I just picked up a 85' 535i up for parts and it had 15'' rims, with the little bmw plastic thing over the lugnuts. and the spare was a regular 14'' bottle cap.

Do you think he put the 15''s on or the car just came with a smaller spare?

thanks,

Matt

Well, my car came with the 15's all around, and one in the spare. So I'm assuming that 535 came with 14's all around. Don't know for sure though. I dunno much about E28's.

They originally came with metric size rims and tires. Metric tires are hard to come by, expensive and not very good. You are better off not using the original rims.

My rims on the 635csi are metric.. the 16'' TRX's .... so all 4 rims and the spare are not origional then. Im not to worried about it, the car wont be drivin, just stripped whenever I need anything. On mye28.com a member there said he thinks that the TRX's were on the car origionally.

thanks for the input!
