malc e is an unknown quantity at this point
(Thread Starter)

I need to know the proper, (factory) offset dimensions for E39 18"x 9J (rear) and 8J (front)rims. I can get M parallel replicas in 8 & 9 inch width but want to be sure I buy with the right offsets.

If anyone has genuine BMW 18" wheels this info is stamped on the inside of their rims where it says ET.

Main dealer was useless...

Any help much appreciated.
