Wheel identification

Does anyone know the size and offset details of these wheels that are off an 2004 - 2005 X5 from either personal experience or from OEM information?

I am thinking about this sort of rim for use on my 2000 740iL with 275/40-19R & 245/40-19F rubber, does anyone see any issues with that?

I think I may have found the answer to this issue myself.
From what I can guage, these rims are the E53 X5 4.4i BMW LA wheel, V spoke 63, which are 9JX19 ET:48 & 10JX19 ET:45. From what I can figure out, these offsets are going to bring everything too far into the car without the use of spacers. So how big can you safely / sensibly go with a spacer?

You'll need HUGE spacers for that on a e38. Think like 35mm or so; and rolled fenders.

That said, those are some of my favorite wheels BMW made lately; would love to have a set on my e36 (although all 4 would have to be the fronts) -- was just playing with a tire size calc. and its feasible.

The offset on the above rims at +45 are way to high in comparison to the current 16" rims at +20. But I have found some others which are a better option, 19" x 9" +24.

Why would all 4 have to be on the front, your either running some "Road Warrior" (Mad Max) tyled tandem wheel setup, or you have tires that are tooooo wide to fit a tiny 19x9" rim on the back.
