A single front type 259 wheel

Post by sapphireblack » Wed Sep 14, 2022 2:35 pm

After an enforced change of plans, I need a single wheel to complete a square set.

Any condition really, in need of a refurb but not mullered or welded.

If you have one, know of one or see one for sale, please get in touch 🙂

Yes I've seen that one and another on eBay, but at the asking prices plus £80 to refurb it, for a colour change, its way too expensive.

The one I have on route was £150 delivered.

I thought there was a centre bore difference between E70 & 71?

In my experience many sellers assume X5 and X6 wheels are all fully interchangeable, whereas we know they're not.
I'll probably use off the shelf 72.6 /15mm spacers on the rear with spigot rings on the wheels. I'm also waiting on a confirmed quote to make one piece spacers with spigots to allow the 74.1 wheels to fit the 72.6 hub. Estimated cost circa £60, so not vastly more cost. I have to measure the hubs carefully when I return to the UK.

It occurs to me it could be wasted effort and expense with milder winters for the foreseeable. But I already have the BMW approved winter tyres and 3 of 4 wheels.

I concluded the 285 tyre on the 11" rear rim though OK just doesn't look quite right. When the second set of type 300 rims are freed up I'll buy some all season rubber which in time will be all I am likely to need 🤞
