BMW 3 Series Spare Tires

The BMW 3 Series used 4x100 mm, 5x112 mm and 5x120 mm bolt pattern variations from 1975 to 2024 along with tire diameters ranging from 23.2" to 27.0" tall. Using a temporary compact spare tire with a diameter close to the standard tire has many benefits, especially for modern vehicles with larger brake calipers and anti-lock brakes or traction control systems.


The tire diameter and the wheel diameter clearance have been taken into account for the specific BMW 3 Series years and options. In this case, 125/80R15, 125/70R17, 125/80R16, 125/80R17, 165/70R17, 125/70R18, 135/70R18 and 145/60R20 spare tire sizes are used to avoid vehicle components while closely matching the original tire size diameters. We've provided a breakdown by vehicle generation and model specifics to help you find the correct BMW 3 Series spare tire.
