Maserati Bi-Turbo Wheels 14x6.5" ET6 *Made In Italy*

Recommended Posts

I have a very nice set of of genuine Maserati "Bi-Turbo" 14" wheels. They are the perfect size wheels for a "2002". The 3rd wheel has 1 very minor nick and the 4th wheel has 3 small nicks. They have a 2-tone gray/silver finish. All wheels are straight and true with no bends.  The genuine Maserati wheel caps are still installed, but covered by metal BMW stickers. They look similar to the "Bottle Top" and BMW Dealer option wheels made in Italy. I am open to offers, but you will have to pay actual shipping cost. No tires are included, and will be removed before shipment.

These are not 4x100 PCD rims unless they have already been re-drilled to such dimensions.  They're likely 4x98.  Yes, they will fit over an '02's wheel studs and I have never personally read a report about a death directly caused by forcing a 4x98 rim onto 4x100 studs, but any one purchasing them should be aware that such usage is contrary to the manufacturer's usage instructions.

This is true, I saw a pair on vwvortex a couple of weeks ago. To use them you would need to purchase some "wobble nuts."

True, but...."wobble nuts" and "wobble bolts" (formally known as PCD variation nuts and bolts) are not approved by any reputable rim manufacturers, if by any rim manufacturers at all, and thus are virtually as controversial as using stock lug nuts or lug bolts.  Even the common name, wobble nuts, is less than confidence inspiring.  And ask the German TUV if it's okay to use wobble nuts to "correct" your wrong-PCD rims!

 

A reputable full-service rim repair shop can re-drill the rims, to the correct 4x100, for $50 or less each.  So, yes, I know a lot of wobble nuts and bolts get sold, to car owners who place a lower value on safety.  But as mom used to say, "If your friends jump off a cliff, are you going to jump off the cliff, too?"  (Maybe that wasn't my mom, but it was SOMEONE'S mom.)

I'm just saying, that's what peeps do ("everybody's doin' it, man"). I don't know enough on the subject nor would I want to run them or even re-drill wheels.

Yep, and I seem to see, read, or hear about wobble nuts a lot in the VW and Fiat crowds, where 4x98 and 4x100 rims appear to swap back and forth a lot!

 

I also believe that many users of wrong-PCD rims don't even realize they're using wrong-PCD rims!

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
