The midget is 4"x4. The BMW rims are 100mm x 4. If you do the math
(25.4mm/inch) the Midget bolt circle is 101.6mm. Close enough to fit... but
I've seen people claim that the combo guarantees wheel stud failure and a
quick trip to the hospital/morgue... and I've had people claim it's worked
for decades with no ill effect.
I suppose if you're wheel studs are a "tad loose" in their hubs you'd never
know the difference.
