Hi folks,

Just wondering if a 19" x 10J wheel will fit on the rear of a UK E39 M5 (2001)?

Thanks
Nick

If the offset is anywhere between 18-25 then yes.

They're bbs lm's... I hope! Not 100% certain as to their authenticity, but pretty sure. Will get them checked out by someone who knows their alloys very soon. So, put them on today, to check they fit and they do... and blimey, they look luv-er-ly :tonquesmilie:

Will need full refurbishment and going with black centres and chrome lip.... will look savage, I hope :cheers:

Once they're on the car, I'll post some pitctures.

Now theres a good question.... they're off the car and in storage for winter now so I cant quickly run out and check. IIrc, they're running the standard OEM sizes both front and rear, so the rears are a little narrow. When I bought them, they came with brand new tyres on them so I wasnt going to replace the rears; however, when I replace the rears I will go with the correct size.

black wheels with polished lips always look smaller than an all silver wheel, just a natural illusion they create. i think theyd look good if the car was lowered a bit to fill up the wheel wells a little better. i am jealous i want lm's! or even reps, but still.
