Default gs300 with bmw wheels.

hi i have a question. i seen the posts up for the gs300 with 745i rims on them but didnt get a good answer from the posts. if i redrill the 745i rims will i still need a spacer? if so what size spacer?

Also if i was to get an adapter does it really have to be 19mm? i dont want them to stick out like crazy but i do have UAS airbags

please let me a good answer

I am far from an expert on this subject but if you use an adapter it needs to be thick enough that the wheel does not make contact with the original studs. If the original studs are 19mm the you will probably need a equivalent adapter.

Wheels and tires are balanced from the center, not the lug holes so they should balance fine. As long as whatever shop does the re-drill for you knows what they are doing you should not have any issues.

Redrill you don't need adapters unless you meant Spacers? Depending how flush you want it to look or how far you want it to stick out. I'm using adapters from 5x114.3 to 5x120 from Adaptec since I'm not redrilling. Front is 20mm and rear is 25mm. I'm running 20x9/10.5 +25 all around on bags. Fender work done? Yes. Hope this helps. And as far as stock style 95 wheels, redrill and slap them on. I had the style 95 redrilled And slapped them on with no issues. Oh yea, hub rings is a must. For me at least.

Like said above, you wont need a spacer if your wheels are redrilled unless you want the wheels to stick out more, but then again getting adapters in the first place might be cheaper. As far as having the wheels cleared from studs, I believe a 19mm spacer will do.
