Default Used wheels for Terrain? BMW?

Looking for winter rims or mags for the new GMC Terrain. We know that the bolt pattern for the Terrain and some other new GM vehicles is now 5x120mm. Most other cars on the market use 5x114.3mm or 4 bolts, making it difficult to find compatible wheels on the pre-owned market. Most universal 5 bolts aftermarket wheels are 5x100/5x114.3. This may sound like GM did it on purpose.

However BMW has been the only manufacturer to use 5x120mm wheels across all their lineup for a long time. There are a lot of used BMW wheels for sale out there on Kijiji for good prices. Also some newer Acura cars as well as Honda Oddysey and Pilot have this bolt pattern. There is a useful list for all cars here: www.fastwheels.ca/applications/app_guide_en.pdf

Having little experience in adapting wheels,
I'd like to know if anyone got success in installing BMW wheels on a Terrain? What hardware is necessary, as the lug nuts seems narrower and the hub center bore larger? Is it easy to find new lug bolts and replace them on the Terrain? How about hub rings? Would a 17x7.5" or 17x8" wheel fit on the Terrain, or would it collide with something? How about the offset?

Thanks

From reading other forums where guys have tried to mount BMW wheels onto other cars with the same bolt pattern, I believe some had issues with the center bore and needed a hubcentric ring to use that BMW wheel on non-bmw vehicles.

personally i wouldn't put BMW wheels on a GMC, i just think it would look weird. Also they're for winter so I would just go to the local automotive parts store and get some cheap black steel wheels and call it a day!

They may be a 5x120 bolt pattern, but the offset and center bore will likely be much, much different. Also, BMW rims are expensive. If you really must want an alloy rim, then purchase a set off TireRack.com. There are many, many nice options. I might want to replace my summer mags with a BBS CF rims, if I end up with superfluous amounts of money that I don't know what to do with. :-)

I found used BMW mags for 250$, 7.5" width, 40mm offset. Center bore is larger, so hub-centric rings are available. They fit perfectly on the car.

So im guessing you got them mounted on your Terrain? If so lets see some pic's! I was always curious of how BMW wheels would look on an American vehicle like the Terrain. Lets see!

I would be interested in some pictures too. I can get a handle on some BMW rims, mind you, I assume you would replace the center caps.

The offset can be a killer. I've got a GTO (late model) and it has the same 5x120 bolt pattern. I've seen plenty of people use BMW wheels on them, but the stock setup has an odd offset so it can make it difficult to find a wheel that will fit nice without some sort of rubbing issue. The Terrain shouldn't have fender clearance problems, but that's not the only concern.
