5*114 won't fit. 15mm spacers is pretty aggressive. I'd stick with the offsets you posted for stated and then adjust after you have them on the car and get a feel for how much space you have.

Adapters usually start at around 15mm.. so I figured that would be a good starting point. Any thoughts then on what adapters to get?

And what tire sizes as well?

Not sure what you mean by 'adapter'. Spacers are available starting at 3 mm. I'm suggesting you get 5x120 et 45s to start with. Pick your tire size and then after it's installed determine what size spacer you want if any. Tire size depends on what you are trying to accomplish. I'm running 235/40f and 245/35r. I'll be the first to admit that this is not the most popular setup but I did it as it got me very close to square with the same 18x8.5 wheels all around. My offset is 45 and I have no spacers (and no rubbing). Again, this is a matter of taste and my priority has not been to maximize flushness on the car.

Adapters are a sort of offset spacer that change the bolt pattern from hub to wheel. a 5x120 to 5x114.3 adaptor would allow a BMW car to run Asian wheels.

I figured but was playing ignorant in hopes that I could discourage this. The TE-37s are beautiful and pricey wheels so I understand the desire to use them on the 1 if you already own them. A 15mm offset is pretty aggressive on top of a 45 base. The net offset of 30 is too much for the 1 unless you dramatically stretch, roll,... If your going to go to this much effort and cost I would recommend that you sell the TE-37s and get something with the proper bolt pattern and offset to start with.

That totally sucks.

SE37A's weigh in at 16lbs, and I dig the look. I'm sure I can find something comparable in another brand that is already 5x120.

Thanks for the advice thus far

I may be a bit biased but if you like 5 spokes instead of the 6 on the TE-37 you could get some Forgestar CF5s or VMR V705s. If you don't like the available colors you could have them refinished for about $125/wheel. That's what I did to my CF5s. The Forgstars are relatively light and you can order them to an exact offset that you want down to the mm.

You could also buy a TE37 again too as it is available in a 1 series fitment TE37TT-PM.

1m conversion

hey guys,

iev been searching this thread and couldn't find the right fitment for my car. im currently running a 2008 135i. my latest mods have been the full 1m conversion.. ie. rearsubframe with M diff, rear suspension/controls arms,brakes... front control arms,upper/lower, suspension brakes and steering rack..ie.. all 1m parts have been added.( no 1M cosmetic changes have been made to the exterior of the car)

my current rims are the stock 18inch 135i. but the bigger M brakes are now rubbing to the rim and I need to upgrade to 19inch rims asap.

does anyone know the exact rims specs for this kind of setup, bearing in mind the additional width added from the M parts.

thanks
Haitham

Any rubbing? Rolled fenders?

I have to drive the car very gingerly to avoid it. This fiasco has also made me realize the previous owner rolled the fenders already (NOW I understand why it wasn't a CPO!). Even with the fender roll, I'm still rubbing

I wish there was something else I can do, because they look flippin' fantastic, like a Hot Wheels car!

front:
8 x 18 offset 34
225 40 18

rear
8.5 x 18 offset 37
245 35 18
That would be me. Looks like you have the sport package though. I don't have that. I recently put 225's in the rear with no rubbing whatsoever.

I didn't know that the sport package had a lower suspension until literally today when I saw a non-sport parked next to mine

Oh well. Enjoy those beautiful wheels!

After weeks of searching for wheels and countless reviews of this thread, I finally ordered some wheels! I didn't know it would be so difficult to find something to fit the 135i. I went with Ace SL-M's wrapped in Michelin Super Sports. I haven't seen any on here yet, hope everything fits haha. Pics to come soon

Its tight to the fender on the back. Front is fine.

That's an OZ fitment, right?

You can check. That setup is most definitely in this thread.

but yes. You'll rub the rear fenders. Front are fine and I'd recommend stepping up a 225 there.
