- Does anybody know if any 3-series wheels, specifically E36, will fit
the E28? I know the bolt pattern is the same, but what about offset
and the center hole? Thanks.
- As far as I am aware 3 series wheels (any model) do not fit the E28.
I looked into this sortly after I bought my E28 528i because the
metric tyres were on there last legs. I was advised by BMW
specialists that wheels from an E34 five series and E24 six series
cars do fit. I do not believe wheels from a E39 will fit either.
In the end I purchased a full new set of metrics. The metric alloys
on the E28 just look better than the cross spoke design.
>As far as I am aware 3 series wheels (any model) do not fit theI'm certain you can use them with spacers, but lests no go down
that route. Just say NO!
>I was advised by BMW specialists that wheels from an E34 fiveAlso some of the 7 series wheels will fit.

I quite like the original E28 wheels but I wouldn't pay 130 quid
per tyre for any vehicle! It's made worse when you realise that
the metric tyres available are less effective and cause more
road noise than modern rubber.
Shop on eBay: I bought a near immaculate set of '95 7 series
wheels for not very much money and had tyres fitted, my 528i is
currently shod with 225/50/16s. Total cost was less than buying
2 metric tyres.
I also bought some very cheap imperial wheels for my 520i with
tyres also from eBay and that's running 215/45/17 on the rear
and 205/50/17 on the front the entire package was less than 150
quid including shipping.

- I have 1990 5 series wheels on my 1984 533i.
There is an identical 533 in my city, with the same
I think the wheels look great.
Here in the US, metric tires are VERY expensive.
