I recently damaged a front wheel (Classic Alpina style) and its away for repair - this may or may not be successful so I'm looking for a replacement as well.

My own wheel has a different part number (36 11 218) compared to the Alpina Parts catalogue (36 11 204) and it's an 8J x 19 where the parts catalogue suggests 8.5J x 19.

All that aside, I was expecting to see an ET marking on the wheel to indicate offset but it says e34 - is this indicating a 34mm offset?

The other markings are RD 8Jx19 EH2+410 KBA 46773 and it runs 245/35 ZR19 tyres.

I know that the e34 is kind of obviously the offset marking but just want to be sure. Also any other info on these wheels will be much appreciated.

In the short term I'm probably going to have to buy a regular BMW wheel to keep mobile until I can find a proper replacement. I'll put an ad on the wanted section later.

Thanks,

Hi, the 36 11 204 8.5J x 19 is for the D3MT, pretty sure the BT has different size, cheers Rob

I'm going from memory as my D3BT has now gone but I think it had 8J on the front with 245 width tyres and 8.5J on the rear with 265 width.

The D3 MT v BT have different wheels, yours being a BT will have the 8 x 19 wheel.

Safest bet is to go off the part number and replace it with a like for like.
