Some say "Yes", some say "No".

Maybe contact trebordelk and ask him --- he says they worked, on his '75.

If your car isn't super-low / slammed, and you don't use super-wide tires (205's), they will probably fit. But it's hard to say --- some people say there's more clearance on the late cars at the back, but I don't know why that would be.

I tried it on my 72 tii (a set of 6") and the car wouldn't move. I think you can machine them or shim them to make them work, but it didn't occur to me back then

Can you explain in a little more detail?

Did you have some sort of interference with the calipers or something?

Strange that there are other 2002's out there on these wheels --- why would yours not be able to move?

I had mucho rubbing in the rear on my car lowered with H&R springs. Up front no problem with the 6" wheels, other than the fact that I needed a thin spacer to clear my big brakes. The offset is not ideal for an 02.

The tires were 195/60/13 all around.

If I remember right it was the same as Kris in Toronto, rubbing in the back and didn't clear my big brake conversion in the front. I just remember the car wouldn't move. It was lowered a 1".

    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
