OMGaZ28,
GM and BMW are not the same company, nor are they in the same country and do not use the same units of measure. GM uses Standard American units like inches and feet, where as BMW being in Germany uses Metric units (such as millimeters and meters) like most everyone else. It is mere coincidence that there lug patterns are similar. This is why they possibly didn't collaborate when they were initially designing their wheels, to ensure we could use BMW wheels on GMs and vice versa.
i never said they were the same company, i just ment that GM uses 5x120 also.

I dont see a reason for name calling. And in the end everyone is going to do whatever they want regardless of what anybody else says.

You can get them at 1010tires, the ones I have came with the wheels. They fit too tight in the wheel and when I tried to take the wheels off it was a PITA, so I need to get smaller OD rings. Trying to get the tire off on the side of the road after a flat would not be fun with those rings installed!

Not to be an ***..... but .7mm is the same thickness(width) as a .7mm lead for a .7mm mechanical pencil.


As you said though... It is minuscule!

Sorry if you got offended, but I just call it like I see it. And you are wrong BTW. a 120mm bolt pattern will NOT bow the studs because there is ample clearance on the bolt holes in the wheel. Have you ever tried to mount a 5x120mm wheel on a 5x4.75" hub? I bet not because if you had, then you would know better. I also bet that you would not be able to tell the difference in the 2 patterns if you had both in front of you... Even if you had a tape measure! Again, not trying to offend you man, so dont take it like that. I'm just sayin that there is virtually no difference and it should not be of concern at all.

Tape measure no... micrometer.... would be another story.

However there is probably enough "play" in the bolt holes that the .7mm difference doesn't really matter.

Default Wheels dont fit????? Help

So i got some 5 by 120 aftermarket wheels for my bmw it even says bolt pattern on the back of the wheel and i was told that my bolt pattern is the same so i looked it up and sure enough it was. I can fully install 3 lug studs then the other two are on the outside of the hole in the wheel tried loosening other 3 almost all the way out and still cannot get other two started. ive been working on cars for 15 years and never had this problem. So is the wheel made wrong?? Or am i doin something wrong that i dont know... Lol!!!
