Wheel swap help

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a 318 convertible with the standard 16" style 45 alloys with 205/55/16 tyres. I am wanting to fit the MV2 18" staggered wheels with 225/40/18 on front and 255/35/18 on rear. A couple of questions

1, will this affect the speedo reading by any discrepancy, if so by how much
2, will they fit straight on without any problems
3, I have heard that they may need longer wheel bolt, is this correct
4, Any other issues I may encounter

Advice greatly appreciated

1. No, the diameter will be very similar. 

2. Yes, no problems at all. 

3. Longer bolts won’t be needed unless you’re fitting spacers as well. 

4. Should be all good 👍
