New wheels, offset help?

Thinking about getting TSW Mirabeau 19 inch wheels in matte black. What do you guys think about these wheels, and what offset should I go with?? My car has been lowered by the previous owner not sure how much though... I'm assuming that it is just an HR or Eibach springs... Thanks!

I just had 19" TSW Nurburgring installed on my M5 so the TSW Mirabeau should work also. My car has Dinan springs which only lower a smidge but I still think your springs will work too. I bought them from a dealer here in Phoenix, but they sell nationally. Give them a call (Robert I think?), he will remember my car. Make sure they give you the hub rings (they forgot mine) that come from TSW. The wheel has 76mm bore but our hub is only 72.5mm. Some people will tell you that you don't need hub rings because the bolts lock it down perfectly centrally but this is BS. My car had a shimmy until I got the hub rings installed, now it runs smooth as glass and performed flawlessly at the track day I just did.

You don't have different choices of offset with TSW but trust that these will work (15mm front and 27mm rear)

Not sure what tire size your looking at but the TSW wheels are slightly wider (9.0 front 10.5 rear) so 255 front and 295 rear tires will be the square fit for them. You could go 245 and 285 if you like the stretched look. You will likely need spacers on front to clear strut so order the 12mm spacers from turner motosports with the longer bolts. My rears bolted right on. The fitment on mine looks perfect now.

I screwed around with my wheel and tire fitment for literally two months before I got it right, so hopefully my pain will benefit someone else.

You will need TMPS sensors if your M5 is 2007 or newer (check with BMW on this). Mine is 2006 so no sensors needed (senses wheel rotation).

Awesome, thanks!! Not sure if I want to go as wide as 10.5, but it looks like they only come in a 9... Love your wheels as well!
