel.

Size is 17x8 ET24 5x120, hub bore is 72.5 (as in E46), only problem is - bolt size is M14x1.5 vs our M12x1.5 .

Question is - how I can mitigate that issue? Convert to studs and use 19mm lug nut to make it sit tight? Try to find M12x1.5 19 head bolts? I really don't want to tap hubs for M14 wheels.

Those do look pretty good without the caps on them!

I ran them on my sedan and now in the winter on my compact.

The stock bolts will work without any issue since the cone angle is the sames.

I've tracked my car with these wheels and stock bolts.

They are very light and forged. If the offset was +5mm more it will be perfect.

Awesome, that's what I needed to hear, going to get them pretty soon, thanks!
What tires do you use? Any issues with rubbing?

Nope. No rubbing.

I ran -1.5F camber. Rear fenders are rolled.

I ran the standard tire size 225/45.

I also ran an additional 5mm spacers in the rear..

Awesome, I have almost new 225/45 on mine, so I can just swap wheels and be done (maybe 'll add spacers as you did), thanks
