1. Can the wheel & tyre fit securely in the trunk (eg by taking out the BMW OEM mobility kit and the soft material that keeps it in place)?

2. I am not sure I understand what the centering rings are for and where are they placed. A hint will be much appreciated!
1. No, the area is too small. Best bet is to put it on the forward area of the trunk floor with a bungie cord over. The jack will fit under the floor panel.
2. The centering ring reduces the ID of the hub hole in the non-stock wheel to make sure the wheel is more accurately centered on the hub than with the bolts alone.
