Offset Question - E39 540i with BBS RC092
hi folks!

just want to make sure i can make this work on my car, which is a 2003 540iT with m-package and m-sport suspension (self leveling). i'd like to put 18x9" BBS RC092 on the rear axle with a 10mm hub adapter that adds another 10mm to the rims 22mm offset. i hope you guys can tell me if that works. cheers!

typo correction:
it's BBS RC062 rear and RC092 front

additional information:
adapter is 15mm thick (minimum available from H&R)
tires on the new rims would be 275/35 bridgestones
current setup is 17x8 with 20 offset and 235/45 tires

can anybody shed some light on this for me? :confused:

i'm surprised, it looks like nobody on here attempted this before. i did buy a set of adapters so i might try them on.
for now my touring will be riding on a "decent" set of staggered 18" m parallels i recently purchased on m5board. *wave*

thanks for the offer, but i don't roll with replicas...

Only saw this now. With 275 tires and 10mm spacers, you will rub. It should *just* work without the spacers.

thanks dude. i should have known to just go and ask stance about this one. lol
since the rears have a different centre bore i can't go without adapters (15mm).
no worries though, i'll probably keep the H&R adapters anyways or sell them later.

It depends how low you want to go! I am running 255 rears with 15mm spacers and it does rub, even with rolled fenders.

don't wanna go any lower than it already is with stock m sport suspension.
looks like i'll be sticking to the style 37s. nothing wrong with that really... *love*
