97 e39 and 19" staggered rims - looking for advice
Hello I have a 528 and want to install some M5 rims on the car.
Rims are new 19" rims. I will be purchasing them from the website that sells BMW accessories. So here are the details - as I called the site and said that they will work without any issues. I see on several forums that people are having trouble with fitment. A local shop said they will not fit, other local shops say they will rub.
front: 19" 9.0" with 22 offset
rear: 19" 9.5" with 22 offset
the center hubs are for use with the e39
*prefer no spacers or adapters
what size tires would look the best (I am looking for a flush fit to the fender and no rubbing). I would be willing to do coil overs once they are on to lower/adjust the stance. The most important part is that I do not want any rubbing or clearance issues. Some may know I already got some 19" Breytons that did not work out.
Please advise as there are many conflicting advise on this issue. I just don't want another set of rims that do not fit. Thanks and everyone have a great holiday
I have the same car as yours except
mine is a 523i.
Am running 19" Rims also (carlsson) - not sure what offset they are, but i think they are 9.0 and 9.5 or possibly 9 and 10. Will have to have a closer look at the sticker.
Have got 235/35/19 fronts and 255/35/18 rears. The rims
and tyres are perfecty flush with the rest of the car and if lowered further will tuck JUST inside the wheel arches and not run. Will have to adjust the camber in the rear for it to fit nicely in case I have a full car so it doesn't rub bu apart from that looks great, sits flush.
If you don't mind me asking, ow much are the M5s setting u back?
