Gazz the newb here, or is that noob? There is a set of Lemmer 13" 5.5" steel wheels for sale near me. They are date stamped 10 78. I think these will fit however I have heard that there may be an issue. Is it clearance, offset, what? I tried to search but gave up after 1/2 hour of reading, you can imagine how many threads are related to wheels. Thanks for any help.

The Wheels database shows a 4.5” and a 5” Lemmerz wheel. Is there an ET number stamped on the set you are looking at?

Photos?

 

If it is a set of BMW rims, it’s likely a set of e21 rims. This matches both the date, October 1978, and the size, 5 1/2” x 13”. If that’s what they are, the offset should be ET18.

 

Lots of ‘02 owners run this size and offset of rim with 185/70 tires and report no rubbing issues whatsoever. Other owners have tried this size rim with 185/70 tires and reported rubbing issues. BMW never promoted or offered this combination of rim size and tire on the ‘02, except on the factory turbo, which had fender flares.

Thanks for the response Steve,

 

The offset is ET 18. I will refurbish them in the style of Turbo wheels. Do you if there is colour guide for matching the wheels?

Gary,

 

I wish I could simply provide a couple RAL color codes, but I can’t. The silver on the barrels is the same “wheel silver” used on lots and lots of silver rims. The gray is... well, actually, there’s a thread in the turbo forum about the color. Perhaps that has more detail.

Steve

Gazz... your wheel picture shows the lip is bent just near the wheel weight.  Not horrible, but perhaps a bargaining chip in negotiations :)

 

 

Here's the 5.5" Turbo wheel in the database

I forgot that was in there, Ed! And I was thinking, “Why isn’t the basic e21 rim in the database?” ?

 

Learn something every day!

 

Best regards,

 

Steve

    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
