Anzio Turn 17x8 or Sport Tuning T3 for Winter Set Up

Anybody tried Anzio Turn black on their winter set up? I 'm stuck between that and Sport Tuning T3 Machine for AW 135i.

I haven't had too much experience with either of these brands. What made you pick these over other more well known brands?

Do you know what offsets they come in?

Well 17" wheels will not work on your 135i. The wheels will hit your brakes. I suggest an 18x8.5 all round fitment with around a 45 offset.

The most popular set up for your 135i are the Apex ARC-8 and EC-7 Wheels.

here is a photo of my 135i with apex arc-8 wheels.

That's pure sexiness man! Really? I didn't find any good looking 18's in Tirerack, but I'll keep looking.

Check out my site Nitrous Garage. We have a huge selection. PM me if you have any questions about fitment on any of them.

I have two sets of 17x8" rims on the 135i. No problems with brake clearance.

I just picked the ones that tirerack say are compatible and they have been great.

You will want the offset of about ET40 to ET45.

Really? I didn't know they would fit. Your 135i in Sydney has the BMW Performance BBK correct?

The brakes are stock 135i calipers with painted grey finish. As far as I know the BMW "Performance" brakes are exactly the same external dimensions.

Thanks man! The offset is 42.

So, I shouldn't have any problems with the 17 right? Tirerack said it's a recommended OE size.

In my case I took faith in Tirerack's advise on their shop website. They came up in search results for the 135i as a recommended size. If you are worried about it (and want to cover yourself against any remotely possible issues) why not send an email to confirm fitment for 135i. Also you could post on the other sticky thread at the top of the forum about "17" winter wheels". There's quite a lot of 17" wheels that work on 135i. I use them for summer tires as they are comfortable and practical.

The Anzio Turn is a very well built wheel and the looks are fantastic. They have been very popular.

Anyone telling you that 17" wheels won't fit a 135i is woefully misinformed.
