Question on upgrading 17" 414s to 18" 397s on 320d Luxury

Hi all,

New to the forum. Buying an F30 320d Mojave/Havana Luxury Line in India, and the posts here have been of great help.

The 320d Luxury here come with Multi Spoke 414 wheels. Not a fan of them, and thinking of swapping them with Double Spoke 397s.

My dealer can't do it as part of the build (very low customization options here in India, especially for the price) but if I wanted to buy them and get it done after, I just wanted to know if there would be any issue with the brake sizes, etc that would be a problem.

I know the 320d isn't offered in the US, but if anyone/an international member has any input, that would be great.

Thanks!

All of the F30 wheels will fit your 320d.

Unhappy F30 India, tyre change, please help!

F30India, did you get your f30 tyres changed? If so, could you share me the details. I also face this same dilemma, i have booked a f30 luxury line with 225/50r17 that has 414 spokes. Run-flat is a big dud for indian conditions, want to change to regular tubeless. I am keen on michelin tyres, but cant find the same size, can i expand them to 18" like on the sport line or stick to same size(if so, which one)
Help from others also will be appreciated. Thanks in advance

Hey sataurus,

I booked the car late last week so I don't have as much info yet. The sales guy told me that he could get the rims changed (at a cost of course, and I will need to figure out a way to get rid of the 17" 414s and tyres). So i'm going ahead with the luxury line, and getting 18" 397s on it.

I heard a lot about the run-flat issues, etc and asked about switching to regular tubeless. But from what I've read here and been told by the BMW guys, the new run-flats are a lot better comfort-wise and reliability over the previous gen. So decided to stick with the 18" run flats that would come with the new rims. Pricey, but saves some hassle that way.

I'll know what the deal is sometime this week once they get back to me with the details. I'll let you know.

Hey sataurus,

Sorry, it's been a while, lots of stuff going on.

I ended up ordering the 18" 397 through a friend who will be importing it along with 18" runflats that are specified for the F30. Taking delivery of the car in a week and the wheels should be here by then, so will be fitting them on before it rolls out of the dealership. Only thing is to find a buyer for the brand new 414s coming off the car or getting the dealer to take them back.

PM me if you want share contact info and/or want more info on the price or details on how I went about it, etc
