Well I am thinking about using my E60's winter setup on my F10 550i xDrive when it arrives (plus a mobility kit). The tire sizes fit (245/45/18). But will the 123s fit the F10??

Fairly certain they are different offsets. I'll check on it for you...


Looked up on realoem.com - no go. Your 123s are ET20, the F10 wheels are ~ET33. They will most likely rub badly, because the 123s will stick out about half an inch more than the stockers. Might end up working okay, but it's a small chance. I'd say, you can try it - if it rubs, you know what to do

I have Style 118 (8x18 ET 14) 245/45 R18 rims/tires that were for a 650i (E63,64), and wanted to put them on my F11 for the winter. My F11 currently has the entry-level Style 236 (8x17 ET 30) with 225/55 R17.

The offset difference is +16 which means they stick out 16mm more than the current tires I have and are also 20mm wider.

I went to the garage and the mechanics put them on. At the back they do not stick out, but at the front they do a little (the tread not the rim), which would mean they would fail an inspection here (every 4 years). They do not touch or rub anywhere even at full lock.

Though the garage said they are absolutely fine, they did not test at speed (yet), and to be clear I am still mulling over whether to put them on or not. Just my 2-cents worth.

Actually the OEM F10 18" wheels are F and R 8x18" ET30, tires 245/45.

The 19" and 20" F10 OEM wheels are F 8,5x19" or 20" ET's33 and R 9,0x19" or 20" ET's44.
The 19" tires are F 245/40 and R 275/35 and for the 20" wheels F 245/35 and R 275/30.

So there's pretty much room for the tires.

The set that sdg1871 has just might fit, go for a try before you sell the winters.

PS. The xDrive may have different ET's, I don't know.

I don't know what you were trying to achieve with this post, since it says exactly what I had said earlier, but more vaguely

Well, how can I write more simple about the F10 OEM wheel ET's and tire sizes

To get some disarray for you dear Russian, the Style 123 BMW OEM wheels are ET20, but for the E60x they are ET43... Check out the facts!

I do not know if my 123s came off of an x or a non-x. Looks like I will need to try them on my F10 and see how things fit.

As your current car is a '09 E60 you must have the ET 20 123's.(Did have them on my '04 and '05 E60's.)
How many months do you use the winters?

I will put on my winters on this friday and change them back for summers in early April, about four months.
But the damned 18" winters are a must - I hate the winter.
