330e 20" fitting guide

Hi!

I'm looking at fitting Borbet BY 20" rims on my G20 330e and I'm trying to find a good fit. I saw the Borbet rims first in a previous post on Bimmerpost by @joca and thought they might be a cheaper alternative than the M795 rims.

Post:

But I haven't been able to get an answer on what specs he has on the rims. I'm looking at:

Front: 8x20 5x112 ET25
Back: 9x20 5x112 ET45

Do you guys think this is a good fit or do you have any suggestions or input?

Thank you!

Love the way these look and looked at potentially buying these same ones myself. I want a wider 10" tire in the rear tho and don't think these are offered that wide.

I agree, I think they look great! I don't believe they make them in 10.0x20 either. But for me I'm happy with 9.0x20 in the rear I believe the specs I wrote should be a good fit (but not if you want wider back rims, of course).

I think it would be better to take 9jx20 ET35 for rear axle, because OEM is 8,5jx20 ET40.

You sure? I guess it all depends on if the rim should poke out or be closer to the suspension. I have no idea hos close it is to the suspension with stock rims. Here's pictures of the difference from stock rim to between ET35 (left picture) and ET45 (right picture). But if I get ET45 I guess I could always put on spacers if needed.

9jx20 ET45 will be inside wheel arch. For my taste when wheel stands flush with the arch. And I don't like spacers. In my opinion spacers are not safe.

On a 9" you should go for et35. Its 11.25mm further out ant it will be perfect.

Nice! There's a set of Borbets somebody else posted pics of and it looked amazing. Just wish I had the option to get them at 10" wide in the rears. Kinda a deal breaker for me, love the fat back tire look

I'm looking forward to seeing them on! It wasn't the Borbets in the link in my first post you're talking about? Yeah, fat back tires looks great. But it's a company car so it just felt better with a more "standard" size in my case.

No, I'm in Sweden Borbet is a German manufacturer so they're quite easy to get a hold of here.

Not yet, still waiting on them. The latest information I got from the reseller was the 12th of March saying they're waiting on a more exact shipping time for the back rims (9x20 ET35). No further update so far I'm afraid. But I'll keep you guys posted as soon as I get any information!

Top pro sports car race teams run wheel spacers, sometimes > 25 mm thick, in 24 hour endurance races. So Iím curious to know why do you consider them unsafe?

Alright. I'm wondering if it would be possible to run 9x20 ET35 in the front as well?

I'm not sure to be honest. But I can take a few pictures as soon as they're on and that could give you a clue on how ET35s in the front would fit (even though I'm going with 8xET25 in the front). But I'm assuming you're thinking 8J width in the front? I don't believe 9J width would be a good fit.

You could always see the difference on this website: https://www.willtheyfit.com/.

Update: Rear rims (9x20 ET35 5x112) are backordered at least 6 weeks from now according to reseller who spoke to Borbet. So I guess we'll be waiting for a while longer to see them on
