i have a e39 and im trying to buy aftermarket rims for it,
but i have no idea which sizes i can fit on it...
right now i have the stock 15inch wheels.
can anyone guide me in the right direction?
and do I have to play around with my suspention or any other part if i upgrade the wheels to 18's?


plz help..:)

check breyton, hamann, hartge, HRE
possibilities are endless
they all have the proper offset for your car, but ensure that you keep the stock diametre by running the proper size tire

19 inch will fit
I have seen ppl with 20 inch wheel on e39 ... they also fit but you need to roll the fenders.
but 18 or 19 inch should be just fine.
BBS LMs are among the best looking rims and they only come in 19 inch

LM's come in 17 and 18's!

But agreed, 19 LM's would look incredible, but if you want a clean looking set of rims, go OEM, someone is selling the BBS style 540 rims, 17's, i would buy a 540 just for the rims!

Breytons look a bit too feminine IMHO
