Will 2-series style 461m fit on 135i?

Hi, I'm looking to go back to a stock look and came across a square setup, style 461m wheels off a 2-series.

Will these fit a 135i?

They are 18x7.5J ET45 all around.

They come with 225/40 all around, but I want to put my original tires 215/45 on the front, and 245/35 on the rear.

Thanks in advance!

I think the M double spoke 461 wheels are:

Front axle: 7.5J / rear axle: 8J and have offsets of...
Front: 45 / Rear: 52


The wheels on a 135i are...

Front alloy wheels: 18x7.5" ET49
and..

Rear alloy wheels: 18x8.5" ET52

So you might need a 5mm wheel spacer for the front 2er wheels. But I am no wheel expert... maybe someone else will chime in. ?

I don't know why you would want less wider rear wheels though.

Wheel offsets work the opposite. 18x7.5 et 45 is equivalent to 18X7.5 et 49 with a 4mm spacer.

So basically the front wheel will stick out 4mm compared to oem 135i wheels and the rear wheels will be 6mm closer to the car.

Thanks.. confirmed they are 18x7.5" ET49 and..18x8.5" ET52. So, if I get, say 10mm spacers for the rear (this would essentially make it 4mm further out than stock), it would probably look just fine.

I think they actually look pretty good...

18x7.5 ET45 with a 5mm spacer would push the wheel out to a final offset of ET40. Lower offsets push the wheel out. Higher offsets pull the wheel in. Spacers will always lower the offset/push the wheel out.

Regardless, this is easy fitment.

Also, the correct size would be 215/40, not 215/45, OP.

Wlltheyfit.com is a great source for calculating fitment.

They should work just fine. Adding a 4mm spacer to the rear will definitely make it look better but is not required.
