Anyone have any 16 inch BMW wheels that will fit the E39/E38. The hub centric diameter is larger than other models.

Please send me a PM.

Actually the E39 has a 74.1mm hub. All other 7's, 5's, and 3's have 72.56. So E39 rims will fit all with hubcentric rings (given the right offset; 3's being too high for others without spacers).

E38 rims will not fit E39's unless they are machined larger.

Thanks to all of you who responsed to my request. I picked up a fairly decent set of BBS mesh wheels at a great price to night.
