5 lug is harder to measure because most people want to measure from one bolt to another bolt. If that's the case and he measured from one bolt to the other and got 4.5" that means it's on a 4.75" PCD which is 5x120 as most of the articles and sources claim.

I'm not sure how he did it, but I will check tomorrow.

Got this from the MRW site...

Measure from the center on one hole to the BACK of the third hole.This is the easiest way to estimate a 5-lug bolt circle.
You can also measure from the CENTER of one hole to the CENTER of the third hole using 1.05 multiplier to find your bolt circle.

The truck has been at recon all day, but using my guy's measurement of 4.5" center of one to center of the third lug bolt...times 1.05 like stated above, comes out to 4.725 or 120mm. So he measured right, just calculated wrong. lol

The guy that drove it up(it had Georgia plates) wouldn't let anyone actually drive it on the road because it wasn't an actual production model. We only had it for an "introduction" event. I tried to get one of my techs to put it up and take a couple wheels off but he was too scared. LoL

We got a Countryman in yesterday for a demo...my tech had it in the air, definitely has the four bolt mount hubs like the other models as opposed to the BMW press fit bearing style.

I know this thread is really old but I was thinking of this the other day. I was thinking 135i calipers. Is it just a matter of making a bracket to mount them or is there more to it?

Bolt-pattern for the discs, which can be solved by buying two-piece discs (4x100 inner, 135i outer).
Then there's the matter of the brake lines, those might not fit directly. Oh and the bracket
