E39 540i Wheel Fitment

Im considering some wheels

Front 19x8.5 20mm offset
Front tire: 245/35/19

Rear 19x9.5 22mm offset
Rear tire 275/30/19 or 275/35/19

Will there be any rubbing with these sizes?

I'm running 275/35/18 for summer tires on the rear with a 10" rims with a sport package suspension, so it should be OK.

Davor, remember the wheels must have a hub diameter of 74mm to fit the E39 or you will have to get them machined.

they wont work... the centre bore is too small on those wheels. 72.6 ... you will have to use some sorta spacers.. or drill into the wheels both solutions no go...

also a recommendation if i may.. the e39 someone told me once looks good with "deep dish" style wheels i was very skeptical of this and when i saw the comparison in person it is true... look for wheels that have a lip or wheels that make a bit of a vortex like the style 085.

Also make sure to see the wheels you want to buy on an e39 before...

those are good looking wheels though... miro 111 would fit in 18 and 19.

The V710 come with 72.6 center bore, however i called them and they will bore them to 74.1. They guy told me it would be no issue sice they are doing it for E39s quite frequently.

Had the Deep dish Beyerns, now im thiniking of doing something a bit different.



Here are the photos of V710 on E39

I'm running:

235/35-19x8.5 inch 15mm
265/30-19x9.5 inch 20mm

When I put 10mm spacers, it would rub when bottoming on bumps, but that's fender

Thanks Mark. With the E39 offset they should look pretty sweet, with that convex look. Especialy the rears!

Miro 111 and V710 are very similar. Only thing is that VMRs are a bit edgier, more of a machined look. Thats what caught my eye.

Here are the V710 and V718. Both look sexy!
