wheel center bore

Recommended Posts

Ok so Ive found some wheels, not exactly period correct but dam light and great price. But problem is they are build for an E30 first then fit a E21 and 2002. 15x7" with a 25ET BUT if they are built for an E30 the center bore will be too large. There fore I will have to run locators. This is a problem as they have to be custom made on a metal lathe!

MY MAIN QUESTION do I have to run center locators on my 2002 if the center bore of the wheels I want to run is for an E30???

IF so do they make locators over there in the US that are well priced?

Forgive the stupid question, but is it that the stock wheels are not hubcentric, or does the hub not protrude enough for hubcentric mounting? So the wheels mount lugcentric, and any size center bore can be used? Is there some small protrusion that would interfere with a very small bore wheel, and anything larger than the normal 57.1mm can be used, or is there no protrusion at all?

The hubs do stick out, but they are relatively small, (maybe 45 mm or so)

and are unmachined... so therefore, the hubs...

(wait for it)

are not hubcentric!

    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
