The 2023 BMW 7 Series wheel adapters are components that come with two sets of bolt patterns. One set is made to the vehicle specification and the other set is machined to the wheel lug pattern. For example, a 5×112 to 5×120 wheel adapter will fit on vehicles whose bolt patterns are 5×112 and the wheels with 5×120 lug patterns. They act as the extensions of the vehicle hubs. So, you can mount different wheels on the 2023 BMW 7 Series G70, regardless of the bolt patterns.
Most 2023 BMW 7 Series wheel adapters can also change the center bore, which provides the same function as the conversion hub-centric rings. You can custom the center diameter size, for example, 66.1mm to 72.5mm. These 2023 BMW 7 Series wheel adapters will transform your lug-centric wheels into hub-centric wheels. Both adapter and the wheel are held on with a safe bolt engagement which prevents the wheels from falling off.
What Sizes of 2023 BMW 7 Series Wheel Adapters Do I Need?
There are a lot of 2023 BMW 7 Series wheel adapters available in the market. Knowing the bolt patterns (also call PCDs) of both your vehicle hubs and wheels is helpful to narrow down the options. A bolt pattern consists of two components: the number of lug holes and the centerline measurement of those lug holes. For example, a 5×112 bolt pattern means there are 5 wheel lugs, and the diameter of the centerline of the wheel lug holes measures 112mm. And if your wheel is made with a 5×120 bolt pattern, then 5×112 to 5×120 wheel adapters will be a perfect option.
Technically speaking, the minimum required thickness is about 1 inch (25mm). Wheel adapters are also wheel spacers. They will stick your wheels out to a certain distance. If your wheels stick in the fender a lot, then using a thicker adapter will push the wheels out further to get flush with the fender flares. This also provides a muscular and powerful look.
What 2023 BMW 7 Series Wheel Adapters Are Best?
If your 2023 BMW 7 Series is equipped with aluminum alloy wheels, then it is recommended to use aluminum wheel adapters. Nowadays, billet aluminum has become the standard metal used for making performance 2023 BMW 7 Series wheel adapters. Aluminum adapters are much lighter than steel ones, which allows for better control. Furthermore, aluminum adapters are not easy to corrode. They will dissipate brake heat better which effectively reduces brake overheating.
Forged 6061-T6 and 7075-T6 aluminum are two popular materials to make quality 2023 BMW 7 Series wheel adapters. After the forged process, the strength, hardness, and toughness are greatly enhanced. Numerous cases have proved that quality aluminum 2023 BMW 7 Series wheel adapters are completely safe for racing or highway driving. Just install them correctly and re-torque them at least once a year, there will be no safety issue.
