Will winter wheels from E70 rims fit 2018 F15 hubs?

Fri Aug 23, 2019 4:34 pm

Greetings,

I've sold my 2007 E70 SE and now have a 2018 F15 SE which has 255 x 50 x19 wheels and tyres all round . I have a set of winter wheels I used with the E70 - 255x50x19 fronts and 285 x45 x19 rears fitted with Vredestein Wintrac extreme 107W and 111W tyres respectively. Does anyone know if these wheels will fit onto the F15 without machining? If not I'll have them for sale...

Hi Graeme
The should fit may need arch extensions but will need Rdci valves about £90 each .

Thanks Stephen,

I hadn't thought about changing the valves - they valves are different as the F15 does indeed have a more complex pressure monitoring system than the E70. The cost of them and fitting flared arches on the rear is leading me to an alternative solution - have winter tyres fitted to the existing wheels!

Accordingly I'll be selling the wheels and tyres for the E70 but I need to find out how to do this on the forum. If anyone is interested please send me a PM.
Best wishes,

Graeme

Greeting everyone,

After exploring the possibility of adapting these wheels to fit an F15 with tyre pressure monitoring, I've decided to simply sell them as they are. The high cost of four valves + monitoring sensors is one factor and obtaining spigots to adapt the hubs is the other. The advert is in the Buy and Sell section.

Best wishes,

Graeme
