Bolt Pattern?

Do you think that the Z5 and Supra will utilize the same hub? If they do which one will it be? A 5x114.3 from Toyota or 5x120 from BMW?

I'm actually really hoping they go with the Toyota 5x114.3 as there are so many more options of wheels to choose from.

What about you?

There might be some sharing of parts just between BMW models, meaning we could see the Z5 getting 5x120. I think its much more important for BMW to go that direction than keep things linear between the Z5 and Supra, plus why should they?

Being built in the same plant and on the same platform, it's only a common thing to happen where they would share parts like this. Huge cut in costs to them.

I wouldn't say a huge cut in cost but it does make streamlining the assembly line much easier.

Well not only that but from an engineering stand point and going off what fits their overall application process for the brand its require they do things like this. Many implications to not, its a brand with many models after all.
