Unhappy *Wheels* (?) on E39 .Please Help.

Looking to purchase wheels for my 2003 540i ///M

found "Linea Corse" wheels that have a following fitment

Quote:
Bolt pattern: 5x120
Size & offset: 19x9.5 +28, 19x8.5 +35


Size: 225/35/19 front
235/35/19 rear


I did little research and this was my next stop (after google ) ... wondering if these will fit my vehicle (and hopefully without spacers)

thanks in advance

where did these wheels come off from, are they from a E46? just asking cause those tires are pretty narrow for a E39, especially a 540.

The offsets are too high, they may touch the struts/springs, and they are most likely for E46 like Quack said, you'll need spacers to runt them with at least 10mm thickness.

You do know that the M5 has a wider 9.5" rim, and the difference is only 20mm between those tires...so nothing close to "huge"...if noticable at all...People run those in the front, WITH spacers!

I think Terry (bmwm5lover) is all squared up with that set-up.
