I have a 2000 bmw 540/6 with the sports package. Right now I have 17" style 32 sheels which I am selling and I am looking to get either 18" OEM E39 M5 wheels or 18" OEM M-parallels. I know the M-parallels will fit because they were optional for the 2003 540 sport but will the 18" OEM E39 M5 wheels fit my car?

I have a 97 528i with NO sport suspension and have the real oem M5 wheels and they do not rub at all. but if your car is lower (sport suspension package) or have modified suspension you will probably have to get your fenders rolled and possibly get the M5 fender liners. Remember they are 18x8 in front and 18x9.5 in the rear. there are some links in this site for fender rolling faq and m5 liner install.

Good luck

(who needs some lowering springs that will not make my car too bumpy (i have a two year old). and possibly retain factory struts
