WTB single wheel for use as a spare



Looking for a full size wheel, with or without rubber to use as a spare for a road trip. E46 M3 fitment, size not an issue.

I've got a crappy, bent style 5 you can have for free. Even has a crappy tire on it.

E39 fitment - et20, 74.1 hub... I can even throw in a hub ring for coffee.

Kinda far away tho...

How badly is it bent and what is the size? I know I said size didn't matter but it should be 18" or 19" as I'm not sure if smaller will clear. Thanks.

Thanks a lot for the offer but if I'm going to ship across the country I might as well be positive it will work. I can't believe how hard it is to find a single wheel. Seems like there is nothing on the west coast

I have spare 17x7.5" steel rims. Not sure if it will clear the front brakes. If you're serious, I'll check for clearance on my E90 335i front brakes (probably comparable in size to the M3).

Sure, if you can verify fitment. I only need one though, you mention set.

I just finished checking and it does clear the brakes on the E90 335i, but just barely by a few mm. So, the big question is: who has bigger brakes? The E90 335i or the E46 m3. I used to have E46 330i brakes mounted on my E36 and the E90 335i brakes look noticeably bigger. IIRC, there was a bimmerforums debate about whether the E46 330i or the E46 M3 brakes were bigger and it turns out that that they're about the same diameter, but the M3 had thicker rotors (and therefore better heat dissipation ability).

As to your question, I actually have 3 steel rims. I bought a set of 4 a few years ago but only used one of them as a spare for certifying my E36. I'm planning to use 1 of the 3 as a spare for my E90 335i (with skinny 205 rubber) when I switch to non-runflat summer tires.
