well I just got back from the tire place, they are a no go. Something to do with where the Hub meets the wheel they are two different sizes, and when the wheel goes on it's close to touching the spring.

Too bad I never saw the thread, I could have told you about the hub size issue. E39 and newer 5's have 74.1mm hubs, other BMWs have 72.6mm. Just get centering rings from Tirerack.

And that wheel is 17x8 ET20. I don't think it should have any suspension contact issues.

Yeah, just get the metal centering rings from Tirerack and mount them up.

And don't ever go back to that tire shop again, they're not the brightest.

Jay, I thought E60's went back to the 72.6 mm hub bore, did they not?

Wait, you're right.

Even more reason to run away from that shop.

is there any way that either of you could take a look for me? If so I don't mind throwing you some $$ for your time if you can get them on. Just need to get some rubber on them now any suggestions for a T1-R alternative?

Thanks

^^ cool thanks for the info. Looks good R2! the ones I plan to get are smoked but I want the ones that have the same front piece as the OEM ones, the opaque ones not the clear front like the one you have. Looks good none the less man
