Just bought ATS
I have winter wheels/ tires from my previous BMW Size 245/50 on 18 in.
BMW rims.

Can these be used on my ATS?


Thanks

No, there is no compatability between BMW and the ATS. Look here for wheels for the ATS:

you will find that the aftermarket vendors have very limited support for a 5x115 bolt pattern.

well... that depends what type of wheel you're looking for.

What about the tires on any 18 in rims. They are 245/50

way too tall.
the ats tires are 25" diameter.
a tire in 245/50r18 will be around 27.5" in diameter. twish is morethan 10% difference.

114.3 x 5 will fit just fine.

Mine are smooth as silk rolling on MICHELIN PSPs

I was wondering about the 114.3 as well
Anybody know if there is a wheel hub to change bolt pattern?

It appears they will go over the studs but is it safe? I don't have mine yet so don't know but if the lug nuts are tapered they won't seat right without flexing the studs and will make for false torque readings. And if the lug nuts are NOT tapered but the wheel isn't hub centric, it could end up off center. I need to find some writeup on using wheels with a different circle than the studs.

114.3 is fine. With hub rings... 5000 kms and counting. No wobble no safety issues. My wheel guys have been fitting my cars for 20 years plus. I trust them

i will most likely end up getting a set of adapters 5x115 to 5x114.3
unless i can find a set of wheels with the correct bolt pattern that i like :)

or, you could use wobble bolts to mount a set of 4x114.3 wheels.
