Hi,

Has anybody considered using their winter wheels from their previous 3- or 4-series on their i4? I've got a two-year old set of mat black 18" 405M winter wheels. They're not that pretty, but they shouldn't be. I don't care if they get messed up with grime in the winter. ❄

Instead of selling them and getting new winter wheels for the i4, I wonder if I could just use them on the i4.

Regards, Vincent.

I will most likely be selling my 335i convertible and I've thought about the same thing. As I have winter tires on black rims, they are 225/40/18. I'm thinking they should fit.

Yesterday I asked at the dealership; they told me the winter wheels from an F36 Gran Coupe won't fit the i4.

That means I'll sell those, but I'm not sure whether I'll get new ones. Dutch winters are not very extreme, I'm not driving to the Alps to go snowboarding anymore and the i4 M50 has AWD, which should help for those few days that I'll still be driving in the snow. Hmm..

Same dilemma here. One thing concerns me though and that’s the weight. On those rare occasions that our country is covered in snow summer tyres may not be able to handle those kilograms in case of an emergency stop, even at low speeds. In those cases winter tyres could make the difference between “kidneys or no kidneys”.

Im keeping my original 662M 18" from my G30 to see if they fit the i4, in that case i will use them as winter wheels.
My biggest worry is that the front breake discs wont fit as i went with the 370mm ones, my G30 has the standard msport breakes, and there is not much room.

The offset is different, but that should be fixable with spacers.

5x112 66,6 8x18 ET30 9x18 ET44

Hoping to fit 245/45 on the 9" rears that currently have 275 found some sheet that said it should be possible.

Fingers crossed.. 😄

How did this go?

I'm in a similar situation. I have a good set of 796M 18" winter wheels/tires for my G20.
Specs are...
Wheel Sizes: Front: 7.5Jx18 ET25 | Rear: 8.5Jx18 ET40
Tire Sizes: Front: 225/45R18 95Y XL | Rear: 255/40R18 99Y XL

I have an eDrive40 on order which should hopefully arrive in late August. I'd love to use these winter wheels on the i4. I believe it's the same 5x112 bolt pattern, but the offset is different, I think. My dealer wasn't sure they'd work since the 796M's aren't on the "official" list of winter wheel/tires for the i4.
