You could use this opportunity to upgrade to 320i hubs and go with some vented rotors.

While the original poster did not specify, I'd wager he was struggling with a rear hub instead of front, so there would be no swapping 320i parts.

If this is correct (stuck rear hub) I'd suggest the splines on the stub axle are probably corroded as well, and you would be better off to replace both the hub & stub axle. Stub axle failures, where cracks initiate at the splines corrosion pitting, are fairly common. And the result is the rear wheel leaves the car while you're driving.

Sorry no help with spare parts for sale, but do take a close look at the splines & consider doing the complete repair with both parts.

I'm with John - 2 parts are a team here. DO NOT

replace just one of the two. The thing was seized and rusted

from over-heating, improper tightening, long term

running with poor lubrication, and neglect.

The splines on the stub axle mate very tightly

with the splines in the wheel hub. Replace just one

of the two and you'll either loose a wheel from

premature failure, or revisit the whole repair soon

because of wobbly wheelitus.

Any BMW dealer can supply you with new parts, the needed

bearing kit, and check here for the correct way to reassemble

the whole mess so you don't ruin the new bearings.
