Hi guys, I just wanted to say that im new to the forum and this will be my first post. I would like to start off with my car, it is a 1998 528i. I have been looking around for a set of rims now for some time and i have come across a set of real m5 rims not knock offs with good tires, the guy wants $ 1800 for the set and since im new to BMW i thought i would ask u guys if that is a good price or is it to much. thanks for any help.

If they are OEM m5 18 in. wheels that is a fair price depending on condition of the wheels and the tires. Even the tires are very expensive to replace. You might also have rubbing issues on the rear as they are very wide.
Congrats on the e39 purchase. I have a 97 528i and love it. Amazing highway car.

welcome aboard! I have been looking for a set of E39 M5 wheels for my E28, but havnt had much luck finding them much under that price. I know there is/was a set on the auto trader with a set of 325i rims for $1700, though I do not know if they are OEM rims

Those are not M5 rims, they came on 540i M-Sport models.

yes, I don't see why not, you can put 19's & 20's on E39's, up to 10inches wide on the rear & 9inches wide up front on a non-M E39

20's.. wow.. Rubbing issues? I'm on 19x8.5 all around.. i love it.. and by the way with those M5 Rims there are alot of replicas around so you should be able to find out if they are real or not by looking at the back of the hub.. if its real BMW will print in a few items of information..

Okay, this is just my personal opinion, for $1800, I would look around, unless you are specifically looking for M5 wheels, there are a lot of nice wheels that you can get for that price.

Personally, I think M5 wheels are nice, but I think u can find something nicer.

I think you'll need to run the M5 rear fender liners.

maybe for the front, my future setup would be 19x10 on the rear with 275/30 tires & 19x8.5 up front with 245/35, the rears are fine but if I want to run anything wider upfront I would need those M5 feender liners, with the M5 fender liners upfront I can run 265 wide :D

C'mon man, don't stagger! Some nice 265's all around is where it's at. *th-up*

I'm only running 245's all around :(

But you would definitely need to get the M5 liners b/c with 245 on a 9inch rim in the front i rub a tiny bit when the wheel is turned all the way to the right

C'mon Paul, man up. That's only 10mm wider than stock. :P

I know I wanted to be able to rotate and not have to do any fender mods. Good enough for now lol

I'm running:
245/35/19 - Front don't rub with stock suspension and with Bilsteins/H&R setup
275/30/19 - Rear I beleive didn't rub with stock setup and do rub with Bilsteins/H&R setup
20s - you will definitely need M5 fender liners
