Default Will BMW 3 series wheels fit?

So I was messing around on s10 forum and I read a post saying that BMW 3 series would fit a 4x4. Is this true, or is it just a lie?

bmw has 5x120 bolt pattern vs our 5x120.7 bolt patter, they will physically fit but there's a potential for problems because of the bolt patterns not being exactly the same.

Oh. Well, I found some really nice ones, and I was just wondering because I wanted them. What sort of problems?

If you don't tighten them carefully they could be installed off center, which could lead to wheel wobbling, nuts working themselves loose, elongating of the holes on the wheels etc etc etc.


Best would be to use adapters, but people have used wheels with that bolt pattern without any. You just need to be really careful and know that there is a risk to doing it.

Ok... I was considering adaptors. It seems like the only cars that have the same bolt pattern as Blazers are old chevys, a few pontiacs, and a couple jags. I feel like most cars are 5x4.5.

I've used this site before when looking for rims, it gives some specs on the bolt pattern, hub bore, etc. My Bolt Pattern | A Bolt Pattern Chart for Selecting Custom Rims to Fit Your Car or Truck
