Will 2008 M5 rims fit on a E39 model?

I can get a good deal on some 08 M5 rims, but I'm not sure if the offset will fit on my 02 525. Does anyone know if they are all the same, or if the bolt pattern is different on the newer years? I've been searching for answers but came up with nothing. Any help would be nice, thanks guys!

I think that the hub size on e60 5 series (2008) is smaller than e39. You can have the centers of the wheels bored to fit the e39 hub but you need to find a reputable shop that specializes in this to do it for you. As far as actual size and whether or not they rub on anything I dont know.

They are M-Parallels. They came on 2003 M Sport package e39's.

So i was looking at rims online and came across this 540 with M5 rims, but I keep reading that the center hub on the M5 rims wont fit on the E39, is it possible for this guy to have had a shop actually put them on for him? These are the exact M5 rims that I want to put on my 525, is it possible?

those rims are for a e39 M5 only those will fit the new M5 rims will not.... the hub on the e39 is larger thus the rim will go on the lugs BUT whount sit flush on the rotor... BUT those rims were desighed for an e39 M5 make sure they are OEM ones! there were replicas made to fit the smaller hub size....

I wouldn't bore at all
adapter plates are more reasonable imo
you will of course lose your negative king pin offset because they're pretty much like spacers

the center hubs for an E39 are 74,1 mm and quite different from al other BMW's.
the other ones use 72,5mm.. so smaller.

Also you have to considder the ET (einpresstiefe) but you can fix that with spacers..



with an higher ET value, your rims will fall deeper (i'm not sure how to say that in english). An E39 has a low ET-value so you problably have to work with spacers (when you take non-e39 rims)
