need spacers brahh


pretty sure you would need them cause of the difference in the size of the brake rotors and such.

send a PM to Ted Kalman on the board here, also www.mye28.com is a great site for info.

I don't think they'll fit. E39 has a larger hub than the rest of the 5's.

E60, E34, E28 are the same however.

Read this.

I stand corrected, E39 and E60 both have bigger center bores. Great site.

but will 15'' rims clear the brakes of a 540? I know it wouldn't clear a e39 540, not sure about the e34 540s

15" rims were stock on E34's.You need hubcentrics to fit an e39 rim onto an e28 which tell's me that an e28 rim will not fit an e39?HMMM?

a 95 540i is not an e39!

its an e34!..

No argument there.Just trying to point out that e28 rims will fit an e34 but not an e39.But e39 rims will fit an e34 and e28 with hubcentrics.

ok, it almost seemed like some of you guys thought it was an e39, with all the e39 talk.

I DID think it was an E39. didn't read carefully enough. E34 540 brakes are slightly larger than 535's but I suspect 15" should fit no problem.

E28 rims will fit E34 no problem 100% or the other way around
Hubs are same size and offsets are the same also.
Even E39 rims fit E34 with a centering ring .
I have 19" hartge rims off a E39 M5 on my E34 fit beautiful.
And look incredible.

Guys, E28 never came with 15", they came with either 14" , trx(390mm) or 16". The 15" winter tire package must have came from a E32 or E34.

I know for sure that the TRX will not fit over the front brakes on a e34 535i
