Hi guys, i'm brand new to the forum and BMW ownership!

I'm picking up an E88 on Friday and i want to get some new wheels to fit immediately (so my fiance doesnt think ive bought some on top of just paying for the car - she hates cars)

I'm trying to think out the box in terms of wheels and i've found some potentials.

Apparently the X3 e83 style 143 should fit with 235/40/18 tyres.

Only concern i have is that theyre M14 bolts. I believe its M12 on the e88? The cup head on the bolt is the exact same width, as is the CB so they should fit, right?

Cheers in advance!

They're both 60 degrees, but Being an M14 bolt, I want to make pretty sure the cones are the same diameter.

The cone could be larger, leaving you with little overlap with a smaller M12 bolt?
