F10 to-G30 OE wheel swap project complete. How does it look

I swapped my F10 wheels out for the 2017G30 OE Wheels. Adjusting the hub size & bolt pattern via custom spacer/adapter from a machine shop. Since I was going for just an updated OE look & not a wider stance, I am not 100% sold just yet. How do they look??

Bolt Pattern
Wheel facing = G30 (5 x 112mm)
Car/hub facing = F10 (5 x 120mm)

Bore size
wheel facing bore size lip/flange reduced to fit the 66.6mm to maintain a hubcentric fit

19x9 ET44 w 17mm spacers

No signs of rubbing, but I've only driven a "tame" 10-15 miles...

Looks good. Did you have to use custom nuts to secure the wheels? From the pics, I can't see how you could use the stock bolts. Also, looking at the side profile, you might be OK if you want to lower your ride. Congrats on being the first person I've seen to use these F10 / G30 wheel adapters.

Yea, No stock bolts. the adapter changed the config to requiring a nut. They sent me lug nuts for the adapter but since this machine shop focuses primarily on truck & tractor adapters they are way to f'ing long. I have some on order from ECS & Amazon, will keep the ones I like the best...

I wasn't going to say, but I agree that they do seem to stick out a bit. Since they are black, they don't really show up that much. I'm still impressed that you found a solution to retrofit wheels from a newer model BMW onto our F10s.

Cheers!
