Hubcentric Wheels??? E34 Problem-HELP!!!

Hello, I am new to the BMW world altogether, so I want to apologise up front for my ignorance... I just bought a 1990 model 535I (E34) and it has a bad shake in the front end... Initially I thought it was the brake rotors... Not the case. I then had the tires psi checked and rebalanced, not the case either. I was reading another post on here that was discussing hubcentric wheels and the very same shake I am experiencing. I have the wheel below... Can anyone tell me which hub ring that I would need for this wheel? When I reinstalled my wheels I noticed that there was some "play" in the hub area, so I believe this may be my issue and hopefully the ring will be the resolution.

If there is a slight gap inside the centre-ring when fitted then you'll need a set of spigot-rings ! Otherwise, it could be a suspension or bushes issue...

There is definately a gap... I just need to know what size hub (OD) my E34 has and what size hub opening (ID) this type of wheel has or how to properly measure them.

Ok... I believe that the wheels on my car are from an E39, approximately a 1997 model.

Welcome to the Werkz.

You should be able to get some adapters (effectively a shim) to adapt the E39 wheels which have a 74.2mm diameter (from memory, don't rely on this figures) to a 72.1mm ring diameter.
There are plenty of other issues that can cause this sort of vibration, such as control arms, disc rotors or wheel bearings.

Good luck

If you go on ebay and type in BMW e39 hub centric, you find what you need. There is only one size available for the e39 wheel. I too had this same problem when I bought my e39 wheels.
