    I bought a set of these.

    They fit and centre on the disks perfectly. But they do not fit my genuine Z3 wheels? I've tried fitting them onto the wheels themselves and there seems to be a lip on the inner hub of the wheel that prevents the spacer slotting into it?

    Also tried on an M3 alloy. Same story.

    Anyone else had this?

    When you order such accessories you need to state exactly what vehicle it is for and should know that the centre bore is correct for the wheel.

    Get on the phone/message them and see if they can swap them

    But it says it fits all bmw's. All. As in Z3's and M3's. :( They fit the car, just not the wheels.

    Will get in touch and see what they say.

    Those hub sizes are for owners wishing to fit e39 wheels to the like of e31/e32/e34/e38/e60 etc

    I'm sure they will swap them for you but I think the smallest genuine hubcentric spacer is 12mm?

    as above, they'll only fit if you put a E39 wheel on them. you need a 72.6 spacer, not one with a 74.1mm outer lip.
