Hub Core Question

Hey there guys. I have a quick question for a buddy of mine. He is getting wheels for his 335i, and it is off a is300. The hub core on the is300 is 60.1 but the bmw one is 72.65. I have searched and searched but i guess it isint needed from going to a smaller hub core to a bigger one. It's all 72.65 to 60.1. I didnt find anything 60.1 to 72.65. Can anyone help me out ? Thank you.

Well for starters the bolt pattern is different from lexus to BMW so those wheels won't work.

To answer your question, if the hub on the wheel is bigger than the hub on the car than you can simply use a hubring (little piece of metal that makes up the gap). If the hub bore is smaller on the wheel than on the car then the wheels will need to be machined, I've heard this is about a $100 cost for 4 wheels.
