    I have 18", 5x120, Width 8.0", Offset +38, Centerbore 64.1 wheels. Will they fit on Model 3?

    These came from my 2004 TL manual. They clear big Brembo calipers. These were on a FWD.

    Any expert help?

    If they are aftermarket wheels they might have been stamped with maximum weights for different bolt patterns. Check them to see that they also have a stamp for 5x114. Also measure what the true bolt pattern of the actual wheel is. Google is your friend to help find out how to measure.

    Yes, look at eBay, there’s also places that customizes, maybe slightly more expensive but you can specify the center bore
    Forgot the name, but on tmoc forum, there’s a long thread on spacers, some shop in Vegas customizes.

    Just sell those wheels and put that money towards a set with the proper bolt pattern and offset.
