Will the tyre rub my 118i?

Hi guyz,

I am a newbie to this forum. Nice to meet you all here and I am from Hong Kong.

Here is my question:
I am driving a 118i LCI version. Will a tyre which is 17-inch size. 8J with 225 tyre(Double spoke 103) fit my car? Will the tyre rub my car? Coz it is very difficult to get a 17-inch 7.5J for my car.

Thanks a lot!

I looked in my German BMW wheel guide & accesory book: part number 01212152040K You can pick one up at any dealership.

BMW does not offer ANY 17" wheel wider than 7.5 inches on the front axle. Most are 7 inches wide for the front. AND... BMW only uses a 205 tire on the front.

IF you really want such wide wheels.... you will most likely have to test fit the wheels and tires. Because every car has some difference to how BOG a tire they can take. Sometimes such a hige tire/wheel will only fit on one side of the car and NOT the other side - requiring some body shop mods to make the wheel work!

Why not just get some 7jx17's for the front and 7.5Jx17's for the rear? That is what BMW offers.

Servus,

i got some Styling103 8x17 ET47 (from the Z4) with 225... they fit without a Problem on my 130. No rubbing at all
They are just my Winter Setup but i "Testdrive" them with the Summer "Rubber"

Hi,

Just got a 17" Double Spoke (originally for Z4) with 225/45 RFT for my 118i LCI version. The offset is 49 and 8J for front and rare wheel. And it fit perfectly to my 1er without any rubbing. Just for your reference. At first I really want to get a 18" but I am so so so afraid that it may rub my car!

It is a second hand but still look great!

Thanks.
